Nutrition Services

 

The nutrition staff at all three schools are eager to make healthy breakfasts and lunches for students within the Sisters School District.  Whole grains, fruits and vegetables are always used to keep Sisters kids happy and healthy. Students loved our smoothie and muffin breakfast option last year, so it is back again this year on Friday’s as a breakfast choice. We blend our smoothies from fresh / frozen veggies & fruits and use yogurt that does not contain rBST. Our muffins are also made fresh on site using fresh / frozen fruit.

Meal Benefit Update for 2017-18

The Oregon legislature provided funding to eliminate the reduced price payment for School Breakfast and Lunch. For school year 2017 – 2018, breakfast and lunch will be accessible at No Charge to students who qualify for Reduced Price Meals. Please feel free to fill out an application and return to your child’s school at your earliest convenience.
