Cafeteria Procedures

Maxwell School serves breakfast and lunch each day.  Students eating breakfast should arrive at 7:35AM.  Staff members will be available to supervise students eating breakfast. 

We ask parents to encourage your child to eat a well-balanced meal each day.  Lunch choices include 2 meats (choose 1), 5 vegetables (choose 2), milk (white or chocolate) and dessert (occasionally). Ice cream and cookies are available at lunch for an additional cost.

Payment for breakfast and lunch can be made daily, weekly, biweekly, and monthly at school or via the Internet at www.k12paymentcenter.com.  If a child is pre-paying for breakfast or lunch, the money should be brought to the collection clerk in the morning.  Prepayments must be made before 10:00 AM to ensure credit is properly given. Students that do not have lunch money may charge that day's lunch. The school does not allow students to charge lunch two days in a row. Parents must send the money in the next day. 

PreK students are encouraged to join us for breakfast and lunch with a parent.
