Child Nutrition Services


Good nutrition supports student development. A wholesome and nutritious breakfast and lunch are provided to all District students. Our food service program incorporates organic and local produce whenever possible as budget allows. Annual community fund raisers help to support organic purchases. All meals and beverages meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. Our meals are very appealing and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Green Efforts

Grizzly Hill School became a 100% solar during the 2012-2013 school year. It currently enjoys an education PGE solar panel which can be monitored by students. Washington School is not a suitable solar site, unfortunately. Both schools are very conscientious about waste production. The food program no longer uses disposable products to serve beverages or food, and this creates very little school waste.
