Metro School Meals

Metros is now providing breakfast and lunch options for students. Our staff will work with the food service provider to ensure that there are healthy options available every day. Students who need a vegetarian option should notify Mrs. Marshall (marshall@themetroschool.org) to ensure a vegetarian meal is ordered. Pork is never served.

Free Meals for 2020-21 & 2021-22 School Years

School breakfast and lunch are currently free for all students regardless of lunch payment status. This is thanks to special funding available for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years.

Meal Prices

  • For students who are considered full pay, the regular cost for breakfast is $2.00 and the regular cost for lunch is $3.50.

  • For students who qualify for reduced price, the cost for breakfast is $0.30 and the cost for lunch is $0.40.

  • For students who qualify for free meals, breakfast and lunch are provided at no cost.

Payment Options

  • Parents can check the balance owed for school meals on their child’s PowerSchool account. Payment can be made monthly or quarterly, based on the balance.

  • Payment is not taken at the time school meals are served. Instead, parents can pay the balance on their child's account in one of three ways:

    • Cash payments can be made at the Metro front desk during school hours.

    • Payments by check (made out to Metro Schools) can be submitted in person or sent by mail to the attention of Kathy Fries.

    • Payment can be made by credit card using PaySchools. Click here to access the PaySchools portal or use the following link for PaySchools instructions: Make Online Payments

Free/Reduced Payment Status

To determine whether or not your family qualifies for free or reduced lunch, please complete the current 2021-22 Free/Reduced Lunch Application and submit to the front desk. The form must be submitted every school year, even while meals are free. This will allow qualifying students to access extra benefits like fee waivers for standardized tests and college applications and reduced school fees at Metro. It also allows Metro Schools to receive appropriate funding for the school lunch program.
