Hot Lunch » Overview

Overview

 
Compass Hot Lunch is really something to celebrate, as our in-house chefs create healthy menus and prepare nutritious meals for our students. Orders are placed monthly, and deadlines are firm for each month to accommodate the food orders placed by our Kitchen Managers. Mark your calendars so you don't miss out! 
 
2022 Deadlines
 
May Hot Lunch 
Order form shared on April 15th 
Order form due on April 24th 
 
Beginning in May, Wheat Ridge campus is no longer providing sack lunches for field trips or going-outs. (Golden doesn't offer sack lunches, and will continue to not do so). Please ensure your child brings lunch from home on these days. All pre-ordered lunches are charged whether or not your child is present, which includes any off-campus excursions. We appreciate your understanding and support of our no-refund policy.
 
HOW TO PAY FOR HOT LUNCH?
As a reminder, we do NOT use School Cafe in Jeffco and your Hot Lunch fees will be listed in your "Jeffco Student Fee Payment" link of your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. (Once you log into IC Parent Portal, click "More" in the left column and you'll see this fees link.) This is one of those things unique to Compass as a public charter school, and we're so grateful to be able to offer our own healthy lunch program at our school. We hope you are too, and thanks for your cooperation! 
 
HOW MUCH IS HOT LUNCH?
Hot Lunches are selected on a monthly basis and cost $3.50-$4.00/day depending on grade level and preferences.

OR PACK A LUNCH, YOUR CHOICE!
