Regular school breakfasts and lunches are served FREE of charge for Polk County Public School students.  Students must have money available in their lunch accounts to purchase additional food or cookies..  Students are expected to exhibit proper conduct in the cafeteria and follow posted rules.  Students will report to the cafeteria during their assigned time.  Students are not allowed on other parts of the campus during lunch.  Parents/guardians are welcome to visit their student during the students assigned lunch time, if space is available.  Parents/guardians you are requested to sit outside at the round picnic tables.  Parents/guardians can only provide lunch for their custodial child and those allowed contact per the emergency card on file.  Food purchased from outside “fast food” restaurants must remain in the original packaging and is not permitted inside the cafeteria.  Students cannot have food delivered to the school by parents/guardians or professional delivery services.  Students can only consume outside food if brought by a person listed on the emergency contact card, and that person stays to eat with the student.
