The El Dorado School District is pleased to announce the district will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) during the 2022 - 2023 school year providing meals, regardless of eligibility category, at NO CHARGE for all students at our schools because we participate in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program. CEP is made possible through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Special Assistance Certification and Reimbursement Community Eligibility Provision. Federal reimbursement for meals is based on the Identified Student Percentage (ISP) established by the District. The information used to establish the ISP will be made available only to State and Federal officials for review. All adults, e.g., visitors, teachers, support staff members, and administrators of the district must assume the full cost of the meal which is $2.50 for Breakfast and $4.00 for Lunch.
At El Dorado Schools, we understand the connection between the physical and mental well-being of our students. That's why we've worked hard to provide a nutritious food service program throughout the district. Our elementary schools serve breakfast in the classrooms for every student. Breakfast is also available at our upper level schools beginning at 7:40 each morning. Lunches at the elementary level usually include two hot meal options of which students can choose one main entree, a side dish, fruit, vegetables, juice and milk. At Washington Middle School, two hot entrees are available for student's choosing or a Grab-and-Go station allows students to quickly get a cold lunch, all with nutritious sides, juice and milk. Barton Junior High and El Dorado High School offer a variety of lunch stations, similar to a mall food court. Daily, students can choose from a homestyle meal, burgers, pizza, salads, custom-made sandwiches, along with a variety of vegetables, fruits and side dishes.
School Personnel/Outside Adult Breakfast: $2.50
School Personnel/Outside Adult Lunch: $4.00
