Food Services and Nutrition
ASD has two student cafeterias serving K2-12 students and three food service vendors providing the opportunity to purchase lunch and after school snacks. Right Bite (hot meals), Subway and The Juice Bar provide healthy, balanced options for purchase with an emphasis on choice. All students may bring sack lunches, if desired. Monthly lunch menus, ordering Subway online (older students) and grab and go counters make lunch planning convenient. Currently, all purchases are made in cash; families with younger students have the option to purchase lunch meal coupons that are managed by classroom teachers. All K1 students bring sack lunches from home. Enrolled families have access to monthly lunch menus and services.
Each food vendor provides some after school snack options. The ASD Booster Club Falcon’s Nest concession stand also provides food options for many afternoon, weekend and evening activities.
ASD is an allergen aware campus, and not an allergen free school. An allergen aware campus seeks to create an environment in which children with severe allergies can progressively assume responsibility for monitoring and taking action aligned with their medical condition. ASD provides food labeling and monitors the sales of foods with allergens most likely to cause severe reactions. ASD parents should contact the Health Office to provide all medical conditions of students.
An ASD Nutrition Committee, comprised of faculty and parent volunteers, helps bring nutrition to the forefront of ASD food services. ASD provides a food labeling and ranking system to support education on food choices.
