Clarkdale-Jerome School is committed to the health and well-being of our students and we believe a nutritious diet helps them perform better in school. We are proud to offer breakfast and lunch service daily in our cafeteria. We use the freshest ingredients available, and offer a wide variety of choices throughout the school year.
Our 2018-19 daily meal rates are: Breakfast - $1.60 Lunch - $2.45
We encourage families to be current on their meal account balances. If your student has a negative balance account, we will provide up to three meals. We will then provide cheese sandwiches while your account is brought up-to-date.
You can now make payments to your student's lunch account through PayPal.
