Revere Pride - Catch It!

 Revere Schools Lunch Program Update

Please monitor your child's lunch account using EZPay, and make sure their accounts are fully funded at all times. Low balance letters will no longer come from QSP ~ you will have to sign up to get them from EZPay:

 
The time stamp on all transactions in QSP and EZPay are in CST, so they are 1 hour behind.

Hillcrest Elementary School - $2.65
Bath Elementary School        - $2.65
Revere Middle School            - $2.65
Revere High School                - $2.80
  

 
 

The United States Department of Agriculture introduced a new meal pattern for all schools participating in the National School Lunch Program, which began July 1, 2012.  This included changing portion sizes, types of vegetables we offer, limits on sodium and offering at least 1/2 of the grains as whole grains.  The next phase of this policy began July 1, 2014 ~ stricter limits on sodium, and 100% of grains offered must be whole grain rich.  The following describes the daily meal pattern. All of these components will be offered on a daily basis:

 
Students are required to take at least 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetables in order to count as a full meal.
 
Grades K-5:
1.6oz - 2oz of meat or meat alternate (cheese, eggs, etc.)
1/2 cup of fruit
3/4 cup of vegetables
1.6oz - 1.8oz of grains (all whole grain rich)
8oz. milk - 1% white or fat free chocolate or white
 
Grades 6-8:
1.8oz - 2oz of meat or meat alternate (cheese, eggs, etc.)
1/2 cup of fruit
3/4 cup of vegetables
1.6oz - 2oz of grains (all whole grain rich)
8oz. milk - 1% white or fat free chocolate or white
 
Grades 9-12:
2oz - 2.4oz of meat or meat alternate (cheese, eggs, etc.)
1 cup of fruit (minimum the student must take is 1/2 cup)
1 cup of vegetables (minimum the student must take is 1/2 cup)
2oz - 2.4oz of grains (all whole grain rich)
8oz. milk - 1% white or fat free chocolate or white
 
 
All of our schools are "peanut aware." We do not process any nut containing items, but do have pre-packaged items with nuts, traces of nuts, or manufactured in the same plant as nuts.  If your child is allergic to nuts of any kind, please make sure they read the nutrition label or ask a cafeteria staff member if they have questions.
 
There are several A la Carte items available for purchase during lunch in all the cafeterias.  Students may use their QSP lunch account for purchasing these items.  Due to cost increases from our vendors, our A la Carte prices may change periodically.  Main entrees cost $2.30, and the fruit or veggie side at RHS costs $1.00.  
 
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 were released for public viewing!  Clink on the link from the LINKS page.
 
Don't forget about our Grab-n-Go Breakfast Program at RMS!  Several a la carte items are available from 7:00am-7:30am.  Students use their QSP lunch account for these purchases.  The items and prices are listed under the "Forms" section of the Food Service Website.
 
REMINDER: Change is not given at the cash registers. For example: If your student gives the cashier $1.00 to purchase a milk, the $.50 change will automatically be added to their lunch account.
 
If you ever have any questions about our National School Lunch Program, or QSP, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,
