• Student Nutrition is an important part of the school day. South St. Paul Public Schools participates in the National Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program and Kindergarten Milk Program. School lunches and school breakfasts are served at all schools. Our district provides a great variety of meals packed with the energy children need to learn and grow.

    School breakfast consists of a choice of fruits/juices and milk daily along with a variety of menu items. For lunch, the elementary schools provide the students with a choice of a traditional school lunch or an alternate entree. South St. Paul Secondary offers a choice of five different menus daily in addition to a large number of a la carte choices, a variety of milk and a large variety of fruit and vegetables are served to help students meet their nutritional needs. Extra milk can be purchased for $0.45 at all schools.

    We encourage parents to join their elementary students for breakfast or lunch anytime. Parents can pick up a visitor's pass at the elementary's main office.
