If your child plans to eat breakfast or lunch at school, school breakfast will cost $1.00 and school lunch will cost $2.00. You can pay cash or check directly to your student’s account with the cafeteria manager, Miss Yolanda or you can pay online via the PayPAMS system available on the district website at www/sandiegounified.org. You are responsible to keep track of the positive balance in the account so that your child may purchase meals at school. Children may bring a healthy cold lunch as well. Milk can be purchased for 50 cents.

 See you on the 27th
