Meal prices for the 19/20 school year will increase slightly. Breakfast for all grades will be $1.70. Lunch for grades K-5 will be $2.20 and for grades 6-12 will be $2.45. Parents may make deposits into meal accounts or check balances through their Parent Portal starting August 1st. As always, you may send cash or check with your student on the first day of school. The new menu is located on the Douglas School website:

As a reminder, if you were on the free/reduced meal program last year, your status will carry over into the new school year until October 10. On that date, if you have not filled out a new application, your status will automatically revert to fully paid. You can find the new application on the Parent Portal under the application/form tab.

If you are unable to log into your Parent Portal, you can get assistance with the building secretary. Please bring in ID as login information is confidential.
