Lunch Program

St. Vincent Elementary School offers a hot lunch program for all students each full school day. Parents need to be aware that there are certain stipulations and regulations made by the government in order to receive federal funds for the cafeteria program.  The cafeteria staff do their very best to provide nourishing, appealing meals within these guidelines and within the expectation that the Food Service Program be a self-sustaining entity of the St. Vincent de Paul Schools.

  1. Students may either buy the lunch offered in the cafeteria or bring their lunch to school. Students that bring their lunch may buy milk on a daily basis for 50 cents a carton. Students may not leave the school grounds to buy a lunch.
  2. The cost for the lunch each day is $3.00.  Students may also purchase a second carton of milk for 50 cents.
  3. The Federal government offers meals at a free or reduced rate for families that meet the criteria. These guidelines are based on salary and size of a family. This criteria and an application is available to all families on the parent forms page or at the Registration Night in August. If your family status changes during the year, applications are also available at the school office. This information is confidential so please return the form in an envelope marked  “Cafeteria”.
  4. If a student has a food allergy to a certain type of food or milk, or if they have special dietary needs, please notify the school nurse in a written note with documentation from your family doctor.
  5. Each student will be issued a cafeteria ID number and ID card. This card will be swiped when your child buys a lunch or milk. This ID card works like a debit card. Parents need to send money to school at the beginning of the week or month in an envelope marked “cafeteria” or “lunch money” and with your child’s name. Checks need to be made payable to St. Vincent Cafeteria. This money will be deposited in your child’s account. Each time your child buys a lunch or milk, the money will be subtracted from his/her account. Occasionally a child’s account will run out of money and a note will be sent home if your child owes money.
  6. Lost or broken ID cards cost $5.00 to have replaced. A note will be sent to the parent if this happens. In order to teach the children responsibility, parents are encouraged to have the child pays the $5.00 for the replacement card.
  7. A lunch menu is posted above on and placed in the Messenger .
  8. Tami Lohmann is the Food Service Director. If you have any questions, you may reach her at the High School at 547-4300 or leave her voice mail at ext. 247.

SV Educational Foundation Funds Local March for Life

We are so grateful to the SV Educational Foundation for covering the $25 cost for every high school student to attend the March for Life events this year.

COVID has put a different look on so many things this school year and March for Life is a big one. It was with sadness that the decision was made that students would not attend the march in Washington D.C. With safety of our students being number one, alternative plans were soon set in place.

On January 29 we will be having our very own March For Life events on campus, with a march downtown at 10:00 a.m. All students in grades 7-12 will participate in the march with the 7th and 8th graders arriving back at SV de Paul at about 10:45 for lunch and to resume their regular afternoon classes.

High school students (grades 9-12) will have breakfast and hear a historical overview of abortion legislation in the United States. SV Students for Life will then talk before students get lined up for the march. Lunch for this group is provided by SV Youth Ministry/VMY and then students will hear words from our featured guest, Tony Melendez.

We ask that students bring coats, gloves, hats, etc to stay warm.

Music, a guest speaker and small group discussion will conclude the afternoon, after prayer at 4:00 P.M. Students that do not drive can be picked up from St. Vincent Gym lobby area.

Permission forms are due on January 15. Students will receive permission forms today and a copy is attached to this email. Students will be assigned to teacher groups for supervision and small Pro-Life talks/discussion.

Again, thank you to the Educational Foundation for making this possible for our students!

If you have already paid the $25.00 to Emily Hager for March For Life, you will be reimbursed. If you have any questions, please contact Emily Hager at 573-547-4300 ext 106 or via email at ehager@svdepaul.org.
