Lunch tickets may be purchased at a price of 11 lunches for $20.00 by cash or check (preferred) or daily for $2.00. When sending in money for lunch, please make sure that your child's name, grade and room number are enclosed. Checks are made payable to San Leandro Unified School District (SLUSD).
Monthly menus are sent home along with your Wildcat Press and other flyers. If your child does not have any lunch money on a given day, he/she will be allowed to charge a maximum of 2 days. After that time, students are eligible to receive emergency rations of milk and fruit only. Please support us by ensuring that your child has money on his or her account. Milk is available for 30 cents for those students bringing bag lunches.
Free or Reduced Price Lunch
Applications for this important program are available in the office. Eligibility is based on applications being cleared through the Director of Food Services. Parents will be notified as to whether their child or children have been accepted for Free or Reduced lunches. Allow 3 weeks for processing. You must provide a lunch/lunch money until the application is approved. Please note that an application needs to be completed every year. Your reduced status will discontinue if you do not complete an application at the beginning of each new year. We have a computerized system. Students are handed a photo I.D. card, similar to a credit card, by their teacher when they are to eat a hot lunch. They run it through the computer which automatically reduces their lunch count by one. This system does not allow a child to get more than one lunch per day. Free lunch students are assigned a random number to give them the privacy of receiving free lunches. We ask that you explain to your children the importance of these cards. Although students will hold them in their hands while only being in line, we ask for them not to bend or mutilate them in any way. New students will receive their picture I.D. as soon as school pictures are taken.

If your child will be out for 5 days or more and you know in advance of this event, please let the office know so that you can fill out an Independent Study Contract which allows your child to obtain homework for the time they will be out and it will not count as an absence if all work is turned in completed upon returning to school.
When possible please schedule appointments for your child(ren) after school. If this is not possible then please send a note with your child(ren) in the morning specifying the time he/she needs to be released. Students must be signed out in the office by the adult at the time he/she is picked up. If you are leaving early for a medical appointment, you must bring a note from the doctor to clear the time missed.
