Saint Albert Catholic School is committed to providing nutritious, well-balanced meals for our students. Breakfast and lunch are available. Our menus are planned by Chef Jess according to what is in season. We strive to use local fresh fruits and vegetables.
Bakery items are all whole grain and most are delivered daily from Rotella’s Bakery. Bakery items not delivered by Rotella’s are made fresh in the Saint Albert Kitchen the day that they are served and include our cinnamon rolls and French bread.
We offer milk from Prairieland Dairy in Firth, Nebraska. We offer a choice of skim white milk, skim chocolate milk and 1% white milk.
Saint Albert Catholic School participates in the Federal Hot Lunch Program. The federal government provides subsidies for meals sold to students in order to help keep nutritious meals affordable. We strongly encourage families to apply for free or reduced-price meals. If you meet the qualifications, your children will be able to eat both breakfast and lunch for free or at a reduced price.
Prices & Meal Payment Options
Saint Albert Catholic School uses PowerSchool to manage lunch accounts. You can check your child’s lunch balance using your PowerSchool Student and Parent sign-in. You are encouraged to set up PowerSchool to send an email notification to let you know when funds are low in your child’s account.
Students need to have a positive fund balance in their account to purchase meals. One check can be written for all of your children; just include all of their names on the outside of the envelope and how much you would like to be deposited into each child’s account.
At the Elementary School, you can drop off your payment in the Elementary office or your child can turn it in to their teacher. Please put your child’s lunch payment in an envelope with their name, the words “lunch money,” and the amount marked on the outside of the envelope.
At the Middle School and High School, lunch payments can be turned in to the Middle School and High School office in the morning before school or at lunchtime to the kitchen staff member at the computer. The payments need to be in an envelope with your child’s name and the amount of the lunch deposit marked on the outside of the envelope.
Saint Albert also offers online payments for the meals. Any funds left at the end of the school year will be rolled over for the following school year. Visit the Online Payments tab to learn more.
