Food Service Program
Nutrition and physical activity influence a child's development, health status, well being and potential for learning. Students who practice good nutrition attend school with minds and bodies ready to take advantage of their learning environment. The Platteville School District encourages all members of the school community to help create an environment that supports healthy, lifelong habits and develop school programming that reflects and encourages positive nutritional choices. (see Platteville School District Wellness Policy IGAE).
School Lunch and Breakfast
The School District of Platteville shall provide students breakfast and lunch through participation in the National School Lunch Program. The Platteville School District participates in the USDA's Free and Reduced Lunch Program and applications are available to anyone at any time.

Food Account Information:
♦ Each family has their own food account and all family members share the same account.
♦ A positive balance must be maintained at all times, (it works like a debit system) in order for the child(ren) to be allowed to eat. You can check your family lunch account on line through Skyward Family Access.
♦ A payor notice is sent home with one child from the family the first week of each month.
♦ Families may apply at any time during the school year for free/reduced priced meals. Children who qualify for free or reduced priced meals are not publicly identified in any way.
