Welcome to NICE Community School District Food Service Department.
The kitchen staff at Westwood High School and Aspen Ridge School work hard to provide meals that the students will enjoy and that meet the nutrition guidelines of the USDA as well as the Department of Education.
For the 2022-23 school year, meal pricing will return to paid, reduced, or free depending on eligibility. You MUST fill out and sign the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application and return to the school as soon as possible. This information is used to determine eligibility for free or reduced price meals and is also critical in determining the amount of money that our district receives from a variety of State and Federal supplemental programs like Title I A, At-Risk (31a), Title II A, E-Rate, etc. The lunch prices are $3.25/paid, $0.40/reduced or $0/free for families who qualify.
Applications are available in the Principal’s office or can be printed from the district website and may be completed and turned in at any time during the school year.
More than just school lunches! Breakfast is also available at both buildings for all students. If you qualify for free or reduced lunch, your student(s) also qualify for free or reduced price breakfast.
The NICE breakfast program is available to all students every weekday morning. Times served are Aspen Ridge School 7:45 am – 8:15 am and Westwood High School 7:30 am – 8:00 am. The breakfast prices are $2.00/paid and $0.30/reduced or $0/free for families who qualify.
