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.

We are pleased to inform you that the NICE Community School District will be participating in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for the 2021-2022 school year.

The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students enrolled at Aspen Ridge School and Westwood High School can receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at NO CHARGE (FREE) to your household each day.

We still need your household to fill out and sign the Free and Reduced-Price Meal ApplicationThis information is critical in determining the amount of money that our school receives from a variety of State and Federal supplemental programs like Title I A, At-Risk (31a), Title II A, E-Rate, etc.

Applications are available in the Principal’s office and may be completed and turned in at any time during the school year.
