Countdown to Back to School

Meals at School

We are so pleased to be able to offer breakfast to every student at no charge again this year. The cost of lunch for students is $1.75. The Abbey offers many choices every day along with the main meal so that there is something for everyone! Every lunch comes with a trip to the fresh fruit and vegetable bar.

Free and Reduced Lunch

Starting this year, ALL students who qualify for school meals will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost. That means that even if you qualify for reduced price lunch, your meals will be free. We are hoping every family considers filling out an application. You can find an application in your first day packet, by contacting Desiree Gunter at 527-0565 or by clicking here. If you have questions or need help with your application, please contact Desiree Gunter.

School Lunch Accounts

The Abbey has made it easier than ever to manage your school meals account. You can visit to learn more. There you can set up your child's account where you can sign up for emails when your balance is low, pre-pay for your meals with a credit or debit card, and even check out what your child is choosing for lunch each day.

The Abbey staff will be at our First Day Resource Fair if you need help setting up your online account. 

Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program

SACS will once again provide every student with a fresh fruit or vegetable snack in their classroom each day.

Expanded Snack

Expanded snack will once again be offered to every student enrolled in an after school program. There is no charge for expanded snack. More information about this program will be available when after school programs begin.
