Meal Plan and Menus

January 2018 Breakfast and Lunch Menu

NHCS offers breakfast and lunch daily to all students. We serve nutritious meals at low or no cost, depending on family income.

To apply for a reduced/free meal plan, please contact Linda Chapin, Dining Hall Manager. If you receive a Direct Certification letter, please attach it to the meal application—you do not need to fill out the application.

After processing the applications, NHCS will send a letter to your household notifying you if your student is eligible for free, reduced, or full price meals.  During the first thirty days of school, students receive meals based on their previous year’s eligibility status.

For students in grades 6 – 7, breakfast is served beginning at 7:40.  Classroom instruction begins at 8:00am.

For students in K1 – 5th grade, breakfast is served beginning at 8:15.  Classroom instruction begins at 8:30am.

Lunch for all students is served in the Dining Hall at scheduled times for each grade.
