  Lunch and Recess  
 
  • Lunch is served daily in the school cafeteria to students.  The menu may be accessed our school website at http://dartmouthps.des.schoolfusion.us under “General Information.”
  • The price of a school lunch is $2.25, including milk.  This does not include dessert or ice cream which is an extra $ .75. 
  • Students who choose to bring lunch from home can purchase milk for $ .60.
  • You may prepay your child's lunch by sending money or a check payable to Town of Dartmouth/DeMello School to the school cafeteria in a sealed envelope on Monday mornings. The envelope should contain your child's full name and teacher's name on the front. Another option is to create an online account at myschoolbucks.com. MySchoolBucks allows you to check balances, review transaction history and receive low balance alerts, all for no charge.  There is a small convenience fee if you make payment to your child’s school meal account via the Internet. If you have any questions, you can email support@myschoolbucks.com. Details about this program will be sent home with your child by Mrs. Gaspar, our cafeteria manager, or found on the District website at www.dartmouthps.schoolfusion.us.
  • According to the Dartmouth School Committee Policy, once a student owes $12.00, the student will receive alternate meals.  The alternate meals will be charged at the standard rate and will be as follows: Breakfast – 2 slices wheat toast, fruit, and milk.  Lunch – a cheese sandwich, fruit,  vegetable, and milk.  Students with outstanding balances will receive notices that state the amount owed.
  • Free and reduced breakfast/lunch applications are always available online and in the office.  Please feel free to complete the forms to see if you qualify for reduced or free breakfast and lunch.  All information is strictly confidential.
  • Students are not allowed to share any food/snacks due to potential food allergies.
  • Parents/guardians who would like to have lunch with their child in the cafeteria need to have an approved CORI application and are asked to inform the office in advance of the lunch and wear a visitor’s badge.
  • The lunch recess and an additional afternoon recess for Grade 1 & 2 students are held outdoors unless the weather is inclement.  Please have your child dress according to the weather. We do not allow shorts below 40 degrees.
