School Lunch Program

Lunchtime at Coronado Preschool

  • This school year our children are enjoying lunchtime in our classrooms as this allows the children to sit together and enjoy eating as a "family". Our school lunches are served family-style as this is considered a best practice at this stage because it involves sitting at the same table in small groups, with children serving themselves when possible and eating with adults while sharing pleasant conversation.
  • If you are interested in school lunch, please visit Child Nutrition Services on, and select 2020-21 Meal applications to create a lunch account or see Miss. Lisa to try and qualify for a free or reduced meal. If you choose to pack a lunch, please make sure all food items are of nutritious value.  Note: if your child attends Extended Care and Preschool please try and label your child's food to indicate what should be eaten for a snack or for lunch.
  • Interested in free or reduced lunches for your child? Please review the links below to see if you qualify. 
  • Creating an online payment account for school lunches is quick and easy.  Visit the link below to learn more!

Applying for free/reduced lunches is optional for our families but providing lunch each day is not so figure out which works best for your family today, bringing or buying, and contact CNS with additional questions.
