Meal times are a social experience and an opportunity to refine manners. It is a time to enjoy pleasant conversation and food. The children’s work at school is directly affected by the nutritional quality of their meals. Teaching our children the importance of good eating habits while they are very young will benefit them for the rest of their lives. OFMS provides a morning and afternoon snack. Parents have the option of utilizing our food delivery service program or sending a lunch.
Food Delivery Service Program
Local vendors deliver food to OFMS on specified days. Parents that participate in this program must order lunches in advance for the entire month and must turn the lunch order form in by the stated deadline. In order to ensure OFMS students receive the correct lunch in a timely manner, multiple changes and late additions are not permitted. Our experience has been changes often create confusion and result in incorrect lunch orders. Lunch orders may be placed online at: http://etxmontessorischools.h1.hotlunchonline.net
Lunches Brought From Home
Those students that opt to bring their own lunch must bring their lunch in a clearly labeled container. Please be sure and label all containers, utensils, etc. as they can easily be lost or misplaced in a group setting. Parents are asked to send nutritional food in proportions that are appropriate for their child. If food is in the proper containers we will return any uneaten food so you will know how much your child has eaten. Please do not send any food or soft drinks containing sugar such as soda, candy, or gum. Always include a cold pack to ensure freshness. We are able to microwave meals but please limit what you send to foods that can be heated in a minute or less. Utensils must be sent each day for your child to use during lunch.
*The Oak Forest Montessori School is not responsible for the nutritional content of student lunches.*
