Food Services

Greetings from Chef Dena !  The Calais Elementary School offers a breakfast and a hot lunch program. These nutritious and carefully prepared meals are offered every school day. Menus are sent monthly with the school newsletters to allow students and parents to select meals. 

Due to a Federal Grant  Breakfast and Lunch is free to all students for the 2020-21 school year.

Payments for food services are made on a debit card system. Each child is issued a picture ID when school pictures are taken in September, but we track accounts using student last names prior to the ID cards arriving.

Meals are to be prepaid. When making a deposit, please send checks made out to “Calais Elementary School” in an envelope clearly marked “Food Service.” We suggest beginning with a deposit of $32.50 to each child’s account; this will cover two weeks of full-priced lunches. You will receive periodic statements showing any money owed. These are NOT bills; they are over-draw notices. If you receive one of these pink statements, please make a deposit into your child’s account that will cover the over-draw as well as upcoming meals.    A white statement indicates the positive balance on your child's account.  If you have questions about the system or the status of an account, please contact Dena Cox at 454-7777 ext. 121 or
