Let's get to the heart of the matter for middle schoolers: food. Students are welcome to bring lunch from home or to enjoy the healthy daily specials in our cafeteria, called the Barn. In addition to daily specials, we offer soups, sandwiches, a salad bar, and a vegetarian alternative. Each student has an account number to charge their lunch, and a statement is sent home monthly. The Barn also offers snacks before school, at break, and after school.

Monthly menus are posted on the website at the beginning of each month. Occasionally, the Barn is closed to middle schoolers.
