Lunch Policies

All policies and procedures in the return to school plan supersede anything in our handbook until further notice. Students have the option of bringing their lunch from home or purchasing hot lunch on a monthly basis. Please place all lunch orders online using and make your payments via PayPal. All families must register and create an account to access the hot lunch program. You may purchase milk on a yearly basis. Any beverage brought from home must be in unbreakable containers. Parents should not bring lunches from carry-out restaurants, nor should they schedule delivery of lunches from these restaurants directly to the school.

To lessen the risk of causing an allergic reaction in students with food allergies, we ask students not to share food with anyone. For students with food allergies, we have provided a specific table for eating lunch. Parents/guardians of students in grades three through eight may opt to have their child sit at lunch tables not specifically designated for students with food related allergies. You must request a form for this option.

Lenten Service Project Update

Many thanks to all our school families for your generosity to our school-wide Lenten service project. As you know, we are currently raising funds in support of the Connecticut Food Bank and the Divine Mercy Parish Food Pantry. Both these programs provide help to feed insecure families, including the many children throughout our state who are affected by hunger. We are especially grateful and proud of our St. Rita School students who have donated their own money, including their snack money, toward helping those in need. To date, we have raised $4,812.88. Again, thank you for your contributions and your continued help with this important and essential project.
