Fox River Grove School District 3 Lunch Program

    • School District 3 participates in the National School Lunch Program and offers a daily hot lunch to all students in grades K through 8. Hot lunches are $3.00 each and include one entrée of the day, vegetable, fruit, grain and milk (1% white or fat free chocolate). Individual milk is $.60 per carton.

    • Keep up to date on your student’s lunch account by creating an account at www.schoolpaymentportal.com. You will be able to access your student’s lunch account and see purchases and deposits made to the account. Notices will be emailed when the student’s lunch account is at $2.00 or less on the day sent.

    • You may deposit lunch/snack money (check or cash) by sending it to the offices at ARS or the Middle School for your student’s lunch account. Please make checks payable to School District 3 and write your student’s name and grade on the check. If sending cash, please put student’s name on outer envelope. Payment is also available through www.schoolpaymentportal.com if you wish to use a credit card or debit card.

    • District 3 offers a variety of approved Smart Snacks, foods and beverages that are lower in fat, calories and sugar (all approved by the State) at the Middle School only.

    • The meal menus are a summary of daily offerings. If you have any questions regarding the menu or nutritional information, please contact Janet at 847/462-2325 or molletj@dist3.org.

District 3 Families,

School District 3’s Lunch Program Staff is excited to get back to serving our students tasty, nutritional lunches. We look forward to the day when we will be able to see the happy smiling faces of all our students again as they proceed through the lunch lines.

In the meantime, a new plan is being put in place to provide lunches. Lunches will be pre-ordered each week using Google Forms. A menu will be on the school website as well as listed on the form. Lunch orders will need to be placed each week by Thursday for the following week for each student. The form will list the student’s name, lunches needed, milk variety and a phone number for any communication needs.

When picking up lunches, please use the district guidelines of wearing a face mask and social distancing 6 feet. We will need a few moments to check the student’s name to match the lunch. (This is a different structure from last spring’s lunch system.) Meal pick-up will be from 3:15 to 3:45 at the Middle School. Drops will be arranged with those unable to pick-up. Lunch PU/drop days will be Monday afternoon for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday lunches, and Thursday afternoon for Friday and Monday lunches. If there is a four day week, Monday’s PU will be moved to Tuesday, and Thursday PU wil have Tuesday’s lunch.

For secure, contact free payments, lunch deposits may be made on-line through www.schoolpaymentportal.com. Set up a family account at this site. There is a School Payment Portal-Parents Guide to Getting Started available on the school website. Click: Our District, then the drop-downs: Departments, Food Service, . This is also a great way to follow a student’s account for purchases and deposits. If you wish to pay by check or cash, please place the payment in an envelope with the student’s name and school written on the outside. This may be mailed into the district office: Fox River Grove School District 3, Attention: Lunch Program, 403 Orchard Street, Fox River Grove, IL 60021, or handed to the lunch staff at the lunch distribution site.

Please contact me at molletj@dist3.org if you have any questions or concerns, or if I can assist you with anything else. Thank you all for your support and flexibility as we go through this time together.


Respectfully,

Janet Mollet
