After learning all morning, students look forward to lunch with their classmates. If you have any questions about our lunch program, please contact the CHA Office. For questions regarding the KIDDOS hot lunch program, please contact KIDDOS directly at

My Child Forgot His/Her Lunch!
Occasionally a student forgets to bring their lunch to school. If this happens, a parent may bring it to school for them, however it must be brought to the CHA Office by 10:30 AM to ensure that the student or their teacher is notified to pick it up in time for their lunch period. Please clearly mark the outside of the lunch with the student’s name and grade. If a child does not have a lunch, cold cereal and white milk will be offered.

Students (PK-Gr 12) who stay for lunch may order chocolate or white milk for the entire year. Cost will be billed to student’s tuition invoice. Milk will begin the first full day of school, Aug. 23. Orders taken through Sept. 30.

Hot Lunch Program
KIDDOS is our hot lunch management company, and will work with local restaurants to offer menu options for students, PK-Gr 12. Meals will cost $5.75 each and will be pre-packaged and labeled for each student.

Ordering Instructions from KIDDOS
(Orders, changes or cancellations must be made before Wednesday at NOON for the NEXT week of lunches.)

>>What restaurants will KIDDOS use for 2018-19?  Kiddos is still updating and adding to their lunch provider list. Once it is ready, we will publish that information here. Until then, we thought it would helpful to give you an sense for the kind of quality restaurants that participate with Kiddos by listing those that participated last year: Meatheads, Josh’s Hot Dogs, Piero’s Pizza, Once Upon a Bagel, Yummy Bowl, McAlisters, Merlo’s Pasta, Rosati’s, La Casa De Isaac and Moishe, Subway, Red Rooster Deli, Potbelly, Suzy’s Swirl, and Dairy Queen. Also for your reference, here is a sample menu of meals offered last year.

>What if my student is absent and he/she ordered KIDDOS lunch?  Please call the CHA Office at 847-446-5252 to let us know what to do with your purchased lunch. There are no refunds, but you have two options: 1) arrange to pick up your child’s lunch during his/her lunch period or 2) gift the lunch to a faculty or staff member. NO lunches may be given to another student and lunches may not be saved until the next day.

Hot Dog Day
Once per month on a Wednesday, students may purchase a hot dog meal, including choice of one or two hot dogs, choice of chips and dessert. Students must bring money to purchase a hot dog meal on the day they are being served (one hot dog: $3.75 / two hot dogs: $4.75). Hot Dog Day dates are listed on School Calendar in your Veracross portal. Students may also purchase a “Hot Dog Day pass” which allows them to purchase these meals in advance for the entire school year. Hot Dog Days are a fundraising effort that benefits the 8th Grade Washington DC trip in the spring, and the All-School Service Learning week in January.
