Students look forward to lunchtime with their classmates!
Students may choose from these lunch options:

Many students bring their own lunch to school. Please remember that CHA is a Nut-Aware school and to follow the guidelines regarding nuts and products containing nuts.

My Child Forgot to Bring Lunch!
Occasionally a student forgets to bring their lunch to school. If this happens, a parent may bring it 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 may order hot lunches through KIDDOS, an independent hot lunch management company that contracts with CHA. They work with local restaurants to offer menu options for students, PK-Gr 12. Meals cost $5.95 each and will be pre-packaged and labeled for each student who has placed an order.

For questions regarding the KIDDOS hot lunch program, please contact KIDDOS directly at: Please note that orders, changes or cancellations must be made before Wednesday at NOON for the NEXT week of lunches.

What restaurants will KIDDOS use for 2019-20?  Kiddos updates it’s lunch provider restaurants list each year. Some of the restaurants partnering with KIDDOS this year are: Meatheads, Piero’s Pizza, Original Bagel & Bialy, Giordano’s, Yummy Bowl,  Rosati’s, Potbelly, Subway, Suzy’s Swirl, and Dairy Queen.

KIDDOS Lunch Cancellations –  As noted above, KIDDOS lunch cancellations must be made by the Wednesday prior to the week in which the lunch was ordered. In the event of an unforeseen absence, hot lunches will still be delivered to CHA as ordered. Please call the CHA Office, 847-446-5252 to let us know what to do with your purchased lunch. Hot lunches may NOT be picked up after the Lunch Period has ended. Also, there are no refunds on orders that have been provided, but you do 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. Lunches may NOT be given to another student and lunches may NOT be saved until the next day.

A Hot Dog lunch is offered to students and staff on one Wednesday per month during the school year, September-May. The nine Hot Dog Days for this year are listed on the CHA calendar in your Veracross portal. The meal includes choice of one or two hot dogs, plus chips and dessert. To purchase an individual hog dog lunch students must bring money to purchase it on Hot Dog Day (one hot dog: $4.00 / two hot dogs: $5.00).

Purchase a “Hot Dog Year-Pass”
Students may also purchase a “Hot Dog Year Pass” which is good in advance for the entire school year and eliminates the need to remember to bring money to school on Hot Dog Days. Please order by clicking the order form button bottom of this page.

Students (PreK-Grade 12) may order chocolate or white milk for the entire year. The cost will be billed to student’s tuition invoice. Milk delivery will begin on Monday, Aug. 26, 2019. Please order by clicking the order form button at the bottom of this page.

Preschool students who are enrolled in a CHA morning class may extend his/her day until 1 pm. Lunch Bunch may be used on a regular or occasional basis.
