Bring Your Own Lunch

Many students bring their own lunch to school. Children must bring their own napkins and utensils, as well as a labeled water bottle (which may be refilled as necessary in our water bottle-filling stations).

Keep in mind that CHA is a “Nut-Aware” school and that we follow the Nut-Aware Guidelines regarding nuts and products containing nuts. Microwaves will be available for Middle and Upper School Students, but use is not recommended. Students should use at their own discretion.

What will happen if your child forgets to bring lunch?
If a parent must bring a student’s lunch after morning arrival, please label the lunch clearly with student’s name and grade, and drop it off at the front desk no later than 11:30 AM to ensure your child receives it by lunchtime. If a child does not have a lunch by 11:30 AM, cold cereal and white milk will be offered (and a $4 fee will be added to the student’s account).

Optional Hot Lunch from KIDDOS

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-Grade 12.

HOT DOG DAYS
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.
