Lunch sessions are held in both the lower school (6th through 8th grades eat all lunches here) and the upper school (grades 9th through 12th eat all lunches here).
All meals are provided by our catering vendor, Catering Options. This new school year the catering company will offer THREE selections each day. The daily meal price is $4.85. Their current menu will include a hot entrée, a vegetarian entrée, and a sandwich or salad alternating selection. Every meal comes with milk and fresh fruit. Your student may also purchase any additional milk during lunch sessions.
AMSA lunches are pre-ordered a month ahead by ordering online through orgsonline.com. An email is sent from AMSA notifying you when the menu is open for ordering. This email is sent twice to the AMSA community before the cut-off. We are not able to add-on orders after the designated cut-off.

Should your child be out sick for a day, and would like their sandwich or salad meal held, please email email@example.com and we will hold it until the next school day. We will need to know which grade level your child is in since we will refrigerate the meal for them. Your child can enjoy their cold meal the following day. No absentee meals are held at AMSA unless you notify us before the lunches begin that day.
In the event of an emergency closing (snow day), paid meals will be credited to your account.
AMSA is not licensed to reheat or cook foods. Please ensure that your child has everything they may need to eat a lunch from home. (Example: thermos, napkins and utensils)
