Nutrition

Panther Families,
This year Animas Schools does not qualify for 100% free lunch for our students. The school provides a breakfast for all kids at no cost. The cost for lunch is as follows: $2.00 for students and $3.50 for adults.
Individual student households may still qualify for free or reduced price ($.40) lunch based on household income and other factors. We encourage families who think they qualify or are unsure if they qualify to complete the free and reduced-price meal benefits application, to determine your child’s eligibility. We will have these forms at our open house tonight. Please see the following press release for more information:

It's an obvious fact: our minds and body work better when we have good food to eat. Our cafeteria staff plans and prepares healthy, balanced lunch options for the students of Animas.

APS operates a self-supported school meal program; we appreciate your attention in keeping your child's meal account current, so that we experience a smooth cash flow.

A Good Start: Breakfast Nutritional Boost

Many of our students travel long distances before arriving to our campus. We provide all of our students with a breakfast nutritional boost at no charge, so that we can be sure all of our students start their school day with a satisfied stomach.

Free & Reduced Lunch

We participate in the free and reduced lunch program. This school year Animas Public Schools is offering free meals to all enrolled students/children ages 18 and younger under COVID-19: Child Nutrition Response #85 Nationwide Waiver to Allow the Seamless Summer Option through School Year 2021-2022. Each enrolled student will receive one breakfast and one lunch. We are only serving students, not other children in the household. Please contact Nikki Kremer with any questions or concerns.
