School Lunch Menus



The United States Department of Agriculture has extended pandemic flexibilities providing free school meals to all students at all schools through the 2021-2022 school year.

  • No free/reduced meal application is necessary to receive free breakfast and lunch

  • All students at Continental Elementary School are automatically eligible to receive free meals

Although an application is not required for students to receive free meals during the school year 2021-2022, we ask ALL Continental families to complete the 2021-2022  Free & Reduced  application as it does affect other school funding.
