Académie Lafayette offers both breakfast and lunch at all campuses every day.

Full priced breakfast is $2.00 and lunch is $4.25 during the school year. Both meals are catered by Joe Joe’s Catering and served on campus. Students who qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program can receive meals either free or at a reduced price of $.40 for lunch. If you are interested in the Free and Reduced Lunch Program or need to make payment arrangements, please email Peggy Arians or call her at 816.800.8771. The eSchoolCore account page works on a prepaid format. If your child eats school meals we appreciate you adding money to their account in advance. 

Milk is included with the purchase of a school lunch or breakfast. If your child brings lunch, he/she can purchase regular milk, chocolate milk or juice for 25 cents. Parents can send a quarter or purchase a milk card for 20 drinks for $5. Just send money with your child to the office or your child’s teacher in an envelope marked “MILK MONEY“. Please remember that milk sales and meal accounts are separate. Milk cannot be charged. 
Beginning in January 2017, any family that has a lunch bill of $20 or more will receive an automated phone call from the school. That call will be made on the first Wednesday of the month. If you pay online, you will get a confirmation email once your payment has been processed. Please keep in mind that it may take up to a week for the payment to post.
Whenever there is a snow day, lunch the day after is the lunch scheduled to be served on the snow day. The menu is altered just for that one day (due to the product being already purchased). The next day is the regular scheduled meal on the menu.
