Lunch and Recess

The Fairfield Public Schools lunch service is provided by Whitsons Culinary Group. Click here to view the monthly menus.

The schools use an electronic process for paying for school lunch called MealPay Plus.

As your child exits the hot lunch line, the Cafeteria Manager uses a computer-based program to select your child’s name/picture and the meal they are purchasing.

Ways to send in the payment for your child’s lunch account
  • You may send in a check or cash to the cafeteria manager.
  • You may pre-pay through using debit or credit card.
  • You may call Mealpay’s toll free number at 1-866-875-6833 and prepay by check, credit or debit card over the phone.
Prices for the 2014-2015 school year

$2.65 for per lunch per day
$0.65 milk per carton
$1.00 for bottled water

Information on opening your child’s lunch account will be sent to you; you can read more at: Mealpay Plus Website

Cafeteria/Lunch Visitors

In the interest of safety, parents can have lunch with their child on his/her birthday only.  If your child’s birthday is during the summer or on the weekend you can plan one alternative time during the school year to enjoy lunch together at school.  All lunch visitors must be scheduled by calling the main office prior to your visit.  We have a special table set aside in the lunchroom for you and your child to enjoy lunch together.  We have a “no sharing food” rule in our school so please only bring food for your child/children.

Lunch hours:
Kindergarten 11:55 – 12:15
Grade 1 12:55 – 1:15
Grade 2 12:25 – 12:45
Grade 3 12:10 – 12:30
Grade 4 1:10 – 1:30
Grade 5 12:40 – 1:00
Playground Rules

All children play outdoors each day, weather permitting. During this recess time the children will follow certain safety rules and be monitored by playground supervisors on duty. Footwear is very important to the safety of the children. Sneakers and rubber soled shoes are best. Grades K-2 will use the back playground and Grades 3-5 will use the front playground. Children are not allowed on the playground unattended.
