Children need healthy meals to learn. PVPA offers healthy meals every school day. PVPA does not have a cafeteria. We contract with the South Hadley School District to supply our school lunches. This school year, lunches cost $3.00 per day. The fee for reduced lunch is $0.40 per day. Your child (children) may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals. Families who are enrolled in certain government programs will be automatically certified to receive free lunch and will be notified of the their “free” status before the start of school. Families who are not automatically certified can still apply for free or reduced status by filling out and returning the Free & Reduced Lunch Application. To access the application, please see the 'Lunch' section of the Documents & Forms page listed on the menu to the left. Hard copy can be found at the Main Office.
At the upper-right, you will find the monthly Lunch Menu. Students wanting lunch (including those with free and reduced status) must fill out a menu and return it to the Main Office promptly - before the date stated on the Menu - along with the payment. It can be sent via regular mail, scanned and emailed to Chelsea JacksonJones at ChelseaJ@pvpa.org, or dropped off in the Main Office. Payment can be done by cash or check to PVPA. Lunch will NOT be automatically ordered for any student.
Lunch cancellation policy
If a family cancels a student lunch before 4:00 p.m. the day prior (4 p.m. Friday for a Monday lunch), then the student account will not be charged. We can not issue credits for student lunches that were not cancelled in a timely manner, as PVPA is required to pay for all lunches ordered, regardless of whether the lunch is received by the student.
