School Menus

On days where there may be school delays or cancellations, menus are subject to change to Cook's Choice.


NOTE: Learning Express Preschool at Penn-Lincoln Elementary follows the Elementary Menus. Some changes may be made to the menus without notice to accommodate the needs of the Preschool students. Also be advised that the Preschool does NOT follow the AASD School Calendar, but their own LEX Calendar which may be accessed on the
Preschool Website.

 

(Menus are provided in PDF format. If you need a different format, please contact [email protected].)

 
USDA Free and Reduced Lunch - School Meals Program
 
The National School Breakfast Program feeds 10 million children each day, and the National School Lunch Program feeds more than 30 million students. With so many children receiving as much as 50 percent of their daily caloric intake from school meals, it is vital for schools to provide nutritious food alongside the best possible education for the success of their students.
 
(For assistance in completing forms, please call Sandy Becker at (814) 946-8270.)
