Our daycare and preschool classes are members of Georgia's Bright from the Start food program; they are provided with breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack each school day. In addition, we offer hot lunch options for our Academy students. The details for each program are outlined below.
As a member of Georgia's Bright from the Start program, we offer healthy meals (breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack) that comply with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) requirements to all enrolled daycare and Pre-K children.
Our menus are updated monthly and utilize fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables. You can view the monthly menu in your child's classroom, in the day care hallway, and on Jupiter Ed. View a sample menu here.

We provide the opportunity for students in Kindergarten and up to purchase a hot lunch from local restaurants we have partnered with, including Barberitos, Chick-Fil-A, Nikko Express, Pizza Hut, Ocean Galley, Subway, and Baldinos.
The hot lunch program is optional; students may bring their lunches to school. Microwaves are available to heat food, but for no more than 2 minutes. If a student forgets lunch, we have $2 lunches available for purchase. The fee will be added to the student's lunch account and you will receive a balance due slip with the next week's menu.
Menus are sent home with the student weekly on Thursdays to be turned in to the homeroom teacher by Monday morning. A lunch balance slip accompanies the menu of those students who have a balance due or a credit on their account. In the event a student is absent on Monday, they are given until 8:45 am Tuesday to turn in the menu. No additional orders will be accepted throughout the week. Only items on the menu can be ordered. No write-ins, except for condiments.
Payment is to be sent in with the menu. Only cash or checks are accepted. If payment is not sent in, a charge may be placed on the student’s lunch account. The balance must be paid by the next week’s order. There is a $50 cap on lunch balances. Additional orders will not be accepted until the account is made current. All balances must be paid by the end of the school year.
Students who are not here by 9:00 am, and have not notified the office, will have their orders canceled. The balance will be credited to the student’s account.
