School Breakfast and Lunch Program

  • Dear Ross Valley Families,

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  We have some very exciting news regarding the School Lunch Program this year.  The Ross Valley School District, in partnership with the LunchMaster, will be providing both breakfast and lunch for all students free of charge.  

    Please note that you must order the meals for your children by the deadline in order for your child to receive a meal. 
     

    How to Order Meals:

    • Returning students/families, please order your meals here:  www.thelunchmaster.com.  If your student is a 6th Grader at White Hill or has changed school sites, you must change your school code to match the new school, or your child’s meal will be delivered to the wrong school site.
    • If your child is new to the District, please follow the following link to sign up for your meals.
