School Lunch Menu / Program
Lunch menus for the full month are published in advance. Revisions will be posted in the daily "What's for Lunch?" section, when possible.
Due to ongoing sourcing and delivery challenges, it may be necessary to make last minute changes to the daily menu. We will do our best to post changes as they are known. If you have questions, please contact the school at 262-741-4118.

A well-balanced and nutritious lunch is available for all students at Lakeland School. The Hot Lunch Program is typically served family style and allows for quality interaction and the promotion of healthy eating habits and positive manners among all students. The monthly menu is sent home with all students as well as being posted on our website.
Free & Reduced Meals
We welcome all families to apply for free or reduced lunch rates at any time before or during the school year. Application forms for free and reduced meals are mailed prior to the start of the school year and are available from the Food Service Director at any time during the school year. They are processed within 10 days after all necessary information is received.
Please plan to pay for school lunch or send cold lunches with your child until you have returned your application and you have been notified of its approval. Parents are encouraged to send a nutritious lunch. Soda is not permitted as part of the Lunch Program.
Lunch Account Balance Inquiries & Payments
Families are able to view current account balances on the Food Service tab in Skyward Family Access. Quarterly lunch account updates are sent home with students in sealed envelopes. You may request email updates by contacting the Food Service Director at (262) 741-4111 or by email at FoodServiceDirector@lakelandschool-walco.org. Contacting the Food Service Director is also encouraged for lunch account balance inquiries between quarterly statements. Families may make electronic payments online via RevTrak, drop off lunch payments at the school office, send payments with their children, and/or mail payments to the school.
Unpaid Meal Charges Policy
It is the expectation that student meals are paid for in advance. Daily meal costs are posted on the monthly menus which are distributed to all households and can be viewed above.
Quarterly, written statements are sent home with students in sealed envelopes. Phone calls are placed when there is a lack of response to the statements and/or when overages meet or exceed $50, although phone calls may be placed to the parent/guardian when there is any delinquency. The Student & Parent Handbook (PDF), as well as the written statements, provide contact information for lunch account balance inquiries.
If a lunch account becomes delinquent, a good faith payment plan may be offered by the school and may also be requested at any time by the parent/guardian. If a student's account is delinquent and that student has money to purchase a reduced or paid meal on any given day, the student will be provided a school meal. In the event the school has made every effort to contact the parent/guardian and the school has not received communications or payments from the parent/guardian, and if the parent/guardian does not send a cold lunch with their child, although not required by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the school may offer the student a cold lunch in lieu of a hot lunch. Meal charges still apply to an alternate meal.
In the event all above debt collection efforts have failed, Lakeland School of Walworth County, CDEB, reserves the right to file a small claims case/suit in an effort to recover unpaid meal charges.
