Lunch Program

The lunch program operates Monday through Friday.

All lunches must be pre-ordered. No lunches are available "cash and carry".

Our lunch program usually welcomes Virtus trained parent volunteers. This is particularly true on "priority" days when an extra pair of hands makes the lunch service go more smoothly. It is a great opportunity to see your child(ren) during the school day! All volunteers must have proof of Virtus training. Please contact the school office with questions regarding Virtus training. At this time, due to COVID-19, NO volunteers may participate but we look forward to when we can welcome volunteers again!

Signup Genius is used for lunch volunteers. When volunteering can resume, a sign up will be posted here.

Fitzgerald's Supermarket has worked with our school to provide variety and healthy choices with fresh fruits or veggies.
Price of lunch this year is $5.

Due to COVID-19, NO Cash and Carry items will be available. Below is a sample of the type of items that will be available when COVID-19 restrictions can be lifted. When available, Ala Carte items are cash and carry.

Lunch Order Instructions

Lunch orders may only be placed during an "open" order period. During the ordering period, please follow the steps below.

Lunches are ordered one week in advance through the Educonnect Parent Portal. Families are able to see whether or not they have ordered lunch on a specific day whenever they login to Educonnect.

Lunches must be pre-ordered and pre-paid. The portal will be open to accept orders up until the cutoff date. The system will generate the total amount you owe automatically based on your selections. On the advance order page, you will see a sentence that says: Placing an advanced order will charge the purchase to your account.

To place your lunch order, login to the Educonnect Parent Portal with the credentials provided to your family. Click here to access Educonnect. From the main Educonnect page, select Place Advance Lunch Orders.

You will see all the days on the top of the screen that lunch is available. You do need to scroll to the right, by using the scroll bar at the bottom of the screen, if the full set of weekly choices is not displayed. All lunches are prefilled with No Lunch. Each child has their own row for you to select lunches. To select a lunch, simply click the dropdown menu under the date you would like the lunch.

Once all of your selections have been made for the week, click the Submit Orders button at the bottom of the screen.

You can now pay your lunch order balance online on the Educonnect website. While logged into your Educonnect account, click the link “Make Online Lunch Payment” and enter the amount you would like to pay (a small processing fee will be added automatically to each transaction). After you click “Pay Now”, you will be presented with the options of paying with your Pay Pal account, debit or credit card. You may also continue to send in lunch payment checks to the office. Checks should be made payable to St. Mary's School and the memo section should be marked - "lunch pymt week of xx/xx/xx".

If you need to double check on your order because you are not sure what days you have ordered lunch: On the left side of the main page, under Quick Links, you will see Lunch Menu. You can click here to see what lunches are being offered. The Quick Link is for viewing and printing the lunch calendar only. You will need to log in to Educonnect to place your order.

All questions regarding the lunch menu or the ordering process should be directed to Tricia Prausa.
