    Dear Ross Valley Families,

    Welcome to the 2023-2024 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 (served during the morning recess/break) and lunch for all students free of charge.  You or your children do not have to be a U.S. citizen to qualify for free meals.  

    Please note that you must order the meals for your children on the LunchMaster website by 9 am on Tuesday for the entire following (next) week in order for your child to receive a meal.   

    How to Order Meals:

    • Please order your student's meals here:
    • If your child is new to RVSD, the school codes are as follows: 
      • Brookside: brookside
      • Hidden Valley: hiddenvalley
      • Manor: manorelementary
      • Wade Thomas: wadethomas
      • White Hill: whitehillmiddle
        • For 6th graders who were in an RVSD school last year in 5th grade, please remember to change your school code to whitehillmiddle or your child’s meal will be delivered to the wrong school.
