School Lunches

  • Dear Families,

    Starting August 18th, 2021 the Ross Valley School District will be returning to the National School Lunch Program under the California Department of Education’s Nutritional Service Division.  Although we were happy to offer meals free of charge to parents due to special CARES funds provided by the state during the pandemic, we will now be offering lunches for $5.50 -$6.25 per lunch or $0.40/ $0.00 for those families that qualify for our free and reduced lunch program.   RVSD will be operating the program under the National School Lunch Program guidelines and serving RVSD students ONLY.  Parents will need to order on-line on the LunchMaster website www.thelunchmaster.com by 10 a.m. the weekday prior, or Friday for a Monday meal.  See below to set up an on-line account for your RVSD student(s).

    The LunchMaster is a family run business from the South Bay with many fresh and healthy hot and cold lunch options. 

    In order to receive lunches for your students, you will need to log on to the website and update your existing account or create a new account

    Please go to www.thelunchmaster.com and click on Order Now. 

    Log in and sign into your existing account if you already have an account Note: Please make sure that your student’s school and grade are correct or else your meal may be sent to the wrong school.

    If you do not have an account you will have to set up a new account with your email and password

    Then you will need to add your students and school names using your school codes:

    Brookside: brookside

    Hidden Valley: hiddenvalley

    Manor: manorelementary

    Wade Thomas: wadethomas

    White Hill: whitehillmiddle

    You will need to enter your credit card information and you can also choose to eliminate any food allergens that your child may have.

    After you have done this you will need to refresh and login again in order to order. 

    NOTE:  If you believe that your children may be qualified for the free and reduced lunch program, please contact Jenni Wright at food@rossvalleyschools.org or (415)451-4074 before ordering any meals or you may have to pay full price for the meals as she will have to change your status online. 

    Once you are ready to order please click on the meal option you would like to order for that day.  Then you will need to confirm this option.  NOTE:  If you do not confirm the option it will not be ordered or go through.

    Please note that you will also have to order meals by 10:00am the weekday prior, or Friday at 10:00am for a Monday meal this year as the LunchMaster needs extended time to prepare meals due to the lingering effects of the Pandemic.

    If you don’t have access to order online, please contact me to arrange for alternatives asap.  We want to ensure your child(ren) is/are able to get their meals.  We are here to assist.  Please feel free to call or email me to if you have any additional questions.  Thank you.
