Interested in Checking out Hot Lunch at American Academy?

Hot Lunch is available to all AA students through DCSD Nutrition Services at both AA campuses. Interested? Here is everything you need to know.



There is no advance ordering. Kids wanting hot lunch will simply pick an entree in their homeroom that they will receive at lunch the same day.


Lunches cost $3.25 for all AA students. All lunches include the Harvest Bar fresh fruits and veggies.



The Nutrition Services AA online menu is now available! Use the new Quick Click on the AA Home Page or click below to view: :

In order to pay for the lunches, please set up an account with the Nutrition Service's payment system, MySchoolBucks. Click on Register/Signup on the left navigation to get started. You will need your student's Infinite Campus ID, which you can get from the IC Parent Portal. Deposit some money into the account and you are good to go!



If you don’t want your child/children to be able to get snacks or a second entree (often called doubles), please email Catrina King (Parker) or Christina Parkerson (Castle Pines campus), the DCSD Kitchen Manager at AA. Please specify the student(s) name and DCSD Student ID number (the 6 digits student Id number used as lunch number that you can find in parent portal) and the choice(s) you are opting out (second/doubles, snack). Snacks and doubles are otherwise available to anyone as long as their cafeteria account has funds or the items are paid cash at the register.
