Lunch Pricing for American Academy (prices are subject to change):

Student Meal = $3.75 (one entree, one serving of fruit/veggie, one carton of milk OR a small bottle of water)

*Snack List Pricing

American Academy contracts with Douglas County School District (DCSD) Nutrition Services to bring lunch options to our campuses each school day. Sack lunches are always welcome, but if you and your student prefer, you may choose to purchase a DCSD lunch instead.
DCSD Campus On-Site Managers (*may need to update for 22-23)

AACP - still in the hiring process for new kitchen manager
AALM - Beth Farrar
AAMB - Uma Mohankumar

In order for students to participate in the DCSD lunch program, parents must first create a lunch payment account for each student on MySchoolBucks. The account must be preloaded with money (a credit card is required). Once their lunch payment account set-up is complete, students may purchase a DCSD lunch on any school day. Students will need to know their six-digit DCSD Student Number (different from the American Academy Family/Carpool ID Number), which can be found in your Infinite Campus parent account in the upper left corner next to the student picture.

Manage Lunch with Nutrislice app

American Academy contracts with DCSD to bring healthy, delicious lunch options to our students at school each day. Lunch menus and nutritional information have always been available online, but now there’s an easier way to look — the Nutrislice app! 
Grab the Nutrislice app to easily view lunch menu items at your campus on any given day. View nutritional information and food allergy warnings and sort the daily menu by food preferences or dietary needs to see what students can eat. You can even rate the menu items to give DCSD Nutrition Services feedback!

Opt-Out for DCSD a la Carte Lunch Items

DCSD provides a number of a la carte lunch options for students to choose while they are moving through the lunch line. If you’d prefer to NOT allow your student to buy any of those a la carte items, you can just say “no!” Download the DCSD No Seconds opt-out form, complete and print, and turn into your campus front office. We will pass it along to the DCSD lunch staff and it will be noted in your student’s DCSD lunch account.

Financial Assistance

DCSD provides lunch assistance (Free and Reduced Lunch or FRL) to interested and qualified American Academy K-8 families. To apply, please complete the online DCSD application. The application typically opens mid-July for the next school year. If qualified for lunch assistance, families will be notified by DCSD with a confirmation letter, which must then be given to the American Academy Business Services Assistant at your campus (see the list below).
  • Interested families must apply for lunch assistance every school year, even if previously qualified.
