Monmouth-Roseville Junior High, Lincoln Early Childhood School, Harding Primary School and Central Intermediate School, Grades K-8th, will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program, which is available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, for School Year 2015-2016.  (Formerly referred to as the Community Eligibility Option).  The CEP program allows qualifying school sites to feed breakfast and lunch to every student in the school free of charge, regardless of household income.

The CEP program does NOT extend to siblings enrolled or attending Monmouth-Roseville High School.  Households are encouraged to submit a current Free/Reduced application each year if they feel their older students may qualify for those benefits.  The automatic 30 day carryover of benefits from the prior school year will expire as of October 2, 2016.  Applications for the 2016-2017 school year will be available at registration or can be downloaded to complete and bring back to the school office.  


M-R High School students must qualify for free/reduced meals either by income, direct certification or shared status by having a sibling who resides at the same address and qualifies for direct certification.  Families sponsoring Foster or Runaway, Migrant or Homeless students need to complete separate paperwork to confirm their status.  Household direct certification status letters will be mailed out by July 30, 2015, to ONLY those families with students to be enrolled in Grades 9-12.

If you feel that you have children who should qualify and have not received a household status letter for students enrolled at Monmouth-Roseville High School by registration, please contact Teresa Allen, Food Service Director at 309-734-3300 or

There is a closed lunch period at the Elementary and Junior High Schools.  Students will either be provided a school lunch or must bring their own, with minor exceptions as established by the building principal.  Each building has separate rules regarding meals brought in to the building.  Please check at registration.

There is an open lunch period at the High School.  SCHOOL LUNCH MEALS AT THE HIGH SCHOOL must be ordered each day in the office before 8:30 a.m.  Students not on the sign- up sheet will have to wait until all other students are fed prior to going through the lunch line.

A student’s CEP or Free/Reduced application status does NOT cover the ALA carte charge of milk purchased with a lunch brought from home.  ALL students MUST have money in their accounts to purchase ALA carte items.  Deposits are taken at the individual school office and credited to a student’s account.  Due to open campus, students in grades 9th-12th will NOT be allowed to negatively charge their account.

Parents should select the MEAL TAB once signed into the Tyler SIS Parent Portal to view theirs student's purchases and deposits to their account, view the monthly menu and make online payments through PayPal. NOTE:  A PayPal account is not required to use this feature, as you can make one-time payments on the PayPal website with a credit card.  After several transactions, PayPal will require you to create an account, and PayPal accounts can be used to pay with your bank account or keep funds on the PayPal account to make instant payments.  

USDA regulations require that special diet requests for students with disabilities are honored.  USDA does NOT require that special dietary requests for non-disabled students are honored.  Monmouth-Roseville C.U.S.D. # 238 attempts to accommodate all special dietary requests that will not require excessive expense or labor to the program.

Monmouth-Roseville C.U.S.D. # 238 Food Service will be operating an Offer versus Serve Program for both breakfast and lunch starting in the 2015-2016 school year at all school sites.  Non-disabled students will be able to pick and choose what they will eat and thus may not require the district dietary form.  The students will be able to avoid foods that may contain food allergens or are not approved for their special dietary needs, and still have the required items for a reimbursable meal.

Check to see if your student’s school is a Peanut Aware school site and ask about the different rules regarding meals/snacks provided from home.
