Lunch Price Increase
Dear Parents and Guardians,
In an effort to keep up with the Federal Equity Pricing Standard, we will be increasing our elementary lunch price; the price will be $0.45 bringing the cost of the lunch meal from $2.55 to $3.00. The increase will take effect on the first day of school, August 25, 2015.
We hope that you continue to support our food service program as the meals are still a great value and in compliance with the Healthy Hunger Free Kids act.
Thank you for your understanding and support.

CA Physical Education Requirement Accountability
Students in grades 1-5, at all four elementary schools in the Martinez Unified School District, actively engage in the California requirement of 200 minutes of Physical Education every 10 days. In order to assure compliance with this legal requirement, each site has established “Prep C” protocols for those grade levels that may not reach the 200 minute requirements due to minimum days, teacher prep, and / or assemblies. These established practices of running laps, dance & movement, and cardio-conditioning outside of the PE class are documented and verified by the site administration on a monthly basis.
