Semester Milk and Lunch Prices

Check can be made out to South Winneshiek.


South Winn school lunch prices are on the rise. 

Each year we evaluate what the lunch price increase should be based on several factors.  Food Prices, Production Costs and State Requirements.

Although we raised our prices by a nickel this past year as well as in the years before, we, according to state regulations, did not increase our weighted average price enough.   So with much regret, we must increase them at the beginning of January 2018 to complete the 2017-2018 school year. 

This is not what we want to do, but with the state requirement, unfortunately we must comply to continue to receive state reimbursement.

Thank you for your understanding.

Prices will go up January 3rd at the start of the 2nd semester.

Price increases area as follows.  PK-5 $2.30, 6-8 $2.40 and HS $2.50per lunch.

Lunch prices are the only meal that will increase, breakfast prices will not go up at this time.

Semester Milk Prices for PK-Elementary are 
3 and 4 Year Old PS - $35 per Semester per student
K-4th - $40 per Semester per student
