Breakfast and Lunch Meal Service
Beginning Tuesday, August 4, breakfast and lunch meal service will be available through drive-thru curbside pickup for all enrolled students. For El Mirage Elementary School, pickup is available Monday through Friday from 10:45 to 11:45 AM. 

Meal prices are based on your student’s current free/reduced/paid eligibility. SchoolCafe.com can be used to manage your student’s lunch account and add funds, when needed. Please view full details about eligibility and pricing on our website at Dysart.org/BackToSchool.

Per Federal regulation, only parents or legal guardians are permitted to pick up meals for their student(s). Students do not need to be present. At pickup, nutrition service staff will ask for the student ID card, or student name and ID number. 

We ask that you complete a new free and reduced lunch application for the 20-21 school year at SchoolCafe.com at your earliest convenience. If needed, paper applications are also available at each school.

Please visit www.schoolcafe.com with your student's ID# and complete one application for each household.

Please make sure you include everyone living in your household, even if they are not a Dysart student to report an accurate household size. Personal information on the application is not shared with anyone outside of the Nutrition Services Department. 

Our goal is to receive an application for every household by August 4th, 2020!
Nutrition Services is providing 10 iPads and 10 bicycles as giveaways! Every student that we receive an application for will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win an iPad or bicycle!

Good afternoon Dysart parents and guardians, 

In order to prevent outbreaks of vaccine preventable disease, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends continuing to vaccinate, while following social distancing and cleaning measures. We wanted to share an opportunity that is being provided locally by the Maricopa County Department of Public Health to ensure our students are protected from vaccine preventable diseases and ready to start school when school resumes. Vaccinations are FREE, and all children from preschool through 12th grade are invited. Families with or without insurance and those on AHCCCS are welcome to attend.

Maricopa County Department of Public Health Immunization Clinic:
Wednesday, July 22, 2020
8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. 
Freedom Traditional Academy, 16066 N Parkview Place, Surprise, AZ 85374

Families attending will be asked to:
Bring their own pen;
Wear a mask, if possible;
Bring the immunization record for the person being vaccinated;
Bring the insurance card, if available; and 
Complete the consent form prior to visit, if possible.

In order to ensure safety at the clinic, the following practices will be in place:
  • Will practice social distancing and monitoring the amount of people in the building at one time
  • Are asking only the person/s needing vaccine and or only one parent or guardian to accompany children. Everyone else is asked to remain outside of the building while practicing social distancing.
  • Ask families to maintain social distancing while waiting
  • Will clean the area and items between families
  • Are asking families to avoid coming to the immunization clinic when you or your child is sick with COVID-19 symptoms, which may include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.
