Community Letter             

Starting this 2023-24 school year, Douglas County School District is excited to announce the participation in the Healthy School Meals for All program for Breakfast and Lunch. All students enrolled at Douglas County School District may participate in the Breakfast* and Lunch at no cost! *Where Available

As in previous years, it's important for households to still provide their household income information when requested via an application. APPLY HERE

While meals will be provided at no cost to all students in participating schools, it's important for Douglas County School District to continue gathering this information in order to receive full access to state and federal funding. Additional funds will go directly to schools to help cover the cost of meals, support after-school activities and other nutritional programs for students. Plus, households who qualify may receive discounted school fees, class materials, bus passes, utilities support and more.

Please contact Susan Babineau, or 303-387-0368 if you have any questions or concerns about the Free and Reduced Lunch Program.

  • Meal Payments: Please ensure your students have money in their lunch account. To add money to their account and set up low balance alerts, please visit MySchoolBucks.

  • Student ID: Students will use their student ID cards to charge meal purchases on their lunch account (where available). If your student forgets their student ID card or their school does not provide cards, students must know their ID number and enter it on the pin pads at the register.

  • More Information: Our online menu system includes allergy information. For more information regarding Nutrition Services, please visit our website. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @dcsdnutritionservices for up to date information. 

  • Lactose Intolerance and Milk Allergies - Douglas County now offers soy milk with school lunches for children who are lactose intolerant or allergic to milk. Silk soy milk is a lactose free non-dairy alternative that offers the same vitamins and minerals as dairy milk 

Food Services

A wide variety of nutritional foods are prepared for the students each day. Complete meals will be available as well as a la carte items during lunch time.

Nutrition Services information charge policy.
1. Students are allowed to charge one lunch.
2. If you cannot pay the charges owed, you must send a lunch from home or apply for reduced lunch.
3. Once the charge has been paid, the student may resume buying lunch.

Anyone needing financial assistance (even for a temporary period) may fill out an application for free or reduced meals. All schools have applications in the office. We also have a volunteer program where you can receive free meals for serving lunch at any of our schools. For more information or for an application, please call at 303-387-0368.


10th, 11th, and 12th grade students may choose to remain on campus or leave campus during lunch time. TRHS is a closed campus school for 9th graders, therefore, 9th grade students must remain at school for lunch. They may purchase a Grizzly-Cafe meal or bring a lunch from home.

Students are to:
1. Properly dispose of litter and garbage into the trash barrels and return tableware to the designated areas.
2. Finish eating in the lunchroom/commons. Food or beverages are not to be taken into the hallways or classrooms.
3. Not exit from the commons serving area doors.
4. Notify the staff supervisor or on duty custodian if they spill food or beverages and participate in the cleanup.
5. Remain in the commons, patio area or main hallway area. Building off-limits areas include lockers, hallways/stairways, unsupervised classrooms/gyms, outside areas including parking lots and athletic fields.
6. Not involve themselves in activities regarded as "horse play or roughhousing" in the commons or in the hallways during lunch or any other time of the school day.

7. Food is not to leave the commons. The throwing of articles, such as food, is strictly forbidden. Frequent abuse of these rules will result in work detail, possible suspension or dismissal from the commons for a semester.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records at this link ( Douglas County School District Transcripts and Records Requests ).
