How Does My Child Get Breakfast / Lunch?


Breakfast is served daily with no pre ordering needed.  Please stop by the cafeteria for Grab -n- GO breakfast. 

Lunch MUST be pre ordered each day in the homeroom.  Students order lunches by informing their HR teacher, when asked during attendance, if they will need school lunch for the day. Lunch will be delivered to the designated areas assigned per grade level and after the student retrieves lunch, will proceed back to their classroom.   

For the first week of school, lunch will be on hand while students adjust to the morning pre ordering procedure. Also, menus are available on the website and weekly newsletter.


Please email nutrition@theglobeacademy.net with any questions or concerns. We look forward to serving the students this year!
