Lunch at bca
Our food services manager strives to provide a variety of food choices to include servings of fruits and vegetables, along with items that children are familiar with and enjoy.
Students in kindergarten - eighth grade may purchase lunches on their account through Headmaster Online ($80 for 20 lunches or $40 for 10 lunches - $4 per daily lunch). Students who prefer to bring their lunch are welcome to do so.
Lunch is included year-round in weekly tuition for infants - PK4.
Parents are asked to upload funds on their family's Headmaster Online account. However, if families prefer to send in money to purchase cafeteria items, they may do so by putting a check or cash in an envelope that is available in the cafeteria. Please put the envelope in the black box that is next to the cafeteria door labeled with your child's name.
One beverage is included with lunch, with choices of white, chocolate or vanilla-flavored 2% milk, or orange juice. Water is always offered as well.
Milk purchases on the account are $10 (20 milks) or $5 (10 milks).
Ice cream purchases are $20 (20 ice creams) or $10 (10 ice creams). Children are generally allowed to purchase one ice cream per week and must have eaten most of their lunch to do so. The opportunity to have ice cream is at the teacher's discretion.
For the 2020-2021 school year, children will eat lunch in their classroom due to COVID-19 guidelines. Lunch is still available for purchase, but delivered to rooms instead of having students eat in the cafeteria.
When lunch resumes in the cafeteria:
While BCA allows children to bring in items that have peanuts, we do provide a table for students who have peanut allergies to ensure that they avoid this allergen. Parents are asked to provide information on any type of food allergy on their child's medical emergency form.
Parents are always welcome to join their child for lunch, but we ask that you please not bring in food from a restaurant. Please bring in food from home, packed in a lunch box.
(Lunch and two snacks (morning and afternoon) are included in the tuition for children in our infant - PK4 program.)
Each grade level receives a 30-minute lunch period.

We ask that parents not bring in lunches from restaurants. Parents are always welcome to join their child for lunch, but allow them to eat their food from home or the cafeteria meal provided for the day.
