The Covington Latin School Cafeteria follows a standardized menu issued by the Diocesan School Lunch Office.

School lunches are FDA-compliant in offering age-appropriate calorie limits, zero trans fats, fat-free milk, and a broad variety of fruits and vegetables, less sodium and more whole grains. 


Cafeteria Information

Lunch is offered on a daily basis for $3.10. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are available every day in lieu of a main entree. An extra entree (pizza, burger, meatloaf, etc.) purchased with lunch is an additional $1.25. The cost for an entree purchased seperately is $2.10. Lunch is unavailable on examination days, Olympic Day and during the end-of-year picnic. 

CLS also offers ala carte continental breakfast items including low-fat muffins, cereal bars, fresh fruit, fruit snacks, yogurt and milk for purchase from 7:00-7:50 a.m. Ala carte breakfast items are priced from 50¢ - $1.25. Breakfast may not be charged and must be eaten in the cafeteria.

No charges will be allowed for a la carte items or extra items such as an additional sandwich. This includes items purchased before school as well as those purchased during the lunch period. Your student must have sufficient funds in their lunch money account or bring money with them if they wish to purchase a la carte items or extra items.

This applies to full-pay students and those eligible for reduced or free lunches. Those eligible will continue to receive reduced or free lunches -- this "no-charge" policy applies to extra items purchased or a la carte items.

K12 Payment Center

All families are required to open an account for their student/students with K12 Payment Center. Through K12 Payment Center parents are able to view student purchases and account balances. You will have the ability to set up automatic payments and email notifications when funds are low. Parents may also transfer funds between sibling accounts. Click here for more information. 
 
On-line transfers through K12 Payment Center for depositing funds in your student’s account are optional – this option is for your convenience – but ALL families are required to set up an account. Registration for a new account (or adding credit to an existing account) may be done at k12paymentcenter.com. Again, checks or cash will also be accepted. 

Please note online payments are credited to student accounts twice per day, therefore payments made in late morning may not be credited to your student's account in time for lunch that day. Money used for day-of food purchases must be submitted in the Main Office or directly to the cafeteria that morning.
