Please make sure they enter their first name, middle name, and last name using upper and lower case letters.  It is important that they enter accurate information since we will use this entry for how their name will appear on your diploma and in the graduation program.  Example:  John George Smith, Jr. – not JOHN GEORGE SMITH, JR.  If their name includes a title (suffix) such as Jr., II, or III, remember to include it as well.

  • School Meal Information for 2022-2023: Meal Prices 2022-23 Traditionally RSD have offered a regular priced lunch and a super priced lunch.  CNS have eliminated the super priced lunch and will be charging just one meal price in an effort to keep the serving lines moving. Child Nutrition Services will not be providing cash back at the registers.   Cashiers will be happy to deposit money (cash or checks) into meal accounts for everyone at the register, but we will be unable to provide change for any cash given.   Parents and teachers may use their credit cards and deposit funds into meal accounts on the Myschoolbucks app or website www.myschoolbucks.com.
