Hello and welcome back!

Welcome back to another school year!  I am looking forward to providing your child(ren) with more nutritious meals this new school year!  Let me provide you with some information and feel free to ask me any questions that come to mind!

 I am excited to share that we have successfully implemented Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC) here at Desert Oasis.  This program has been a huge success; it allows the learners to eat breakfast with their classmates in the classroom.  Breakfast is served every day during our soft start hours from 7:20 a.m. – 7:45 a.m.; Breakfast is $1.00 or $.40 for Reduced Breakfast.  The benefits of BIC are that students have easier access to the most important meal of the day; which provides them the fuel they need to have better concentration and performance in the classroom.  * Please note that if you do not want your child to participate, they do not have to eat the school breakfast provided.  Let the cafeteria or the teacher know that you do not want your child to participate.

I want to assure you that we are working as quickly as possible to process all applications for free and reduced meals.  If your child was approved for free or reduced meals for the 2016-2017 school year, and you wish for them to continue to receive those benefits you must reapply by September 20, 2017It can take up to 10 business days to process an application from the time that we receive it.  If you have submitted an application and have not yet received a benefit letter, it is your responsibility to ensure that your child has lunch money or a sack lunch until you are notified about your benefits.

 Our lunch prices are increasing this year for paid students to $2.65.  If your child has a negative account, I encourage you to keep it current by simply signing up to pay online at (apple and android apps are available for download).  A $2.00 Convenience fee will apply to all monies added online.  If you would like to pay by check; please, make them payable to NUSD.  Meal reminders are sent out weekly, be sure to check your child(ren)’s backpacks and check your emails as well.  Our meal prices are as follows for breakfast $1.00, for reduced breakfast $.30, for lunch $2.65, for reduced lunch $.40, and for milk $.25 daily. 

Did your kiddos forget their school menus in their desks?  Don’t worry they are available online at .  We now have a new Facebook page to keep you up to date with any events just click .  Please feel free to come talk to me as I would love to get to know each and every one of you!  Thank you for taking time to come by the cafeteria.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at 623-556-5886 or at

Kind Regards,
