This year twenty-four schools in the Bellevue School District took part in the annual “Cafeteria Challenge” sponsored by the City of Bellevue, Bellevue School District and Bellevue Utilities. Schools competed to produce the least amount of trash sent to landfill, as opposed to recycling or compost. After weighing everything in, Puesta del Sol won the big prize, reducing waste to just 1.77 grams per student – the same weight as a paperclip!Read More

This year the district has been exploring options to improve the elementary lunch period, including ongoing work with our parents on this topic.
Students need sufficient time to eat a healthy lunch. As our schools have grown in size, we have found that some students are spending the bulk of their lunch period moving through the lunch line, leaving little time to eat their lunch. We are working on some short and long term solutions to address this concern.
The Nutrition Services Department is pleased to bring new school meal menu options to families this school year. The My School Menus™ mobile app allows parents and students to access menus and nutrition information for the school meal program directly from their smart phones and tablets.
