Message from the Kitchen
We strive to prepare students for learning, by providing nutritious and delicious meals every day. We encourage students to develop, learn, and establish life-long habits for making healthy food choices.
1) Talk quietly so that everyone can enjoy eating in a calm, relaxed atmosphere. No running or horseplay.
2) Follow the directions of the adult supervisor.
3) Always be polite and use good table manners.
4) Leave your place at the table as clean as possible when you are excused.
5) Failure to follow the rules will result in the loss of a privilege.
Somis School, along with the State of California and USDA, is promoting the importance of breakfast. Studies prove our minds work better when we have breakfast. Test scores are higher and attendance is more consistent when children eat breakfast every day.
We are working very hard to make sure all of us at Somis have breakfast. We offer a healthy and delicious breakfast free to all students every day before school consisting of whole grains, fruit, proteins, and milk. Please look at our breakfast menu to see our daily selection. We welcome everyone! Thank you☺
