School Breakfast Program

Casa Grande Union High School District is committed to ensuring that all of our students start the day with a healthy breakfast. Kids who eat breakfast tend to perform better in school, have better attendance rates, and display fewer behavior problems. We know that morning routines can be hectic and many kids aren’t hungry when they wake up. This is exactly why we provide breakfast every morning in a way that allows all students to participate, even after the bell.

There are many great things about our improved breakfast program. In addition to having access to a nutritious breakfast, eating with classmates every morning creates a community experience, and it takes pressure off parents and caretakers to provide breakfast in the morning. The NO KID HUNGRY starts with Breakfast resource is a great way to find out more about the benefits of breakfast, including how kids who eat breakfast do better in math, miss fewer days of school, and are more likely to graduate high school than their peers who don’t eat breakfast regularly.

Dinner Service


Food Service will now be offering a dinner service for all students. This also includes all sports teams, clubs, or activities after school. Available now we can serve a full dinner and it will be FREE to all students who would like one. We are serving meals in the cafeteria from 3:20 to 4:30 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and will increase as participation grows (if you are running activities on those days and those times in cafeteria, if possible, please set up away from the doors. If not possible set up with to change time food service to change the times). Any after-school sponsors or coaches that are interested in feeding their students and athletes all weeks will have a grab bag option. We would need to know how many students and their names and student IDs participating. We are also available to do pre-game (hot meals) and game day meals (lunch bags). Grab bag meals will be handed out and counted by the supervising instructor or coach. It is required that Tammy Darang is notified of all participants in order to track the number of meals given out. A list of students or a roster of students that will receive those meals, will assist in keeping a accurate count. Please relay the information to your coaches or school staff. If you have any students/athletes, please let Tammy Darang know at ext. 4146 or [email protected].

MySchoolBucks Fee

November 7, 2023

Dear Parent and Guardians,

We have just been informed that MySchoolBucks App will be charging a $2.50 Fall 2023 Program due to rising costs. Beginning next week, some parents in the district will see a Fall 2023 Program Fee of $2.50 at their next transaction made on MySchoolBucks App. This fee will be charged only in connection with the first payment made during November & December 2023.

Like many other businesses, operational costs to deliver the MySchoolBucks platform and related services have increased. The Fall 2023 Program Fee is intended to help offset increased costs while continuing to provide the highest levels of technology, security, and privacy to parents and administrators using our service. The fee also helps to cover increased costs associated with our commitment to providing personal, live customer service to your staff and parents, without the school district incurring any unbudgeted costs.
