The Crow Island PTO has partnered again with Marla’s Lunches for the 2016-17 school year.  These lunches will be offered daily for approximately $5.50 plus tax for grades 1-4 with a variety of new choices as well as vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free options. We will also have ala carte items and rotating “Fun Friday” treats for an additional cost.  This is a great way to support our PTO as well as take a break from packing a lunch.

You can order for the entire session all at one time, order month-to month, or week-to-week, as long as orders are placed by Monday each week at 12 noon for the following week’s lunch orders. You will be able to change, cancel or edit your upcoming order through the weekly lockout as well. If you miss a deadline, then your downside is packing lunch for one week. We will have two ordering sessions during the school year.

Hot Lunch Frequently Asked Questions


Thanks to Marla’s Lunch program, we have eliminated the task of serving out daily lunches & reduced your volunteer shifts to only once a week. When you get to the school, simply tell Marla’s representative which area you would like to work in. (1st & 2nd graders eat downstairs and 3rd & 4th graders eat upstairs). She will be floating between the two lunch areas throughout the lunch period to lend support and help with any questions or lunch issues. You will set up the tables for each lunch shift, organize the lunches according to the teacher & the children will take their lunch with their name on it. Each lunch is individually labeled and packaged with each child’s name and teacher – you are there to help the kids take the correct lunch & have fun!

You will receive a reminder email 3 days prior to your shift.  If you are unable to make the shift please find a replacement and either update the Sign Up Genius or email Stephanie Whitney OR Megan Riley If it is a last minute emergency, or you are running late, please call Sally Badger so she can alert Marla’s representative. We have reduced the volunteer days this year to once a week so please make an effort to make your shift. Also, if Fridays do not fit your schedule, we welcome the help any other day, but please let one of us know so that Marla’s representative can be expecting you.

If you use the SIGN UP Genius calendar function, please make sure that ALL the dates you signed up for get imported.
