Nutrition Department

The Nutrition Department is a self-supporting segment of Page Unified School District. We receive no additional funding from the state or district to support our programs. In fact, we contribute a portion of our revenue to the Maintenance and Operation fund of the district.

We view ourselves as a vital partner in the student's educational process. A child that is hungry cannot learn. By providing nutritious meals in a pleasant surrounding and helping to teach students the value of a nutritious meal our programs become a vital part of the educational day.
As part of our Wellness Policy, we have an annual Hygiene Week. The purpose of hygiene week is to help decrease the spread of infectious diseases that are commonly spread, especially around flu season, by educating our students in the area of good hygiene practices. Each day of the week we focus on one topic of the following practices:

  • Hand Washing
  • Coughing, Sneezing, Spitting
  • Dental Hygiene (Brushing, Flossing)
  • Food Safety
  • Handling Dead Animals and Reporting Dead Fowl (Avian Flu)

Nutrition 101

As educators we can make a big difference in the attitudes children form about foods. Modeling and educating about healthy eating habits will help children learn to enjoy trying new foods and create life long healthy eating habits. As we begin to change the nutritional environment at school and in our homes, we will:

  • find new foods that we crave and enjoy,
  • find that nutrient dense foods packed with wide varieties of nutrients will help us live healthier longer lives and
  • replace foods that we once considered our favorites.


It is the goal of the Nutrition 101 training manual to help you realize the true benefits of better nutrition and physical activity and assist you in making changes in your lifestyle that will bring you a longer, happier, and healthier life. Check out the Nutrition 101 manual to learn more about healthy eating habits. You must have Microsoft Power Point to be able to view this presentation. Please be patient as you wait for it to load.

Online Payments

Tired of sending cash with your child every day for their school meals? Page Unified School District now has the ability to accept credit card payments at mySchoolBucks. It is a quick and convenient way to pay for your children's meals and not have to worry about them losing or spending their lunch money on something else. There is no limit to the amount of money you can add. However, convenience does come with a price - a $2.00 service charge per transaction is added to the total bill. That's how the company can provide the service at no charge to our school district.

The website accepts Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover. Page Unified School District still accepts cash or check payments at the school if you prefer not to use your credit card. (Information needed includes name of school your student attends and his/her identification number.)
