|Meals||Grades PreK-5||Grades 6-12||Adults|
Christina School District is excited to announce that beginning on January 9, we will offer menu items that include halal-certified and halal-suitable meal options for our students at the following schools: Gallaher Elementary, Marshall Elementary, Kirk Middle School, Middle School Honors Academy at CHS, and Christiana High School.
In preparation for the launch of the new Halal meal options, we are asking parents to let us know if their child(ren) may be interested in participating by completing the Halal Meal Options Interest Form. Students can request Halal-approved entrees upon entering the serving line.
For students who attend the schools mentioned above, a separate halal menu will be available so that students and parents know exactly what meal options are available every month. Click here to view the January 2023 Halal Breakfast and Lunch Menu.
Halal is Arabic for permissible. For meat to be considered Halal, the animal from which the meat is sourced must have been prepared and handled according to Islamic dietary guidelines.
If you have any questions, please contact our Child Nutrition Services department at email@example.com or (302) 454-2400, ext. 43200.

For students returning for in-person instruction who have food allergies, it is extremely important that you notify your school nurse and provide necessary documentation before their return to school.
