A nutritious morning and afternoon snack is provided for all students; however, parents may opt to provide alternate snack options for their child if they choose. The Kindle School in the Heights, Inc. does not provide lunch for our students, and we are not able to heat or prepare meals. Parents are required to provide lunch for students and may purchase lunch for their child through our catered lunch program, LunchDirect. Information and the link to our catered food program Lunch Direct can be accessed through the Lunch Direct website.
