Until further notice, Sycamore Academy Chino Valley is now offering FREE meals to all students on campus and distance learning.  Students are welcome to get a free Breakfast or Lunch on campus during their regular lunch time.  For our distance learners, you may pick up your meals on Mondays from 12:00-2:00. Please contact Terri Marek if you have any questions (951) 387-9463. 


Breakfast is served Monday through Friday before the start of the school day from 7:30 to 8:10 am.


Lunch is served Monday through Thursday during your student's lunchtime.



Sycamore Academy participates in the National School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program by offering nutritious meals every school day. Students may buy lunch for $3.25 and breakfast for $2.00. Eligible students may receive meals free of charge or at the reduced-price rate of $0.40 for lunch and $0.30 for breakfast. You or your children do not have to be United States citizens to qualify for free or reduced-price meals.


You must fill out a new Free/Reduced Lunch Application each school year to see if you qualify.


Applications are available at our front desk any time throughout the school year or you can use the FRL links above to fill out the FRL application.

We require that families pay upfront for student meal purchases.  This helps our lunch lines move quickly, giving students more time to enjoy their meal.  There are multiple options to make payments to your student’s meal account:


Electronic Payments through My Meal Time


Payments can be made online at

  • Pay online instructions are accessible through the My MealTime Parent Letter
  • A small transaction fee will be accessed


In Person Payments


  • Payments can be made in the Sycamore Academy office front desk before the start of the school day. We accept cash and checks in exact amounts only.
  • We DO NOT accept cash in line during lunch.




If a student takes a meal, they will be charged for it.  We encourage families to have a conversation with their students so that they know whether they can participate in the school meal program.


Sycamore Academy will allow students to charge a negative balance to their lunch account.  Outstanding balances must be paid within 2 weeks.
