Eagles' Nest Cafe



  • Excel Academy offers district provided hot lunches for $2.95 for Grades K-5 and $3.45 for grades 6-8.
  • Excel participates in the Federal Government’s Free and Reduced Lunch Program for qualifying families. 
  • Excel does not prepare hot lunches. Lunches must be ordered from the district prior to any given month.
  • Every student is sent home with a lunch order from between the first and second week of each month.
  • The lunch forms are usually due by the end of the second or third week of the former month.
  •  Every student who orders a hot lunch must return the form by the due date posted on the menu.
  • One order form per student.
  • Students who qualify for free or reduced lunches MUST TURN IN A LUNCH ORDER EVERY MONTH.
  •  Families may send one payment for multiple lunch order forms. Please go to the MyPaymentsPlus at: MyPaymentsPlus.com
  • Please include your child’s/children’s names on the memo section of your check. If you are paying by cash, put it in an envelope with the family name on the outside. We no longer can accept credit cards for payment, as they go through Jeffco Food Services, not Excel.
  • Since the school must order lunches in advance and are charged regardless of the lunch being served, WE CANNOT GIVE CREDIT FOR MISSED LUNCHES.
  • If you have a student who will not be getting their lunch, (child is ill, on a field study, etc.), the lunch may be transferred to a sibling as long as the cafeteria Manager has been notified in advance by a parent.
  • Every effort will be made to notify parents of field studies in advance of the lunch menu coming home.
  •  Any student who forgets to bring a lunch from home may be able to receive a lunch IF there is an extra one that an absent child does not receive.
  • Please alert the Cafeteria Manager of any food allergies that your child has.
  • All students MUST have a fruit or vegetable on their tray for lunch.
  • Parents are always welcome to come have lunch with their child, or better yet, volunteer in the cafeteria!!
  • If you have any questions, please call the Cafeteria Manager, Melissa Utechte at 303-467-2295 ext. 300 or email her at:Melissa.Utechte@jeffco.k12.co.us
