The Dardanelle School District is pleased to announce that breakfasts and lunches will be served to all students at NO CHARGE during the 2021 - 2022 school year.
It is not necessary to complete a meal application for free or reduced priced meals as The United States Department of Agriculture has extended meal benefits to all students at this time. For households who wish to complete a meal application, they are available at or at any of the schools.
These meal benefits do not include a la carte items sold in the cafeteria. If students wish to purchase items a la carte, they will need to have money for those purchases.
All adults, e.g., visitors, teachers, support staff members, and administrators of the district must assume the full cost of the meal which is $2.00 for Breakfast and $4.00 for Lunch.

Visitors are always welcome at Dardanelle Public Schools and you are certainly welcome to enjoy lunch with your child but food brought from an outside source can only be shared with your student. Adult meals can also be purchased from the cafeteria at the rate indicated above.


Our cafeterias follow dietary restrictions and modifications due to documented medical illnesses/issues/allergies as noted by a medical doctor in accordance with USDA guidelines. Your school nurse will need to be your first point of contact to ensure these needs are met.
