I would like to extend a warm welcome to the West Islip community
from your school Food Services Department! Our entire Department
looks forward to providing your student(s) with healthy, nutritious
and delicious meals through the 2016-17 school year.
The Food Services Department operates a full-service student
cafeteria in each district school. Every school offers daily lunch
options, as well as various snacks, drinks, and a la carte items for
sale. The High School also offers a daily breakfast. Of note, our
Department and all meals, snacks, and drinks offered continue to be
in compliance with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
Please see below for some basic information about the Food Services
Department. If you have any further questions, please do not
hesitate to contact our office.

customer service and ensure accurate account information.
Students use their student ID number to access their account and
complete transactions. (Student ID numbers remain constant from
kindergarten through graduation). Incoming kindergarten students,
new students, and any other student not familiar with cafeteria
processes will be assisted by staff to ensure an easy, seamless and
positive cafeteria experience.
