PLSD Offers Free Breakfast and Lunch Program to Students During Summ

Would you like breakfast and/or lunch provided for your child or yourself during the summer months?  Then take advantage of the FREE Papillion-La Vista School District summer breakfast and lunch program!   During the summer months, when kids are the most active, it’s important to have the fuel needed for summer activities.  That’s why the Papillion-La Vista School District is offering FREE breakfast and lunch for all children this summer. 

Any child, ages 1-18, can eat a FREE breakfast and lunch June 3- July 24 (closed the week of July 4), Tuesday through Thursday at La Vista West Elementary, located at 7821 Terry Drive, La Vista.  Breakfast will run from 7:45 – 8:45 a.m. and lunch will run from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.  No registration is needed, just show up!  The student breakfast and lunch program is provided by the Summer Food Service Program, a Federal Program designed to meet the nutritional needs of students throughout the summer months. 
            Adults accompanying a child can also eat free through the generous support of The Food Bank of the Heartland.  Breakfast and lunch menus can be found on the Papillion-La Vista School District Web site at  For questions, please contact the Papillion-La Vista Food Service Office at 402-537-6250.

New Buzzer Security System Installed on Front Door
A new buzzer security system has been installed at Bell.  All doors will remain locked.  During the school day parents and guest will have to push the buzzer on the wall and someone from the office will use the intercom system to greet you. The front door will then be unlocked electronically from the office.  By locking the front doors, we are preventing visitors from entering the school without being first identified and appropriately checking in with the front office. Please be patient with us as we maintain a safe environment for students and staff.
