A complete lunch is available for all students in the Hawthorne cafeteria.  All students have a choice of hot and cold selections.  They may also purchase beverages or snacks to accompany lunches brought from home.  The menu is posted on our website. 


Our school district utilizes the POS (Point of Sale) computerized software system.  Each student is assigned a PIN number to be used when making a purchase. Parents have the option of pre-paying into their child’s account with a credit card via the internet at www.mypaymentsplus.com or by check.

If paying by check, checks should be made out to the Mount Pleasant School District and should note the student’s PIN.  Cash is also accepted.


Snack time is set aside in most classrooms.  As this is an important part of your child’s day, you are asked to send in nutritious snacks daily.  This may include fruit, raw vegetables, raisins, etc.

If there is an early dismissal due to weather or any other emergency condition, you will be notified by the automated telephone communication system.  Each family needs to develop an emergency plan for their child to follow in the event of an emergency or if you will not be at home when your child is dismissed.
