Capitan Municipal Schools
To Lead, Educate, and Prepare All Students

We believe that classroom performance improves with a healthy breakfast and lunch each day. We recognize this important connection and provide meals designed to meet the nutrition needs of growing minds and bodies. We offer hot breakfast and lunch options daily, and students are always welcome to bring their own lunch. We require that students  remain on campus during lunch times unless they have written permission to leave.

Applications are available for the federal free and reduced lunch program. Families may qualify for this program at any point during the year as need dictates. If you believe your child qualifies, please complete the application located in the sidebar of this page and bring it to the school office.

Media Release for Free Meals for Standard Schools

The Capitan Municipal Schools announced today its policy to serve nutritious meals every school day under the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, and/or Afterschool Snack Program. Effective July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023, children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals if the household income is less than or equal to the federal guidelines. Please read our Media Release for more information.

We will now have a monthly menu for all gluten free and dairy free breakfast and lunch options available on this page.
