On Thursday, March 20, the School Dining System portal which you use to access your student’s food service account was updated to provide a more user friendly interface. With the change, the system has also been re-named Total Access.

These updates are strictly cosmetic in nature and will not alter your use of the site in any way. As always, Total Access may be used to check student balances, change your low balance email settings, update information, and see what your student ate.

If you have any questions, contact the food and nutrition services office at 563/552-3225 or

Healthy Helpings

Last school year, the Dubuque Community School District revised its menus to be in compliance with new meal regulations set forth by the federal Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.

The goal of the changes is to increase the amount of fruits, vegetables and whole grains on school menus while also ensuring age-appropriate calorie ranges – all designed to give students healthier eating options.

School lunches are made up of five components: a meat/meat alternate, bread/grain, fruit, vegetable and a milk. Students are required to take three of these components including one that is a half-cup of fruit or vegetables for the meal to count as an approved “school lunch.”

School breakfasts are made up of four components: an entree which counts as two components, a fruit and a milk. Students are required to take three components for it to qualify as a “school breakfast.” See your school for the breakfast menu.
