An important message for MCPS families
Manassas City Schools will waive the school meal charge limit beginning Monday, January 14, 2019, to ensure students have access to meals they may need in an effort to support families affected by the federal government shutdown. MCPS will allow school meal balances to accrue for the duration of the shutdown.
The decision further supports the current policy of the School Board of the City of Manassas that states all students are offered a breakfast & lunch meal daily regardless of their ability to pay for the meal.

School Breakfast and Lunch Menus
Manassas City Public Schools is actively working to increase the usability of our websites for all visitors, which includes the removal of “portable document format” (PDF) files that do not comply with ADA accessibility standards and guidelines.
This process affects the monthly breakfast and lunch menus posted on all MCPS websites. The menu options are now available through an online calendar and the MCPS app. Printed menus are available at the schools in the main offices. Thank you for your patience as we complete the conversion process.
