In high school, food is VERY important. The cafeteria has several options for you to choose from. At every meal, there is always a vegetarian option available, a salad bar, sandwich station, waffle makers, cereal, the hot line, and sometimes the grill. There is a wide variety of beverage options, including a soda machine!
Every effort has been made to create an environment in which students may enjoy socializing and relaxing during meal times. ASMS provides food service everyday school is in session. Meals are to be eaten in the cafeteria. Occasionally, food is provided for take-out. Visitors are required to pay for the cost of their meals.
Behavior and Dress: Proper dress is required in the cafeteria at all times. Students are expected to bus their own trays and clean after themselves. Utensils, dinnerware, trays or glasses will not be taken from the cafeteria. Food is to be consumed in the cafeteria unless permission is given to take food to the courtyard. For these occasions, paper products will be provided. No food is allowed in carpeted areas which include the classrooms.

Special Needs: The cafeteria will cater to any student with special dietary needs. However, a written prescription from the doctor is required to help insure that the special dietary needs are properly met. Such prescriptions must be filed with the nurse before school opens. If a student is ill and needs meals brought to his or her room, a request must be written by the school nurse and presented to the cafeteria manager.
For breakfast, the main line usually contains sausage, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, biscuits, and hash browns. Waffle makers are also available. Lunch usually has a wide variety of foods. Notably, on Wednesdays, the cafeteria usually serves fried chicken, and on Friday it usually serves fish. Sandwiches are always available during lunch if the main line is not to your liking.
Dinner follows closely to the same outline as lunch; dinner offers a slightly wider variety of food. A wall of the cafeteria is dedicated to serving students the right beverages. A cycle of Sweet Tea, Lemonade, and Punch is always available. Milk and chocolate milk are a great choice for breakfast. A coffee maker is supplied.
Food ordered from an off-campus restaurant must be delivered before 8:45 pm Sunday – Thursday and before 11:30 pm on Friday and Saturday. No food delivery is allowed on school days until after 3:30 p.m. Students must wait in the lobby of the Bedsole Center for delivery. Whenever you want to eat something a little different, there are several establishments that deliver to the school. Some options are pizza and Chinese food.
