RSD Lunch Information 

Healthy Habits is thrilled to be back at Riverdale Grade School and Riverdale High School for this rapidly approaching school year.
There is a lot of information about lunch available on the welcoming Message Board at If you are new to orgsonline, please create an account using 213RGSOROR, and check out our offerings! Lunch is served every day at the Grade School and the High School (make sure you choose the right menu) as well as during the Nutritional Break at the High School. There is also an option to automatically order milk for your student every day.
The initial September ordering period will close on Tuesday, August 23rd. We apologize for the short ordering period, but you will be able to continue ordering for September 12th thru September 30th until September 6th. There is more information about the dual closing on the orgsonline Message Board.
Please know how much I am looking forward to this school year and seeing all your students again, AND please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns now or during the school year.
