A reminder that order cutoff dates for Pizza and Subway are 7 days prior to the lunch date and Popcorn orders require 14 days advance.

Returning parents can simply log on, update their teacher/classroom information for each of their children and then order as you did before. New families to Oppenheimer can click on the green icon and follow the step by step instruction to set up an account. Our lunch program provides a break to the parents and offers a nutritious lunch option that the students enjoy. Funds raised from our lunch program goes towards the students by way of enhancing resources for the school. Thank you.
