New online menus for Arcadia Valley R-II Schools

Starting today, February 1, parents and students at Arcadia Valley School District may view new online school menus.

The nutrition program, managed by OPAA! Food Management, has just launched an interactive menu tool that provides greater insight and information about the menus.

OPAA! has partnered with Nutrislice, whose web site and free smartphone app are powering the updated Arcadia Valley School District menus.

The website, av2.nutrislice.com, lets parents and students view pictures, descriptions, nutritional information, special diet filters, and get carb counts for each day’s menu.  You can also access menus via the free mobile app available on the iTunes App Store for iPhone users or on Google Play for Android-powered smartphones.
