About Monclova's Catering

Services include:

  • Daily nutritional lunch
  • Catering

The mission of Monclova's Catering is to increase student success by providing and promoting a nutritionally balanced diet in a warm and friendly environment.

Each school kitchen has a team of highly trained staff with food safety and customer service as the highest priority.  These team members receive and prepare food, cashier, serve meals, and keep the kitchen clean. Our team is staffed with friendly personnel to answer all of your questions, process payments, and assist with applications.

The Monclova's Catering team work together to develop healthy and appetizing meals for the students, often incorporating ideas gathered from students and parents.  Many of the foods are made from scratch using the best ingredients including low-fat proteins, whole grain pastas, fresh fruits and vegetables.  The menus are analyzed and recipes adjusted to ensure top quality meals.

Choice and variety are important to students, so our menu is planned to provide options.  Each day there are four entree options at all school levels.  A lunch is made up of 5 basic food components: milk, meat or meat alternative, vegetable, fruit, and grain.  Students must select at least 3 of these components for a complete meal (1 of which must be a vegetable or fruit).

We are sensitive to the various nutritional needs of our students.  If your child has an allergy to any food, please contact your school nurse.

In order to better serve you, we have made some changes that we hope will make your life easier.

We want to thank you for the tremendous feedback you have shared with us regarding the lunch program in Arlington.  When we selected a lunch provider, the three things that were most important to us were to provide great tasting food, offer a variety of food choices, and maintain affordability for our parents.  Based on your feedback, Monclova’s Catering has helped us accomplish that.  Two areas that needed improvement were the ordering and accounting processes, and we are excited to announce that we have made changes to those two areas.  Below are a few highlights of the changes that will go into effect starting January 1, 2017.

The Accounting Will Be Handled by PCA

We heard your feedback regarding the payment experiences with Monclova’s Catering. Your payments will now be handled directly through RenWeb and your account will be credited instantly with your online payment.

The Ordering Process Has Been Simplified

You’re in control! Parents will be able to see the week-at-a-glance menu and pre-order meals for their child through RenWeb.  Pre-orders are due by 3:00pm on Friday for the following week.  Forgot to pre-order?  Don’t worry, your child can select from a variety of delicious meal options in the cafeteria.  The cost of the meal can be paid for in cash, or from the available credit in your RenWeb account.

If your student will miss a preordered lunch due to sickness, appointment or school activity, we must be notified by 9am the day of the scheduled lunch in order to receive a refund. Please email Tammy Johnson at tjohnson@pantego.com by 9am with your students name and the date of the missed lunch. We appreciate as much advanced notice as possible. Thank you!

Itemized Invoices by Child

Parents now have the ability to view itemized invoices in RenWeb.  This will allow you to know what your child purchased and when they purchased it.

Automatic Notification of Outstanding Balance

If your lunch account reaches an owed balance of $5.00, you will receive an automatic email notification daily until your account is in good standing. Your child can continue to receive a full meal until the family account balance exceeds an outstanding balance of $10.00.  If you owe $10.00 or more on your account, only the $1.00 bologna sandwich option is available for purchase on account.  Anything else must be paid for by cash or check until you have added sufficient funds to cover additional purchases.

End of Year Accounting

All lunch credits will remain in your Renweb account and roll over to the next school term. If you would prefer your credit balance to be refunded, please send your request by the last Monday of the current school year. Your request must be in writing via email to tjohnson@pantego.com.

 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Tammy Johnson by phone or email.  She can be reached directly at 817.460.3315 ext.1412 or by email, tjohnson@pantego.com

We thank you for your support and appreciate the grace you have shown as we work to enhance the lunch catering service.
