School Lunch

Students at Plato Academy Clearwater have the option of enjoying a hot lunch at school for any day or days you choose. To purchase a school lunch, open an account through My School Bucks, accessible in the button below. In order to purchase a lunch, funds must be deposited in the account a day prior to the purchase. Funds can be deposited for future use throughout the year.

To participate in the free and reduced lunch program, please apply by following the directions in the My School Apps link:

Each year, families will need to reapply for the free and reduced lunch program as accounts will not carry over from the previous year.

Breakfast Menu

Lunch Menu

Nutritious hot lunches are provided daily in Plato Academy’s cafeteria. Students may also bring their own lunch. A monthly calendar is posted to the website on the preceding month containing the menu for the following month. Parents are welcomed to eat lunch with their child.

You must set up an account with My School Bucks to pre-pay for lunches. If there is no money in the account, we cannot provide lunch for your child. You may access the website at
In order for our caterer to better plan and prepare for student lunches, we encourage parents to purchase lunches monthly or weekly in advance. Parents are expected to select the days they want the school to provide lunch. Breakfast is free for all Pinellas County students. The child must place a breakfast order the day before it is needed.

Our vision: The Plato Academy Schools family empowers all learners to exceed expectations!

The mission of Plato Academy Charter Schools is to assist students in achieving their full potential by requiring and nurturing high academic and behavioral standards in a safe, supporting, challenging and enthusiastic environment fostered by a commitment and cooperative effort between the school, students, parents, and community.

Plato Academy Schools are all fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and schools as managed by AdvancED. SACS provides nationally recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet SACS CASI’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
