Lunch @FHS

Frederick High offers breakfast and lunch for all students. Due to the population at Frederick High, there are two lunch periods built into the school day, and each is based on a student’s third class of the day:

  • Students have first lunch from 11:00 AM to 11:30 AM if their third class is English, Social Studies, or Fine and Performing Arts (which are found in the downstairs D, downstairs E, and C halls).
  • Students have second lunch from 12:30 AM to 1:00 PM if their third class is Math, Science, or Physical Education (which are found in the upstairs D, upstairs E, and B halls).
  • Students with an off-block for their third period of the day have time off over both lunches.

Eating On Campus

All students also have the choice of one free meal a day, whether that is breakfast or lunch.

Eating Off Campus

Freshmen aren’t allowed to go off campus for lunch. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors have the option of going off campus for lunch if their parents sign a permission waiver that can be found in the front office.

Within Walking Distance

As Frederick High is in a less-developed part of town, there aren’t many off-campus locations within a reasonable walking distance (ten minutes to walk there, ten minutes to order and eat, and ten minutes to walk back).

If You Can Drive

There are a few more lunch locations within a ten-minute driving distance, assuming you can park, order, and eat with your remaining ten minutes:

If You Have an Off-Block

Students going off campus for lunch have traditionally found that the best food options aren’t within that ten-minute radius, so many use a 90-minute off-block for lunch to go further away from campus to Longmont, Erie, Fort Lupton, Northglenn, or Westminster. This time frame opens up dozens of restaurants as options, but here are the most affordable and most popular among students within a 25-minute driving radius:
