Just like our school staff, our cafeteria staff goes above and beyond in delivering hot and healthy meals for our hungry St. Pius X Panthers. An incredibly caring cafeteria staff, some of whom have been a part of the St. Pius X community since their children attended school here, go the extra mile to make sure that lunch is an enjoyable time for all students.


Wellness Policy

The Diocese of Covington and St. Pius X School as part of the Diocese is committed to providing nutritious meals in our schools. Healthy, well-nourished students learn better are more attentive and cause fewer discipline problems. While we realize that schools cannot be expected to shoulder the burden or reversing the trend in childhood obesity on their own, we must do our part to provide a policy and environmental changes support healthier choices for both students and staff. Schools are, after all the place where youth spend a substantial portion of their time. And, given the opportunity, school staff can model healthier lifestyle choices to the students. Wellness Policies make sense, not only for now but also for the future of our children.

This information will be available annually to all parents of students at St. Pius X School.
