Welcome to Coulee Montessori

Coulee Montessori is a charter school of the School District of La Crosse. It is housed at Northside Elementary School located between the Black River and the beautiful bluffs of La Crosse, Wisconsin.

School Meals During Summer

The Summer Food Service Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides free nutritious meals to children during the summer when school meals are typically unavailable. Meals can be eaten outside or taken off-site. Cafeterias will not be open to the public for eating meals.

For sites without a breakfast time indicated, breakfast meals will be handed out at lunch to take out for the following day.

Neighborhood food site location and additional food pick up details:

- All children 18 or younger in the household may receive one breakfast meal and one lunch meal daily, Monday – Friday.
- Parents may pick up meals on behalf of eligible children.
- No identification is required.
