ISB offers comprehensive student support services to help keep our students – and their families – safe, healthy and happy.
ISB Lunch Program
Students may bring a box lunch to school or sign up for ISB’s Lunch Service, which includes the following options:
- Two days (Tuesday and Thursday)
- Three days (Monday, Wednesday and Friday)
- Full week (Monday through Friday)
Our caterer, Season to Taste, provides a home-style hot lunch and specializes in using ingredients that are responsibly sourced, seasonal, and high quality, while minimizing environmental impact. ISB lunches do not use ingredients containing tree nuts or peanuts. Pork will not be served. Please check the Portal for lunch pricing and sample menus.
ISB manages a dedicated bus service that travels from the Longwood Medical area, Back Bay, Beacon Hill and Charlestown to our Cambridge and Arlington campuses.
- The bus service fee is based on the number of children participating.
- Bus routes and bus sizes are re-evaluated each school year, based on need.
Students in grades 1 through 8, residing in the City of Cambridge, may use the Cambridge Public School Bus. ISB also provides discounted Charlie Cards for students age 12 and older.
We make every effort to provide a safe and healthy environment for all students.
