Federal Lunch Changes
Changes in the Federal school lunch program will allow us to provide breakfast and lunch to our students free of charge beginning Tuesday, September 8. This program change is slated to continue until December 31, 2020. If you have a positive balance on your lunch accounts, the funds will remain in place until we begin charging for meals beginning after Christmas break.This is not a retroactive program. Thus, meal charges to accounts through September 3, 2020 are valid and will need to be paid.
As we continue to dive deeper into what has been a great start to school, we will begin to engage in community activities, field trips, and other events as is prudent. When our students have the opportunity to leave our buildings to enter the community, they will be asked to wear masks. Students are not required to engage in these off campus activities. The school will provide disposable masks for the events. However, if a student has a preferred mask of their own, they may wear it. Like any other trips out of the building, parents will be notified in advance and will have the option of choosing to send or not send their child on the activity, field trip, or event. If any questions please feel free to reach out to Superintendent, Angela Lawrence 620-397-2835
