As always, breakfast and lunch will be available for all students. We strongly encourage all parents to utilize the MySchoolBucks program to keep cash transactions to a minimum. Any cash used for meal purchases must be in exact change and in an envelope labeled with the student’s name. In addition, the district will comply with all Child Nutrition Plan guidelines.
For information about how meal information will be communicated, visit the Communication/Family and Community Engagement section of our reopening plan.
For students onsite, meals will be provided while maintaining appropriate social distancing between students. Students do not need to wear face coverings when seated and eating so long as they are appropriately socially distanced.
This year, all students will sign up for breakfast and lunch in the morning with their first teacher and meals will be catered to them in their classrooms.
Cafeterias and other congregate spaces will not be used. Instead, students will eat in classrooms. In addition, students will not have access to microwaves or vending machines. Students will be encouraged to perform hand hygiene before and after meals. The sharing of food/beverages will be discouraged.
Families who are in need of healthy breakfasts and lunches for their students during school closure or during voluntary remote learning, including those receiving free and reduced price meals and those experiencing food hardship, may sign up to pick up meals at the high school on Mondays and Wednesdays. To take part, contact Mary Jewell, food services director, at (518) 895-3000, ext. 228.
