    The USDA has extended waivers that will allow schools to serve free meals to all children ages 18 and younger through June 30, 2021.

    Based on the new guidance, we will not charge any students for any meals.

    Food Service Changes

    Food changes that begin on Tuesday, October 13 are outlined below. For questions, please contact your building principal or Lisa Maher, Director of Business Services, at lisa.maher@cusd200.org. 

    **Due to no school on Monday, October 12 for Columbus Day, food service will take place Tuesday - Friday of next week.** 

    Middle School and High School Students Attending In-Person

    As students are being phased in at the middle and high school levels, until you are phased into the in-person learning experience, please continue to access food from our two high schools from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. 

    On days students attend school in-person, students can take a grab and go lunch at school. For food service on the days students are not in school, the following will take place after school on in-person days:

    • Hybrid A students will receive a meal bag on Monday for Tuesday and Wednesday (breakfast and lunch) and Thursday (breakfast), all to be consumed at home.
    • Hybrid A students will receive a meal bag on Thursday for Friday (breakfast and lunch) and Monday (breakfast), all to be consumed at home. 
    • Hybrid B students will receive a meal bag on Tuesday for Wednesday and Thursday (breakfast and lunch) and Friday (breakfast), all to be consumed at home.

    Food Service Reminders

    The USDA has extended waivers that will allow schools to serve free meals to all children ages 18 and younger through Dec. 31, 2020. Based on the new guidance, we will not charge any students for any meals. 

    All elementary students participating in the in-person learning experience will continue with the same food service plan, having the opportunity to receive breakfast and lunch from school. Students who choose to take meals will continue to be given a meal bag as they exit the school at 1:00 p.m. each day. The bag consists of lunch for the current day and breakfast for the following morning so that meals can be eaten at home.
