Food Service

  • Food Service Update

    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 distribution plans are outlined below. For questions, please contact your building principal or Lisa Maher, Director of Business Services, at


    Food Service Changes for Middle and High Schools

    With the move to remote learning for middle and high schools comes changes in our food distribution plans. ALL students and families can receive a meal bag at no charge. Parents/guardians may pick up meal bags for their children. Meal bags distributed on Mondays will contain meals (breakfast and lunch) for three days. Meal bags distributed on Thursdays will contain meals (breakfast and lunch) for two days.

    Food Service Reminders

    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.
