2020 Lunch Information at a Glance
All K-6 students will be eating in their classrooms this year. HOT lunches will be served daily. We purchased a sealer that will make our meals look like a “TV” dinner. The cooks will place the hot meal in the tray and then seal it. They will be delivered to each classroom. Students will be served all components of the meal. Remember if your child has a food allergy, please let us know so we can make accommodations. This year K-6 will receive free breakfast in the classroom.
All 7-12 grade students will all meet in the multi-purpose for their designated mealtime. They will receive a “plated” meal. Meaning they may choose the items they wish to eat, but the cooks will be plating the entire meal. All students will still need to take the minimum components of the meal when going through the lunch line. Students will be able to be served the first 10 minutes of their mealtime. Students will have an assigned seat. They will choose their seat the first day of school and may change seats the first school day of each month. We encourage students to take hot lunch or bring cold lunch from home. Students will wear masks in the lunchroom, except while sitting and eating. Students will be given time to go outside, or a designated classroom, after mealtime. Cold lunch students that need to microwave items may do so. The microwave will be sanitized between usage. We will not be providing plates, napkins, or silverware for cold lunch students this year.
The following is a list of breakfast and lunch prices for the 2020-2021 school year. Payment can be made in the elementary classrooms or the High School Office before school begins or at lunch time. We encourage parents to pay for milk and meals on Mondays, so staff are only handling money/checks one time per week. This year K-6 cold lunch students will need to pay for their milk for the week on Mondays. Currently, there are no seconds for K-6. When we have the delivery process down, we may change this, but for now we are working on making sure everyone gets a hot meal in a timely fashion. Please log on to your child’s Meal Magic account to check account balances. It allows the parent/guardian to see when the child is eating and the balance on the account. Online payments can be made at <https://www.sendmoneyto school.com>
Meals for Virtual Learning Program: If your child will be participating in the virtual learning program this year, your child/ren can still receive school meals. Please sign your child/ren up to receive breakfast, lunch or both. Meals will be pre-packaged for five days (days school is in session). Pick up will be Monday’s (or first in-session weekday) from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Regular meals charges will apply. We encourage parents to apply for free and reduced priced meals online, or by visiting one of the school offices. If you wish to sign your child/ren up, please contract Tracy Rye at 647-6285 ext. 2203.
