FREE MEAL INFORMATION as of 9-4-2020
Wow!!! It's been a week. We heard from the State earlier this week and have been trying to figure out how to make everything happen. But long story short...
ALL STUDENTS (Face 2 Face & Virtual) will now be receiving FREE BREAKFAST & LUNCH, ASAP!!!
From the 1st day of school until December 31, 2020 OR until funding runs out. IF there were any students that were charged for meals, I will be refunding that money. Please be patient with me though...this is a manual process, but it will happen. (Any extra items purchased beyond the regular meal will NOT be Free. Ala carte at MS & HS will start back up within the next 2 weeks. Money will be needed for that.)
FUNDING ... for this program will only last thru December 31, 2020, unless depleted sooner. If funding runs out in October, lets say, we will then go back to our normal School guidelines. Meals would be purchased based on your meal benefits, Free - Reduced - Paid. If you have not filled out your Free & Reduced application yet for this year, please make sure you do so. Here is the link for that ... www.lunchapp.com.
PRE-ORDERING ... For all of you that have been pre-ordering your meals for your online/virtual students, no pre-orders necessary, starting September 16, 2020. There will be 1 more pre-order(online/virtual students) for meals for September 9, 2020 though, please check your email for that. Meals will be built on Wednesdays and pick up for those meals will be on Wednesdays from 4:30-6:00pm at Leslie HS. We will be using the BACK parking lot for pick up. I will also be sending out reminders that this will be happening.
START DATE ... Students in school will start receiving any meal they purchase for FREE, ASAP. The meals, that we build on Wednesdays, starting September 16, 2020 (we need to get our feet under us to make this happen) will be for anyone ages 18 and under and they are FREE!! Please don't think that this is only for the students of our district.
PICK-UP ... Pick up for the meals that we are giving away will be on Wednesdays, starting September 16, 2020 at the HS in the back parking lot from 4:30-6:00pm. Please use the driveway that leads to the football field. Signs will be out directing you :-).
MEALS ... We will be making around 300 packages of meals, just like we did for the Summer. These meals will consist of BREAKFAST & LUNCH for 7 DAYS! And just like the Summer...we will be handing them out to whoever chooses to come pick them up! Please remember though...these are for children ages 18 & under. Parents can pick-up meals for their children.
