Elementary Students – If your elementary student is returning to full-time in-person learning either on January 19th (grades K-3) or February 2nd (grades 4-5), they will receive free breakfast and lunch daily while at school. They will also be sent home with a weekend meal pack on Friday afternoons, unless you opt-out of receiving the meal pack by informing their teacher. You do not need to pre-order or sign up for meals. We will be providing weekend meal packs at least through the end of February, possibly longer.
Connected Learning – If your secondary student or grade 4-5 elementary student (until February 2nd) is attending in-person learning one day a week, they will continue to receive free breakfast and lunch while they are at school and will be sent home with a 4-day pack of meals for their distance learning days. If you would like to receive a weekend meal pack for your student, you may sign up weekly on the Meal Order Form and pick up the weekend meal pack at one of our school sites each Friday. Additional information can be found in the meal order form. We will be providing weekend meal packs at least through the end of February, possibly longer.
