Chartwells, our food service company, has informed us that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved our district to offer free breakfast and lunch to our students effective September 10, 2020. Our students will be offered FREE breakfast and lunch regardless of free, reduced or paid lunch status. Chartwells will be refunding all meal charges that may have happened from the first day of school until today (9/16/20) back to the student lunch account (except second meals and a la carte sales). Meals will be FREE until December 31st, 2020. This waiver will expire and on January 1st, 2021 meals will be charged based on status again. No forms or application is required for a student to receive FREE meals during this waiver period. We will continue to charge for second meals and a la carte items such as chips, drinks, cookies, etc. Make sure you are still filling out Free/Reduced applications due to textbook fee benefits.
