Nutrition Services is committed to providing a nutritious meal for district children each and every day. Breakfast and lunch will continue to be provided for students during the Fall learning model. All families are encouraged to apply for school meal benefits for the 2020-2021 school year. All families must reapply every year. Families that do not apply for or are not approved for meal benefits can make meal payments at payforit.net. Online payment is highly encouraged to promote speedy, contact-less lunch lines. As a reminder, all lunch account balances were refunded in the Spring, payment is needed for students not approved for free or reduced meal benefits.

School Meals- Learning Pods

Meals will be available in the building for students attending Learning Pods. We will offer a limited variety of a la carte snacks for students to purchase at the Learning Pod locations. Parents can view a la carte purchases made online at payforit.net. Parents have the ability to limit a la carte purchases by reaching out to their school kitchen and putting in a request.

School Meals-  Remote Learning
