Myths about free and reduced meals –
Just a little note about what we offer for lunches 😊
As you are probably aware, last year for K-5, we started offering Paw Packs. These are just a healthier version of Lunchables basically. We make them fresh daily as a cold option for students that do not like the hot meal choice for the day. They meet all the requirements for NSLP. They were a huge success last year and hope to continue with that success this coming year. Each morning the students get to choose if they would like a paw pack or hot lunch.
We also started the salad bar/nacho bar last year for 6-12. This went over extremely well and will be continued again this upcoming year. Students will punch in their numbers and decide which line they would like to go through, hot lunch or the salad/nacho bar. Again, this meets all the requirements for NSLP.
Overall, I am very excited about the changes being made in our department and I will continue to work to provide excellent meals for your children. I have an amazing staff that prides themselves in making sure that lunch is an enjoyable experience for the students. If you have any questions or concerns always feel free to contact me.
Have a great summer!
