Blended Schedule Request

As part of our Restart/Reset plan, our district would like to be prepared in the event we must move to a blended schedule this school year. At this time we are not intending to move to this model, nor do we foresee this in the near future. However, we would like to be prepared and would like to provide you the opportunity to prepare for this possibility.

Free Breakfast and Lunch for ALL Students

Our district has received wonderful news from The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Services.  Beginning tomorrow, Monday, September 14, our school district will be able to serve free lunch to all students attending school physically under Option One regardless of their free/reduced lunch status. The USDA is making the program available until December 31, 2020 or until the funding runs out, whichever comes first.  It is recommended that families still complete the free/reduced meal application so that the service will continue in January 2021 for your child or children if they qualify.  Qualifying applications not only provide cost savings to our families, but they also provide funding and opportunities for our district.  If you have questions regarding this opportunity or meal applications, please contact our Food Service Director, Mrs. Dorothy Balzer.  We are very excited to be able to provide this opportunity for our students.

Please take time to review the full reopening plan for our school district. You will notice that each section includes the roles of EVERYONE involved as this truly needs to be a team effort. At the conclusion of the plan, you will find the information about our online learning option, as well as, the application for parents/guardians to complete if interested in choosing that option. We have already started reviewing survey responses from those who participated in our parent/guardian survey. Your feedback is important! As we work through these difficult and ever-changing times, we know that not everyone will agree with decisions that our made. We greatly appreciate your support, cooperation, and flexibility.
