We have exciting news to share with you regarding the school meal service being provided for your child!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced schools will be able to serve free meals to all children through December 31, 2020.  This unprecedented move will help ensure – no matter what the situation is on-the-ground – children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. It remains critical our children continue to receive safe, healthy, and nutritious food. This will ensure meals are reaching all children so they are fed and ready to learn, even in new and ever-changing learning environments.
Effective Tuesday, September 8, 2020 all students can receive a free breakfasts and free lunches from school.

Students who chose in-person instruction can receive one free breakfast and one free lunch per school day on campus.

Families who chose remote instruction will be able to pick up five (5) free breakfasts and five (5) free lunches each week in the Lyceum parking lot on Monday. Beginning Monday, October 19 pickup will take place from 1-2pm in order to avoid conflicts with on campus food service distribution.
