School meals will continue to be available to all students, including those attending school in-person and those learning remotely.
For information about how meal information will be communicated, visit the Communication/Family and Community Engagement section of our reopening plan.
The district will ensure social distancing between individuals while eating in the school cafeteria. If not feasible, meals may be served in alternate areas (e.g., classrooms) or in staggered meal periods to ensure social distancing and proper cleaning and disinfection between students.
Students do not need to wear face coverings when seated and eating as long as they are appropriately socially distanced.
The sharing of food and beverages (e.g., buffet style meals, snacks) is prohibited, unless individuals are members of the same household. Adequate space will be reserved for students, faculty, and staff to observe social distancing while eating meals.
For meals that will be served in classrooms, meals will be delivered to classrooms in a sealed container. Each meal will contain all of the components of a Type A lunch. The components of the meal that do not fit in the container will be delivered separately with the meal.
Each student will be required to wash their hands prior to the beginning of meal service and after the meal has been consumed. Handwashing posters will be displayed in each classroom.
A classroom list of rules for meal service will also be posted in each classroom. For example, handwashing procedures, no sharing of food or drinks, social distancing, disinfecting of desks after meals, etc.
Each student with an allergy will be entered into the foodservice database. A report for each classroom will be generated and sent to each classroom to be utilized for meal service.
Meals will be distributed for students that are learning remotely by either delivery or a pickup location that will be announced.
