We were just informed this morning from ODE and USDA that federally reimbursable student meals will be provided to our students at no cost. At this time, the program is expected to last until December 31, 2020 however the USDA may elect to end the program at any time due to a lack of funding. Families are still requested to complete free and reduced meal applications in the event the program is discontinued earlier than anticipated or in preparation for the resumption of the normal school lunch program on January 1, 2021.
Any "extras", a la carte or second meal, that the student wishes to add to their first federally reimbursable lunch will still have a cost associated with it.
Parents who have already loaded meal money onto their student accounts can still use those dollars for extras or when the program is discontinued.
