    Food Service FAQs - Food service operations for the 2021-22 school year are quite unique due to the nature of the COVID pandemic. As mentioned in this letter, standard meals for breakfast and lunch shall be at no cost to students as the federal government is directly reimbursing the district. However, as we enter the fall season and for the remainder of the school year, snacks and other a la carte items shall be offered. These items do carry a charge as they do not meet standards imposed by the federal government to be reimbursable. Please refer to this FAQ for further information on this topic among many others, which is also available on our district website.  If you have any questions or concerns on food service, please do not hesitate to contact the Business Office or anyone listed in the FAQ.  We are here to help!
