Meal Protocol

When students are in school, meals, snacks, and beverages will be individually packaged or will be served directly to students.

Per state and federal guidelines, meals must be contactless. This means that students will not be able to self-serve any food items, so food and beverages will be served to students. Food and Nutrition Services staff will wear face coverings and gloves.

Students will be able to purchase a second entrees. A limited number of ala carte items may be available for purchase at the Middle and High School based on the learning model and location of meals. These items will be served directly to students.

Students will provide the cashiers with their PIN number and/or name and the Cashier will either enter the student PIN numbers for them or scan the barcode with the student’s name attached to it in order to account for the meal served.
