Message from the Director

What a year it has been. We have served well over 350,000 curbside meals since March 16! There has been so many unknowns and changes, it is hard to stay up to date. While Nutrition Services has a plan for the 2020-2021 school year, it can change. Be sure to check back on this website for updates.

This year we will be serving meals to remote learners as well as in-person students.  The menu may look a little different, we will be wearing masks, face shields and practicing social distancing, but what remains the same is the delicious foods that we will serve!  There will be a lot of moving parts as we navigate both remote and in-person service. Everyone's flexibility and assistance will be needed and much appreciated!

I am excited to announce Alex Angwenyi, Manager at Bear Creek Elementary, for being honored as our Nutrition Services Employee of the Year!

We look forward to seeing all of you in the fall for the new school year.

Best Regards,

Julie 

More than just a school lunch...


2020-2021 Employee Letters and Work Day Calendars:

WOW! It has been such a remarkable spring and summer. One we will never forget. So many things changing, it is hard to keep up with! I would like to extend a thank you from all of us at the Nutrition Services office. Thank you for your patience, flexibility and dedication to serving our students as we continue to pivot with the changes we are faced with. You are all truly "School Lunch Heroes"!

As we move into the 20-21 school year, things will look a little different. Menus are simplified and focused on student favorites such as pizza and chicken nuggets. We will still offer an array of fresh, wholesome, quality items to the students each day. The method of service will be adjusted to a model that is safe and supportive of all students and staff. This school year, calendar menus will only be posted online on the Nutrition Services webpage. This decision was made in the best interest of the students, staff and the department. Thank you for all that you do to help the district build excellent schools together. We look forward to seeing everyone back this August!
