Meals for Students Returning to In-Person Learning
Starting February 18: In-Person Meals Information
All students attending in-person classes will receive a free breakfast and lunch to take home each day upon dismissal. Please complete the meal survey in Skyward Family Access to indicate the type of meals that you prefer your student to receive, or if you want to opt-out of receiving free meals. Instructions for completing the survey can be found here | Español. If you do not complete the survey, your in-person student will automatically receive a main entrée meal (may contain meat) upon dismissal.
The survey will remain open for the remainder of the school year and you can change your response at any time (please allow 1-2 days for any changes to take effect).
Please help us remind students that the meals need to be taken home and should not be eaten at school or on the school bus!
Who should fill out this survey?
This survey form is for current in-person learning students only. Filling out this survey and electing to receive meals through this form will provide your student with one free breakfast and one free lunch to take home after school each day through the end of the school year (you only need to fill out this survey once).
Can I still receive meals for the weekend and Wednesday?
Additional meal bags (for days that students don’t attend in person classes and weekends) can be ordered on the LWSD website and can be picked up on Wednesdays from our six middle school “Grab and Go” locations or 11 bus stop locations. Wednesday meal bags will include three lunches and three breakfasts for in-person students unless otherwise indicated when ordering online.
Why will my student be receiving a free meal?
As many of you may be aware, LWSD is currently operating its nutrition services program under several nationwide waivers put forth by the USDA. These waivers allow all children (ages 1-18) in the community to receive FREE meals through our program. Students are eligible to receive 14 meals weekly (seven breakfast and seven lunches). Nutrition services is committed to providing meals to all eligible children whether they are attending in person classes or in a remote learning model.
Meals will be provided daily to in-person students and consists of a breakfast and a lunch. Each meal meets USDA requirements and our weekly menu offers a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and milk to complete the daily requirements. Meals will be delivered daily to the elementary school locations, where students will be given their meals (both breakfast and lunch) at the end of the day (sack lunch style), as they leave for home. Meals must be consumed at home and not at school or on the school bus.
What if I change my mind and want to modify my election?
You may revisit the survey at any time to change your meal selections and opt-in/out (please allow 1-2 days for any changes to take effect). Keep in mind you do not need to order daily for your in person learning student. Your elections made in this survey will allow your student to continue receiving (or not) a breakfast and lunch when in person through the end of the school year unless you revisit this page to change your elections via the survey.
