Message from the Director

What a year it has been. We have served well over 300,000 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.

As of right now, school is on target to start on August 17, 2020. There will be required staff development days in August. The where and how are still being worked out. A letter with a schedule explaining everything you ever wanted to know about training and preparations for school will be emailed in mid-July. 

We are very excited for the 2020-2021 school year and to welcome our students back to the cafeteria. The menu may look a little different, we may be wearing masks and socially distancing, but what remains the same is the delicious foods that we will serve!

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

I sincerely hope you had a wonderful, happy and safe summer with your family. 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!
