Dear Families, The new school year is bringing many changes with it, and the school lunch and breakfast programs are not exempt. Despite all the changes, our mission remains the same, to provide the distict's children with the healthiest, safest meals that we possibly can. A hungry child cannot learn , is a bit of a cliche, but it is true.
This year we are going cashless to protect everyone from handling currency. All transactions must be pre-paid. You may place money on a child's account either by using a MySchoolBucks.com payment account, or by sending in a check made payable to the Somers School Lunch Fund. Cash placed in a sealed envelope labeled with your child's name will also be accepted for pre-payments.
Primrose and Intermediate School students will be eating in their classrooms. Teachers will fill out a daily order form, the food service staff will prepare and package the meals, and deliver them to the classrooms.
A bagged breakfast will be available for pickup at the kitchen door each morning at Primrose, SIS, and the Middle School. The High School Breakfast window will be open for service to one child at a time.
Middle and High School students will be eating in the cafeterias on the days that they are physically in school. The serving lines and seating areas have been modified to accomodate social distancing. Extra lunch periods have been added to reduce the number of children present in the lunch rooms. There will be no self-service, and all vending machines have been turned off.
Take Home breakfast and lunch meals will be available for the days when children are remote learning. These meals will be ordered in the morning, and delivered or picked up at the end of the school day.
We are anxious to welcome your children back to school, or to school for the first time.
Please contact me if you have any questions
