Free USDA-sponsored meals offered to all children/youth up to age 18 even if not enrolled in WUSD; Order form provided

BACKGROUND

Meals will be offered to all students — both learning in person and those learning virtually.

For the remainder of calendar year 2020, as long as the funding is available from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), meals will be provided at no charge to all children up to age 18 even if not enrolled in WUSD and students enrolled in school if over age 18.

IN PERSON LEARNING DAYS

Elementary (Kindergarten – 5th Grade)

Bus riders will arrive at noon. Students walking to school or being dropped off by a parent/guardian and eating school lunch should arrive at noon (12:00 p.m.).

Students will go to the cafeteria to get their meal and return to their classroom to eat the meal.

Middle School

Students will get their meal from the cafeteria and spread out among the cafeteria, gym, and outside areas (weather dependent).

High School

Students will get their meal from the MPR and spread out in and around the MPR.

VIRTUAL LEARNING DAYS

Kindergarten – 12th Grade

Families will have the opportunity to order to-go meals (breakfast and/or lunch) on a weekly or daily basis. The meals can be picked up between 12:30 and 1:00 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Lakeview – Custodial door at the back of the building near the shed and dumpsters
  • Lincoln – Door #7 (same side of the building as the main office)
  • Washington – Kitchen door in staff parking lot
  • Middle School – Custodial door in circle drive
  • High School – Main door in the circle drive

You may order and pick up meals for one or more days per week. For example, you could order meals and pick them up each day of the week. Or, you could order all meals for the week on Monday, for example. In this situation, you would be receiving all the same meal item.

Meals are only available for pick up on regularly-scheduled school days.

Orders for pick up the following day must be submitted by 10:00 a.m. the day before. For example, when ordering a meal for pick up on Thursday, you must submit your order by 10:00 a.m. Wednesday.

The to-go meals order form for the week of September 21 is available online via the link below:
https://sites.google.com/wwusd.org/wusd-covid-19/food-service


The new order form is posted at the end of each week for the following week.


As a reminder, these meals (breakfast and lunch) are provided at no charge to students, and are available for pick up at each of our five schools between 12:30 and 1:00 p.m. on school days.  These meals are available for all children up to age 18 even if not enrolled in our district and students enrolled in school if over age 18.


Students learning in person and eating breakfast and lunch at school will also receive free meals.


Meals should not be ordered online for students in grades kindergarten through 5 for days they are attending in person.  However, meals should be ordered online for middle and high school students on days they are attending in person for small group instruction.


Orders for pick up the following day must be submitted by 10:00 a.m. the day before.  For example, when ordering a meal for pick up on Thursday, you must submit your order by 10:00 a.m. Wednesday.


Sincerely,
Lisa Griep
Food Service Supervisor


Estimadas Familias:


El formulario de pedido de comidas para la semana del 21 de septiembre está disponible en línea a través del siguiente enlace:
https://sites.google.com/wwusd.org/wusd-covid-19/food-service


El nuevo formulario de pedido se publica al final de cada semana para la semana siguiente.


Como recordatorio, estas comidas (desayuno y almuerzo) son gratuitas para los estudiantes, y están disponibles para ser recogidas en cada una de nuestras cinco escuelas entre las 12:30 y la 1:00 pm en días escolares. Estas comidas están disponibles para todos los niños hasta los 18 años de edad, incluso si no están inscritos en nuestro distrito y también para los estudiantes inscritos en la escuela si son mayores de 18 años.


Los estudiantes que estén aprendiendo en persona y desayunando y almorzando en la escuela también recibirán comidas gratis.


Las comidas no deben ser ordenadas en línea para los estudiantes en los grados de kindergarten a 5º en los días en que asisten en persona.  Sin embargo, las comidas deben ser ordenadas en línea para los estudiantes de la escuela media (middle school) y preparatoria (high school) en los días que asisten en persona para la instrucción de grupos pequeños.


Las órdenes para ser recogidas al día siguiente deben ser sometidas antes de las 10:00 a.m. del día anterior.  Por ejemplo, cuando ordene una comida para ser recogida el jueves, debe entregar su pedido antes de las 10:00 am del miércoles.


Sinceramente,
Lisa Griep
Supervisora de Servicios de Alimentación
