And now for District News:
For elementary families only: The United States Department of Agriculture has granted free breakfast and lunch for K-12 students until June, 2022. P-CCS began the year with the option for families to opt out of getting the daily breakfast bag to take home. We have heard from parents that they would prefer to opt in for this option. Sometimes bags are not taken or not wanted. The use of the new process will assist with planning and food waste.
Effective Nov 1, 2021 elementary families will need to opt in to the free take home breakfast bag program. Each elementary school will be posting an opt-in form on their buildings website for families to complete. It is not mandatory to register for the breakfast program, you only need to opt in if you would like your student to receive the daily free breakfast meal bag. The opt in is a one time sign up. If you don't register and you would like to participate or opt out at a later time, you will just need to contact your school's cafeteria manager via their school email.
Until November 1st the breakfast bag program will run as it has. On Nov. 1 if you have not opted in to the program, your student will not receive a breakfast bag to take home. Any questions regarding the nutrition programs please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
