DOE- What's Happening in NYC Public Schools
Fri, Feb 4 11:03am

Good morning Children's School Families and Community;

 

Hope all is well.

 

Please find attached Family Letter from the DOE letting you know what is going on in NYC Public Schools.

 

Also, please note that starting today, Friday, February 4, Vegan Fridays:

 

Building on the great success of Meatless Mondays, introduced in 2019, and Meatless Fridays, introduced in April 2021, Vegan Fridays will feature a vegan dish as the primary menu item. These menu items are plant based and made from scratch. Our team of chefs prepared these recipes utilizing high quality ingredients to ensure they would be tasty and satisfying. They meet all of the USDA child nutrition standards. Please note:  

  • Vegan options are already offered in all schools on a daily basis, and milk is available as an option with every meal. 
  • Further, additional options are always available, including peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and hummus and pretzels, and students will continue to have non-vegan options available to them on Fridays. 

 

If you have any questions please let me know.

 

Thank you and have a great weekend.

Yvette Agas-Bautz, Parent Coordinator
