For information about how meal information will be communicated, visit the Communication/Family and Community Engagement section of our reopening plan.
For students onsite, meals will be provided while maintaining appropriate social distancing between students. Students do not need to wear face coverings when seated and eating so long as they are appropriately socially distanced.
The district will ensure social distancing between individuals while eating in the school cafeteria. If not feasible, meals may be served in alternate areas (e.g., classrooms) or in staggered meal periods to ensure social distancing and proper cleaning and disinfection between students.
The sharing of food and beverages (e.g., buffet-style meals, snacks) is prohibited unless individuals are members of the same household. Adequate space will be reserved for students, faculty, and staff to observe social distancing while eating meals.
Breakfasts will be served in one of two ways, depending on the building. Students may pass through the cafeteria lines while properly socially distanced and proceed back to a classroom to eat. Or students may have meals delivered to them from the cafeteria to the classroom. Which system is used depends on whether it is breakfast or lunch and whether it is our younger or older students. Regardless of the system used, all health, safety, hygiene, cleaning, disinfecting, and Child Nutrition protocols and requirements will be used.
