Good evening parents. This is Principal Stokes with an important message regarding Guilford County Schools’ meal program.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended waivers allowing districts flexibility in how schools distribute and pay for student meals. We are thrilled that we will continue to operate through Dec. 31, 2020, under the summer nutrition guidelines, which allows us to serve meals to all children who are age 18 and under, without charge.
These meals will be available daily from 11 am to 12 noon, curbside, at every school and families can visit any school to pick up the meals which include lunch and breakfast for the next day.
Students attending one of our 13 learning centers will have meals delivered to them onsite.
We want to encourage parents to please take a few minutes and fill out a meal benefits application at www.lunchapplication.com, in preparation for when the waivers expire at the end of December. Parents may reapply at any time during the year if their financial situation changes.
