Free Meals for Schuyler Students Extends to End of School Year

Free Meals for Schuyler Students Extends to End of School Year

Schuyler R-1 has been approved for free meals for Schuyler students 18 and under throughout the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.

Schuyler R-1 will be utilizing the nationwide waiver for FREE MEALS from the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) through the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS).

Who Is Eligible?

Every Schuyler R-1 student and child 18 and under. If you have a child in Schuyler County that is not a student, please contact the program coordinator for more information.

What Does This Mean?

Meals on school days between September 1 and May 28 will be free to children under the Summer Food Service Program nationwide waiver extension.

What Is Covered?

The free meal does not include a la carte items, extra milks, or any other items beyond a whole unit meal (breakfast or lunch choice with listed sides). These items are still available, but the student will be charged.

What About My Child’s Allergies?

A student with a documented allergy will receive an equivalent item for that part of their meal. For example, a student may get an apple in place of strawberries if it is documented with the nurse that the student is allergic to strawberries.

What About The Lunch Money I Have Already Paid?

For those that have already deposited money into their meal accounts, that money will remain in their accounts.
