School Meals During Summer

 

The Summer Food Service Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides free nutritious meals to children during the summer when school meals are typically unavailable. Meals can be eaten outside or taken off-site. Cafeterias will not be open to the public for eating meals.

For sites without a breakfast time indicated, breakfast meals will be handed out at lunch to take out for the following day.

Neighborhood food site location and additional food pick up details:

  • All children 18 or younger in the household may receive one breakfast meal and one lunch meal daily, Monday – Friday
  • Parents may pick up meals on behalf of eligible children
  • No identification is required

2020-2021 CALENDAR

 

For those interested in the 45-15 schedule, this innovative schedule uses the same number of days as the rest of the district but disperses them more evenly throughout the year. All “days off” for the rest of the district have been built into our schedule including the longer winter and spring breaks. Between quarters (intersessions), students will be able to register for optional afternoon care through the Boys and Girls Club.

  • same number of school days (just spread out more evenly)
  • all of the breaks for the rest of the district align with ours
  • during our 15 day breaks (intersessions), care will be available when the rest of the district is in session
  • increased student achievement by providing timely intersession help

Programs Available During the School Day:

 

  • Early Childhood
  • 4 Year Old Preschool
  • Boys & Girls Club Program On Site After the School Day for kindergarten through 2nd Grade
  • Boys & Girls Club Program Off Site After the School Day for 3rd to 5th Grade
