MEAL INFOMEAL INFORMATION

The federal program that has allowed school districts across the country to offer free breakfast and lunch to ALL students, regardless of income, expired on June 30, 2022.

As a result, schools across the nation will be reverting back to free and reduced-price meals based on income eligibility guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

During the 2022-23 school year, families who do not qualify for free or reduced meals will have to pay for school meals. Students whose families are eligible for free or reduced price breakfast or lunch will be able to access meals this school year at no cost or a discounted rate. To determine eligibility, all families are asked to complete a Free and Reduced Meal Application.

A printable application can be found here or is available at any school office.

You can access breakfast and lunch menus on the district website under the "For Parents" tab or using the "menu" quick link under the scrolling pictures on the home page (August/September menus will be added soon). These menus can also easily be accessed through the district's mobile app. Click here to access the menus.

Below are the breakfast and lunch prices for each building. There are two options for paying for school meals. Parents can send money to the school or can use our online payment system, RevTrak, to make payments. RevTrak can be accessed under the "For Parents" tab or using the "online payment" quick link.

One of the best ways for parents to stay informed on their child's progress in school is to create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account.

PowerSchool is a secure internet-based website that will allow you to easily keep track of nearly everything your student does while at school. This service will allow you to view your student’s attendance, grades, schedule, food service balance, progress, assignments, emergency information, and more. You can also download the PowerSchool app to your mobile device.

The district has created a short video to guide you through the process of creating a Parent Portal account. Please click the link below and follow the simple steps to create your account. If you should have any questions please contact your child's school office.

text messagesTEXT MESSAGING SYSTEM

It is always our goal to have the most up-to-date contact information for our families. One of the ways we will reach out to parents regarding important events, school closings, and safety alerts is via our text messaging service through School Messenger.

If you received text messages from our district last year AND your cell phone number has not changed, there is nothing further you need to do.

If you did not receive text messages from the district last year OR your cell number has changed, there are TWO very important steps you need to take.

1). Provide your child's school with the cell number where you wish to receive text messages.

2). After updating your cell phone number with the school office, follow the simple steps found here. You MUST opt-in to receive text messages from the district.

DROP OFF PICK UP
STUDENT DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP INFORMATION

We know that drop-off and pick-up expectations can be confusing, especially if this will be your child's first year in a new building.

The maps at the links below were created to help alleviate any confusion and to ensure the safety of our Cardinals. We ask that parents refer to the maps to learn about entrances and exits at each building, where "bus only" lanes are located, and to let us know if you have any questions.

****Parents of Henry and CIS students, please be aware that due to safety concerns, there will be no pick-up in the parking lot between Henry and CIS. If your Henry Elementary child has a sibling walking over from another school they must enter on the northside of Henry Elementary and go to the south side of the building to be picked up as a car rider off of Bodine Street.****
