Letter from WPS Superintendent outlines USDA free meals for kids program
Free breakfast & lunch will be provided to all students through Dec. 31
October 1, 2020
Wahoo Public Schools will be participating in a program through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that will provide free meals, breakfast and lunch, for all students at school. The effective date of this participation will be September 1, 2020, and will run through December 31, 2020 or until the federal funding runs out. With that said, here are some important points of the program:
- The student’s meal accounts will be reimbursed any charges incurred from September 1 due to participation in the regular meal program.
- We will NOT write checks to reimburse individuals for their participation during this time. The funds will remain in the student account so when we return to the regular program, the student can continue participation in meals.
- The program is set to expire at the end of the first semester or when federal funds are depleted. We will communicate with parents if the program does not last through the end of the first semester.
- If a student selects an extra entrée or ala carte item, those are not covered under the USDA program and will be charged to the student meal account.
We feel fortunate to have the support of the USDA and be able to participate in this program. If you have any further questions, please contact the superintendent’s office for more information.
