Waiver Allows Free Meals for All Students

Waiver Allows Free Meals for All Students

The District has been approved to serve free meals to ALL students regardless of meal status, as well as all community members age 18 and under. For remote learners, or those on an alternating schedule, we now have mobile ordering available through Nutrislice, either on the Nutrislice app or through the menus linked on the District website hereWith the anticipated increase in curbside pickup orders, we are asking that all orders are placed by 8am for same day pickup. 

All students, whether in-person or remote, will be eligible for a free breakfast and a free lunch each school day. Curbside pickup lunch orders will include a breakfast for the following morning and pickups will occur at the following locations and times:

  • Barry School (for Pathfinder and Barry Students): Front circle drive, 12:30 to 1:30pm
  • Platte City Middle School (for Compass, Siegrist, PCMS and PCHS students): Front drive, 12:30 to 1:30 pm.

If you think you may qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch, please fill out the form linked here, so that you are covered when this free program ends. This form is not required to receive the free meals under this waiver, but helps us assist families in various other ways.

 

These waivers are currently allowed through December 31, 2020 or until the USDA notifies districts the funding has run out.

 

Additional meals and a la carte items (extra milk, extra entrees, chips, etc.) are not included in the waiver. This waiver does not include adult meals.
