Understanding the Truth About School Lunch Regulations

Over the past few weeks, misinformation has been circulated regarding our school lunch policy and our community deserves the facts. Firstly, no student has received a partial lunch during the 2019-20 school year. No member of the 9-R team has employed shaming tactics toward students. And, the District maintains compliance with National School Lunch and National School Breakfast program federal guidelines. In 2015, the district faced a critical issue as it ended the school year with over $18,000 in meal charge debt. Because school district Food & Nutrition Services departments are an independent enterprise, they are intended to be self-supporting. When a deficit occurs, the District needs to use general funds to offset losses, funds that should be designated for classrooms. It has been 9-R’s focus to minimize impacts on educational funding to maximize programs and educational resources for our students.

Important Reminder from Health Services

It's that time of year again where many students and family members are coming down with various illnesses. In the schools, we have diagnosed cases of influenza, strep throat, as well as common colds. A rule of thumb is to keep kids home from school with fevers greater than 100 degrees, and students should be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications. Please do not send kids to school that are vomiting or have diarrhea until symptom free for 24 hours. For coughs and colds, students that are coughing consistently, and pose a risk of infecting others, should remain home until coughing subsides.
