USDA School Meals Program - Fall 2020
We have been issued a waiver to participate in the free meals to all children program through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through December 2020. All children in our community aged 1-18, including all in-person/hybrid and virtual students, can receive free breakfast and lunch through December, or until federal funding runs out.

Beginning Monday, September 14, no student will be charged for regular school meals. Ala carte items and extra meals or extra items will be served at the normal cost.

Families do not need to do anything for students to receive these free meals, as all students will eat for free.

School districts across the country are participating in the program. Any district with at least one school at 50% free or reduced lunch participation began the program this week. Since none of our schools come close to that number, we delayed starting the program until we could confirm with Missouri that our participation in the program would be honored and reimbursed.

Earlier this month we communicated that we would be providing meals for hybrid students on their distant learning days, as well as all virtual students. Families were asked at that time to fill out a form to participate in this program. These meals will also be free to families beginning September 14. Any family who would like to be added to the distant learning meal pick up program, please CLICK HERE to complete the form. The form will be open until Friday, September 18. Meals are available for pick up only from North Middle School on Pink Hill Road (serving students from any GV school) between 9:30-10:00 AM Monday through Thursday and 11:00-11:30 on Fridays. 3-day and 5-day meal packs are available on Fridays. No delivery is available. Families may designate someone else to pick up their child’s meals.
Student Transportation "Passes" Suspended
Students are only permitted to ride their assigned bus routes and all passengers have assigned seating to make contact tracing possible. We are not allowing students to ride with a friend on another bus route until further notice.
