Procedures for Food Service on Remote Learning Days
FREE MEAL PROGRAM FOR ALL STUDENTS UNDER AGE 18
Earlier in September, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture announced an extension of the Free Breakfast and Lunch program, providing free meals to all registered students through June 30, 2020. The Pennsylvania Department of Education has provided guidance to schools on how to implement this program.
Chartiers Valley School District is now offering FREE breakfast and FREE lunch to every student, every school day. This includes to-go meals for students learning virtually.
To-go meals for virtual days (both CV Cyber and Hybrid) must be ordered using this Google Form. Orders must be placed 24 hours in advance and picked up at the following times:
- CV Cyber Students can pick up to-go meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 am -12:00 noon at the High School.
- Hybrid students with last names beginning in A-K can pick up meals for their remote days at the end of the day each Tuesday before leaving school.
- Hybrid students with last names beginning in L-Z can pick up their to-go meals each Thursday before going home.
At this time, the free meals for all students will only run until December 31, 2020, at which time meal pay statuses will return to Paid, Free, or Reduced rates based on qualifications. Be sure to submit your free/reduced meal applications as soon as possible to avoid any gap in benefits. Applications can be found under the Free and Reduced Meals heading below.
In the future, upon completion of the free meal program, all Chartiers Valley students, whether enrolled in Hybrid, Hybrid+2, or CV Cyber Academy, will have the opportunity to purchase daily breakfast and lunch. Free and reduced-price meals will be provided at no/low cost to families who qualify. For more information regarding free and reduced meals programming, menus, and CV cafeteria procedures, click here.
On in-person days, Hybrid students will purchase meals as usual, in the cafeteria. In order to minimize contact, CASH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED in the cafeteria. Please add funds via the SchoolCafe app or send a check to school with your student to be collected in homeroom.
To order to-go meals for remote learning days, hybrid and CV Cyber Academy students must submit requests at least 24 hours in advance using the form linked below.
For all CV Cyber students, meal pick-up will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm at the High School, near door #13.
Hybrid students who have pre-ordered to-go meals for remote learning days will pick up their meals from the cafeteria at the end of the in-person school day on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (Primary students will have pre-ordered to-go meals delivered to their classrooms.) Hybrid students with last names beginning in A-K will pick up their to-go meals on Tuesdays. Hybrid students with last names beginning with L-Z will pick up their to-go meals on Thursdays.
THIS WEEK ONLY - Students who are learning remotely on Monday and Tuesday, August 24 and 25 (all CV Cyber and L-Z Hybrid students) may schedule to pick up meals for the first two days of remote learning. This pick-up will be Friday, August 21 from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm at the High School, near door #13.
- When picking up meals, students and/or parents will need to provide their student's ID number.
