To LSCD Families:
I would like to say Welcome to the 2019-2020 school years. The food service department has been working hard this summer, with our Summer Meals Program and our Second Yearof the Literacy Lunch Box Program which has been a very successful. We expanded the prograsm to include 5 locations, I am very happy with the results.
We are again, happy to be a CEP provider, So all Students receive free breakfast and free lunch daily at their school. We are, however, requesting that each family in the district complete and return the CEP HOUSEHOLD INCOME FORM FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR , which is required for administrative purposes. This form allows our school to benefit from various State and Federal supplemental programs like Title IA, at risk (31a), Title IIA, E-Rate, etc. The information is critical in determining the amount of money the school receives from a variety of supplemental programs, as well as other student benefits. All information on the survey submitted is confidential. Without your assistance, the District cannot maximize utilization of available State and Federal funds.
If you have received a letter from New York State stating that your child (ren) are directly certified for free meals, please send a copy to your school. Please remember to complete all other sections. With the new administration in Washington DC, there have been some changes in our nutrition regulations, which will give us back some flexibility. The Lyons Nutrition Services continues to make strides towards improving the nutritional quality of all meals served. Fresh fruit and vegetables will continue to be served in a variety of ways; we will follow the current sodium levels regulations. As Sonnie Perdue our Agricultural Secretary argued “That if kids don’t like what they are offered, they simply won’t eat it, and giving schools more time to comply would help children get more of the nutrition they need”. So at this time we will have available White skim milk and 1% white and chocolate at both Breakfast and Lunch Also, we have been making changes to our whole grain bread, by reducing it to a more kid friendly 51% whole grain.
i am hoping you are all using the Nutrislice program while looking over the current month’s menu when you click on a menu item the nutritional’s for that item will open in a box, so you can see that info, as you look over the new menu’s you will notice other boxes form carb counting and allergies, we will also have helpful info and recipes for home use. We will also have our Wayne Wednesday choices listed on the menu. These are Local grown products we will feature each month during the year. Along with the farm we received them from.
We also provided you with a list of approved in classroom celebration suggestions that we offer to parents. We also have on our website Special dietary needs request forms that will need a Doctors signature. In addition we have a Point of Sale request form that you can fill out that will inform us of your wishes for your child (ren) as to amount and days they may purchase snacks. Please visit our portion of the Lyons School website for all the information, forms.
If at any time during the year you have questions, please feel free to contact me or the manager of the kitchen where your child attends school.
