River Valley Local School District has been awarded funding to provide every student free breakfasts and free lunches each school day through the end of the 2020-21 school year. You will receive this benefit regardless if you filled out a free and reduced meal application or not.
Free meals served at school…
Breakfast will continue to be served as a grab and go and taken to the students’ homeroom or their 1stperiod class room.
Lunch options will continue to expand and will be served safely and socially distanced in our buildings.
Free meals for home on the 3 online learning days…
Students may choose to take meals home for the 3 days of online learning. At the elementary level meals will be sent home with students on Wednesdays or Thursdays unless parents opt out of this service. The “opt out” link will be shared with our families in the next day or 2 on social media. Middle School and High School students may pick up meals as they exit the buildings on Wednesdays or Thursdays at designated locations.
Free meals for students that signed up for all online classes…
Meals will be available to pick up on Thursdays from 4:30-6:30pm at the high school, Heritage Elementary and Liberty Elementary buildings. You may pick up from any 1 of these 3 locations. They may ask you for your student’s names and grade levels. Students do not need to be present when picking up meals. No sign up needed.
Will I need to fill out the free and reduced meal application?
Yes. The free meals (without an application) is only temporary and will run through December or until funding runs out. Free or reduced meals applications are available on our website or at https://www.myschoolapps.com/Application
The information collected on this form is also used to determine discounts on school fees and other activity fees throughout the district. So you will want to continue completing this forms for those purposes.
A la Carte Items…
RVMS and RVHS will still charge for “extras” and a la carte items. The only items that are free are 1 reimbursable breakfast and 1 reimbursable lunch per day per student.
To simplify our process we will follow the Hybrid lunch menu posted on our website.
