Re: Free Meals
Greetings Chadron Public Schools Parents, Patrons, and Students:
We are excited to send out some great news: for the 2021-2022 school year, All students regardless of economic status will receive free meals at Chadron Public Schools. Money is provided by the CARES Act.. The USDA has given guidance that schools may extend the Meal Program in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Meals will include both breakfast and lunch served through our school food program. Seconds and ala carte items will be charged to your child’s account.
This guidance came Summer 2021 and our application was filed. Thus allowing us to continue this great benefit. I encourage you to have your students eat at school. Please continue to fill out free and reduced lunch forms as normal. These numbers allow us to apply for and reap other benefits.
Chadron Public Schools hopes that this news comes as a pleasant surprise and helps each family financially through these unprecedented times.
Ginger L. Meyer, Superintendent
