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.



Regards,


Ginger L. Meyer, Superintendent

Summer Lunch Program until June 30

 Greetings Chadron Public Schools Parents, Patrons, and Students:


We are excited to send out some great news:  We will have a Summer lunch program through the end of June. All students ages up to 18 years of age, regardless of economic status will receive free meals at Chadron Public Schools.  Meals will include both breakfast and lunch served through our school food program.  The Child must be present to get a "Grab and Go Lunch." With summer work going on, there will-not be an eating area set up. The lunch will be a hot meal and will also include a breakfast for the next day.


Meals will be served from the high school kitchen from 11:30 to 12:15. Students may enter by the front door. Once again the child must be present to receive.

 Greetings, 

I hope everyone had a great and restful break.  The weather has been so nice. 

Good news from the Unicameral.  Senator Walz (an educator) was voted as the Chair of the Education Committee.  This will be a nice change.

Over break, I had some communication with some of the community.  The communication came as a thank you. Thank you for getting our kids in class and keeping them there.  Thank you for letting them participate in activities.  Thank you for everything you are doing.  My answer is always the same.  Thank you, but it is not me.  It is the CPS staff.  They are ROCKSTARS.  The kids are awesome with the protocols.  This is sincerely a group and community effort.  

NDE is allowing us to give some needed breaks due to CoVid.  They gave us 5 days basically.  I do not intend to use 5 days.  We are thinking about January 22, February 16, and March 26.  January 22 is our big wrestling meet that normally happens at the College.  This year CSC have declined to host because of CoVid.  We would like to go ahead and have the meet.  This would bring many to our school.  We would need to start the meet earlier than if it were at the college because of space.  We will use both gyms.  February 16 will extend a break for students.  March 26 is Quiz Bowl at the Middle School, so this helps with capacity  These are days off for kids, not the staff.  

I want to thank you all!!!  Happy New Year.
