Meal Pickup During Remote Learning
Pre-packaged breakfast and lunch will be offered for takeaway on Tuesdays and Fridays from 12-4pm at the High School Gym beginning on Tuesday, September 8th. This service will be offered through Maschio's, the same company that provides our food service on campus during the school year.
Meal cost will be based on free or reduced lunch status. Families who do not qualify for free or reduced lunch can purchase meals at full price. A student ID card or ID number, which can be found next to the student’s name in PowerSchool, is required to pick up meals. Parents and/or students are able to pick up meals for a few days, or for the entire week for every New Foundations child in their household. Families are also able to pick up meals for other families, as long as they can provide those student(s)'s ID numbers. Please remember to wear a mask and maintain social distance when on campus.
For those families who will need to provide payment, payments will be accepted on-site or online at scholarconnect.com. For questions regarding student food balances, please contact Amber Dietrich for K-8 at email@example.com and Geri Allmond for HS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
