We are serving K-5 lunch meals in the classroom and Middle School and High School students are on hybrid schedules. On their virtual learning day, we serve lunch to our BOCES students. Not to mention full-time virtual students receiving curbside meals! Our staff has been absolutely wonderful, and I can’t thank them enough! They have adapted seamlessly to all the changes thrown their way! I am sure this is true of every school district at this time! To celebrate, our K-5 students colored SNA picture sheets which we displayed outside the cafeterias. The Middle School and High School students received a prize for the first correctly completed SNA word scramble puzzle! Our artwork and winners were posted on the district Facebook and Instagram pages. Child Nutrition staff was featured and thanked on our district website also. I am always so appreciative of my employees; they are the best of the best!!
