Dear CV Families.

We are excited to share some very important updates from our Food Service Department regarding access to meals for all children.

Due to a recent change in legislation, Cumberland Valley School District is again able to offer FREE meals to ALL children. The free meal program is effective immediately and will run through the end of the 2020-21 school year (pending available funding). Please read below for important notes and for more details on how to participate in the free breakfast and lunch program.

Elementary Face-to-Face Students
Our elementary students who attend school full days, five days per week will be able to participate in this program during normal breakfast and lunch hours within their specific building. These children will simply order their meals as normal and their meal account will not be charged*.

Middle School Hybrid Students
On the days in which middle school students attend face-to-face, they will be able to participate in this program during normal breakfast and lunch hours within their specific building by simply ordering their meals as normal. Their meal account will not be charged*. 

These students may also complete a form at their building to request bagged meals for the school days in which they do not attend face-to-face. Please have your child follow the instructions from their teacher/principal on how to request meals for the days in which they are learning at home.

High School Hybrid Students
On the days in which high school students attend face-to-face, they will be able to participate in this program during normal breakfast hours within the building and by picking up a grab-and-go lunch at the end of their school day. Their meal account will not be charged*.

These students may also complete a form at their building to request bagged meals for the school days in which they do not attend face-to-face. Please have your child follow the instructions from their teacher/principal on how to request meals for the days in which they are learning at home.

CVVA students, face-to-face half-day kindergarten students, and other children within the community
Students attending a full-time online academy, kindergarten students attending CV's half-day, face-to-face program, or other children within the community who do not fall within any of the above-mentioned school attendance schedules may click HERE to access a form to request free meals. By completing this form, you indicate that you will be picking up the bagged meals on the date listed at the bottom of the form. Meals will be available for pickup from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. each Wednesday. 

Meals will now be picked up at the Eagle Lobby entrance to Cumberland Valley High School (along the side of the building under the big “CV.”) We would ask that all traffic enter campus at the light and follow the road around the back and side of the high school and into the student parking lot. At the bottom of this email, you will find a map that outlines the requested traffic pattern. 

During pickup, you will receive five breakfasts and five lunches for each student for whom you have registered to receive meals that week.

 
This form must be completed by 9 a.m. on the Wednesday of each week in which you would like to schedule meal pickup. You must complete a new form for each child and for each week in which you are requesting meals.

A few important notes for all participants …

  • Please note that each child is only eligible for the equivalent of one free breakfast/lunch per school day. Duplicate meals may result in your child's account being charged for the extra meal(s).
  • Students who obtain free meals while attending school will be charged for any additional ala carte items in which they might choose to purchase.

Please do not hesitate to contact our Food Service Department with any questions regarding this program.

Thank you.
