Dear Parents and Guardians:
Effective today, September 2, 2020, Big Horn County School District #3 is approved for the continuance of the Summer Food Service Program through USDA until December 31, 2020. What that means for the students in this district is that all students can eat breakfast and lunch for free through December 31, 2020. This program is available to all children through age 18. Any child not currently attending school at Big Horn County School District #3 would need to call in their order by 10a.m. (call Barb at 765-4756) for pickup at the GHS Cafeteria.
As far as the process for students attending in person, nothing will change. They will go through the lunch line as normal, but there will not be a charge to their account. This does not apply to a la cart or additional milk. They would still have to pay for these choices just as they always have. Any balance in your students' lunch will remain there, so that in January, when we return to the National School Lunch Program, they will have adequate funds in their account.
This program is through the USDA, and not something our district is self funding. Please call Sara Schlattmann at 307-765-4756 if you have any questions.
Big Horn County School District #3
