Meal Distribution for Hybrid and Remote Learners
In response to feedback from our families, the Wheatland-Chili Central School District is striving to improve access to school meals on days of remote learning. The United States Department of Agriculture has extended the Free Meals Program through the duration of the 2020-21 school year, so all regular breakfast and lunch options are free to children 19 and under until June 30, 2021.
Starting Friday, October 23, hybrid students in grades 8, 10, and 12 will receive three breakfasts and lunches every Friday as they leave the building. Starting Tuesday, October 27, all T. J. Connor and 6th-grade students will receive meals for remote Wednesday as they leave the building. Grades 7, 9, and 11 will receive three breakfasts and lunches at the end of every Tuesday.
Fully-remote students can still order meals five days a week. To accommodate family schedules, pick-ups can now be scheduled to include multiple day’s meals at a time. Families of hybrid students who wish to opt out of the Remote Meals Distribution Program can call 585-889-6237 (T. J. Connor) or 585-889-6251 (MS/HS).
