Seamless Summer Option Meal Program
Late last week the USDA announced a waiver for schools to utilize the Seamless Summer Option meal program similar to the one we used to feed students for free in the spring. This is a waiver USD #372 qualifies for and our waiver has been approved. Beginning September 4, 2020 all ENROLLED students of USD 372 Silver Lake will receive free meals (in person and Remote learners). The district will be able to operate this program through the end of this school year.. This means that all students will receive a free breakfast and lunch if they elect to eat each day. Any extras, ala carte items and 2nd breakfast or lunch will still have the normal charges if the student chooses to take these.
The district will update the meal accounts for all students to reflect free meals as of the date above. Parents don’t have to do anything at this time. Once the program funds are spent, all students will return to their original meal status prior to September 4, 2020. This waiver does not affect meal status and the district will continue to accept free and reduced meal applications.
If you have any questions about the program, please contact Debbie Walburn at dwalburn@silverlakeschools.
