District lunch menus offer great variety and meet nutritional guidelines for children established by the Federal Government. There are more than 11 options for students to choose each day. Parents of children who have food allergies may request access to nutrition labels which are stored digitally, to identify items that their children need to avoid. Call Jane Blackburn, Director of Cafeteria Operations, at 678-7548, for questions and concerns related to food allergies.
The Oceanside Schools’ Food Service Department is pleased to offer a secure, family-friendly system for online pre-payments and nutrition education through our Nutrikids operating system. My SchoolBucks allows parents to deposit money into their child’s school meal plan, track purchases, and view their balance. We will send letters home before school opens to further explain and provide your child’s student ID# which is necessary to sign up.
Reduced-Priced Meals 2019-20 = $0.00!
Beginning July 1, 2019, students approved for reduced-price meals will receive breakfast and lunch meals at no charge. Historically, students eligible for this program paid 25 cents towards the purchase of a reduced-priced meal. Next year New York State funding will provide an additional 25 cents in State reimbursement for each reimbursable breakfast and lunch meal served to a reduced-price student to cover the cost previously paid by the student. Parent communications and District forms will be updated to reflect this change.
