Beginning September 1, 2020 all ENROLLED students of USD 244 Burlington will receive free meals (in person and online learners). This is due to the district electing a USDA waiver to extend the Summer Food Service meal program. The district will be able to operate this program through June 30, 2021. This means that all students will receive a free breakfast and lunch if they elect to eat each day. Any extras, a la carte items and 2nd breakfast will still have normal charges if the student consumes those items. However, if a student does not eat frist breakfast, the student would get 2nd breakfast for free.
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 go back to their original meal status prior to September 1, 2020. This waiver does not affect meal status and the district will continue to accept free and reduced meal applications.
Currently this waiver does not apply to the after school program at BES.
