Dear Westonka Families,
Please see the information below regarding meal options for the remainder of 2020-21 school year. If the learning model for the district, or your student's building changes, we will send you information regarding updated meal options. Please don't hesitate to contact our office with questions.
January 2021 Meal Options for Westonka Students:
Students of Westonka Schools will have multiple ways to access meals depending on their grade level and learning model choice.
In Person Students:
On days when your student is learning in their school building, they will visit our kitchens and cafeterias as they have in previous years but with extra safety and physical distancing measures in place.
Thanks to an extension of the USDA School Meal Waiver announced Aug. 31, all meals will be provided free of charge.
* For more information about how your student’s school is promoting physical distancing during meal services, please reach out to the school directly.
"A" students pick up meals for distance learning school days on Monday and Wednesday. "B" students pick up meals on Tuesday and Thursday.
Hybrid A kids will pick up meals on Monday for Tuesday and Wednesday for Thursday AND Friday.
Hybrid B kids will pick up meals on Tuesday for Wednesday and Thursday for Friday AND Monday.
- Hybrid meals can be picked up at GMS cafeteria between 2:40-3:00pm or by the bus loading area on student days (excluding holidays and non-school days).
- Hybrid meals can be picked up by students at the end of the school day as they exit the building by the doors to the north parking lot, near the commons, or at the entrance to the Performing Arts Center between 2:00-3:45 pm (excluding holidays and non-school days).
All hybrid meals are served free of charge.
