Wonderful News from Team Nutrition!

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

We are excited to serve you and your students!  You may make payments on your student's account in any school office or use the online payment system, either through the school website or our mobile menu app.

                  Thank You for Supporting Your School Nutrition Program!!!

We received notice that USDA originally overfunded the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant in Wyoming so 8 districts had their grant rescinded, ours included based on the low percentage of free and reduced price meals in these districts.  We are disappointed that our students will not have this opportunity this school year due to funding not being available!

We are creating a Team of substitutes to help as needed throughout the school year.  This would be an on-call position to fill in for staff who need to be gone for various reasons.  Duties may include helping with prep, serving students and clean-up.  You can work while your children are in school and be home before they get there.

 See Keni Hopkins in Central Office to start the substitute paperwork and background check today !

                                                                                 Lunch Balance

      We have a  School Meal Charge Policy limiting meal charges.  Once the meal balance reaches the limit parents will be expected to provide a lunch from home until the lunch balance has been paid in full.  We are happy to work with you, please contact the Food Service Office to make payment arrangements at 367-2447. 

                                         UNPAID STUDENT MEAL DEBT

The district expects that parents take financial responsibility for their student’s meals and has adopted these procedures for collection of payment which include but are not limited to:

  1. Payment is expected in advance of the students eating each day and parents are expected to maintain a positive meal balance throughout the year.
  2. Payment can be made online at sub1.org – Students/Parents – under Pay For Stuff, in any school office, at any school meal service line in the cafeteria or through their classroom teacher.
  3. It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the Food Service office of any adverse circumstance that may arise preventing timely payment so we can work together to establish a payment plan or apply for meal benefits.
  4. Families may apply or reapply for free or reduced meal benefits at any time during the school year.
  5. Students qualifying for free or reduced price meals will not be denied a meal even if they don't have money in their account.
  6. Balances below zero will be communicated daily to parents, through texts, phone calls and emails and a payment plan is to be established.  
  7. Alternate meals will not be provided for students who are charging.
  8. Principals will be notified and become involved in the payment process prior to a student not being allowed to eat. Once student meal accounts exceed the meal charge limit of $25.00, parents will be notified they need to send daily cash or a packed lunch from home until payment can be made in full.  Payment arrangements need to be established with the Food Service office for these students to continue eating school meals outside of payment in full.
  9. If the child continues to arrive at the school without a packed lunch, or funds to purchase meals, the case will be considered for referral to the Department of Family Services.
  10. The school district will pursue delinquent accounts through a collection agency at the end of the year or when a family moves from the district.

Start the Day with a Nutritious "Grab-n-Go" Breakfast-$1.50 at the Elementary and $1.75 at the Middle School and High School                                                                      

 

Getting More Students to Begin their Day with Breakfast   

               “Wake Up to School Breakfast” Encourages Pinedale  Families to Choose Breakfast at School

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for families to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, US Department of Agriculture statistics show that more students are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast in their school cafeterias.  We would like to encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available with school breakfast and allow yourself  the convenience of having more time in the morning.  Be sure to drop your kids off early enough so they have time to eat before class!

“Wake Up to School Breakfast”, reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy, energizing start to the day for students. Students are encouraged to “Wake Up” their minds and bodies with a nutritious breakfast to help jump start their day. 

“A healthy breakfast at the start of the day is one way to ensure students are getting the best education they can,” said Gail Wilkerson, Director of Nutrition Services.  The district serves over 150 breakfast meals daily through the federally funded School Breakfast Program.  School nutrition professionals in each Pinedale school,  prepare breakfast and lunches every day that meet federal nutrition standards – limiting fat, calories and sodium – and encourage students to choose from the fruits, vegetables and whole grains offered with school meals.

Across the country, parents, teachers, health professionals, and military members share the same feelings that healthier school meals will have a huge and positive impact on our country.

There are a few things we’d like you to know:

·The new standards ensure that children have the energy they need to learn in class and be physically active, while reducing their risk for obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other serious chronic diseases.

·The new school meals are intended to be high in nutrients and adequate in calories, based on recommendations from the Institute of Medicine and consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. New school meals portions are "right sized" to reflect the proper balance between food groups.

·The new school meals offer more fruits and vegetables at lunch than previous meal pattern requirements, and the amount of fruits at breakfast have doubled in the past year. Whole grains are also increased substantially.

·The new standards ensure requirements for meat/meat alternates for each age group are in line with current nutrition science.  Our protein offering meet and exceed the national standard.

·The new school meals are designed to meet only a portion of a child's nutritional needs over the course of the school day.

·Schools and families have options to help meet the needs of highly active students who may need additional calories, such as athletes. See the menus page to view these options.
