District Six takes pride in our Farm to School program. We will continue to serve children with a variety of healthy options during the school year. We are implementing a classroom lunch order system so that students may choose the meals they wish to enjoy. As an added precaution, self-serve lunch lines and salad bars have been temporarily closed.
Appropriate safety measures will be utilized as our culinary staff prepares meals for students. In addition to masks and gloves, all employees have also been advised to practice social distancing while preparing meals, while continuing to follow food safety guidelines.
As an added precaution, our water fountains will be turned off in all of our school buildings. Each school will have water filling stations. Students and employees are encouraged to bring water bottles from home that can be refilled throughout the day.
In order to minimize any safety risk associated with the exchange of money, parents will be using K12 payment center to add money to their student’s meal account. Parents can go to the district’s website under school food and nutrition to enroll their child in K12 payment center.
