CVSD Food Services
Conewago Valley School District (CVSD) recognizes that wellness and proper nutrition are related to students physical well-being, growth, development and readiness to learn. All foods available in the district schools during the day are offered to students with consideration for promoting student health and reducing childhood obesity. Foods provided through the National School Lunch Programs comply with federal nutrition standards under the School Meals Initiative.
We are currently processing applications for Free/Reduced Priced lunch and breakfast for the 2016-2017 school year. Interested families may fill out a Free/Reduced Priced Meal Application for their entire household and return it to the student’s school office.
Students have until October 3rd to receive meals on last year’s application status provided they were enrolled in CVSD on the last day of school. If a new application is not received, the student’s meal status will become Full Price on October 2nd.
Free and Reduced Lunch Program
Many families need financial assistance at various times. It is important to take advantage of programs that can help keep your children healthy and learning in spite of financial pressures. We encourage all families who are eligible for the Free and Reduced Lunch program to apply, and to know that we are committed to protecting your privacy.
Breakfast & Lunch Program
Each school in the district has a cafeteria that prepares nutritious meals daily. Students and adults in the elementary and secondary schools can purchase lunches or students may bring a lunch from home and purchase milk in the cafeteria.
All students in grades K-12 may deposit money into an "account" to purchase meals and/or a la carte items through the district's point-of-sale system. Monthly menus are available to all students.
CAFETERIA PROCEDURE REGARDING STUDENTS' LUNCH ACCOUNTS
Parents are responsible for providing their children with lunch money or a packed lunch from home. Parents are also encouraged to put money “on account” for their children in the district. When children have money on their lunch account, it allows for a smoother process during lunchtime and can avoid money being misplaced or lost. Parents may write a check to CVSD Food Service, send cash, or make a payment online with debit, credit, or e-check via family access. Below are the procedures outlining the parameters of charges for school meals and are intended to set a process for collection of funds due to the district.
Students in grades K-6 are given a written notification when their account balance reaches $5.00 or below. In addition, emails and written reminders are sent home with students when their account balance is negative. Students with a negative balance are able to purchase meals up to a negative $10.00 balance, but will be unable to purchase a la carte items. When students in grades K-6 reach a $10.00 negative, they will need to pack a lunch or bring money to purchase a lunch until the debt is paid. Otherwise, the student will receive a cheese sandwich and milk for lunch. If the problem persists, the parents will be notified accordingly.
Students in grades 7-12 are verbally notified when their account balance reaches $5.00 or below. When students in grades 7-12 reach a balance of $0.00, they will not be permitted to charge any additional meals or a la carte items. With a balance of $0.00 students need to pack a lunch, bring money to purchase a lunch, or add money to their lunch account. If a student does not pack a lunch, bring money, or add money to their account, he/she will receive a cheese sandwich and milk for lunch. If the problem persists, the parents will be notified accordingly.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
