Good Afternoon. Northwest Local Schools has received State authorization to provide all District students the opportunity to receive a free breakfast and/or lunch. In our previous notification to students and parents we were not clear in our directions for how the system will work. Please read the directions below and follow the plan that applies to your situation.
In School Students
Please click the link attached to indicate if you are considering having a school prepared breakfast or lunch. We ask you to do this only one time by 4:00 p.m. on Friday September 11th. We ask you to do this so that we know how many students may be taking advantage of this program so we can order enough groceries to accommodate everyone. We want to provide all students that want a hot meal with that opportunity but at this time we do not know how many more students will take advantage of the program. Please complete the entire form except for the last question that asks for an alternate delivery location. That question does not apply to your child since they are attending school in person. After your initial response to participation in this program your child will only have to make their daily entrée selections as previously done.
If you have not already done so, please place your order by also clicking the link on the Northwest web page. On-line students will need to order their meals every week. Please complete the form entirely and make sure that you indicate in the proper place that you are an on-line student. Your meals will be delivered to the address listed in our student information system unless you indicate otherwise on the form. You should have placed your first order by Monday September 7th for delivery on Tuesday September 15th. Orders for subsequent weeks need to be placed by 12:00 p.m. on Monday for the following weeks delivery. Deliveries will be made between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday of each week.
This program is scheduled to run through December 31, 2020 or until the funding is depleted. We will keep you informed of this situation as we are made aware of the details. Any money in your child’s lunch account will remain there and can be used to buy a second entrée, snacks, or just be available for when the program ceases.
Please continue to fill out the free and reduced application if you feel your family may qualify. An approved application allows your child’s school fees to be waived.
If you have any questions, please call 330.854.5453 or 330.854.2291.
