School starts on Monday for our Year Round schools and we hope everyone gets off to a great start for the new school year. Today’s update provides information on curb-side meal services, independent study programs and a new survey that will be sent out to our stakeholders to gather input required by the state.
Beginning on Monday, August 3rd, lunch and breakfast meals will be available for pick-up for students enrolled at a school on the year-round (YR) schedule. Students that attend a school on either a Traditional (T) or Modified Traditional (Mod. T) school calendar schedule may start picking up meals on Thursday, August 13th. Meals should be picked up at a student’s school of enrollment. For students who attend a school that is not offering Curb-Side Meal Service, meals may be picked up from a school within the same region.
- Meal pick-up is available Mondays through Fridays from 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
- Meals should be picked up at a child’s school of enrollment or school within the same region. If a family has multiple EGUSD students, meals may be picked up from the school where the majority of the students attend.
- Proof of enrollment at an EGUSD school will be required for the initial pickup. (Please see additional details for meal pickup)
- Meals will be pre-packaged, cold meals to be consumed at home. Families will be offered a choice of meat or vegetarian option.
- Qualified students that are eligible for free or reduced-price meals will be waived the meal price of either $1.75 (breakfast) or $2.75 (lunch).
- Curb-side meal service will continue as long as Full Distance Learning is in effect.
For parents interested in learning more about EGUSD Independent Study programs, these programs are available through Las Flores High School and the Elk Grove USD (K-8) Virtual Academy. The Independent Study program assigns students to one teacher who develops an individualized learning plan for students to make progress on their learning goals and monitors students’ independent learning progress. To learn more about these programs, contact your school’s teacher or visit the schools noted above that offer an Independent Study program.
Also starting on Monday, as part of our stakeholder engagement process for the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan 2020, the District will distribute a new online parent and staff survey. In addition to demographic questions, each survey has 6 open-ended questions for respondents to make suggestions around key priority areas: in-person instruction, distance learning, learning loss, mental, social and emotional health, student engagement and meal service. Your continued attention and responses to past surveys and ongoing engagement has been helpful, useful, instructive and greatly appreciated.
Thank you and stay safe and stay healthy,
