Board Briefs & District 44 Update
Back to School Edition
Start of 2022-2023 School Year
Change in Lunch Prices for the 2022-2023 School Year
The USDA waiver that allowed most school districts to serve free breakfast and free lunch to all students throughout the pandemic has expired. Therefore, this fall, Lombard District 44 will transition back to traditional meal service at our schools.
What does that mean for your family?
- Breakfast and Lunch is still available at all K-8 schools
- The cost of breakfast, which includes milk, is $1.75.
- The cost of a hot lunch, which includes milk, is $3.10 per day.
- The cost of milk alone is $.50.
- Monthly menus will soon be posted on the district website which is www.sd44.org > Parents > Lunch Menus.
There will be paid, free, and reduced-priced eligibilities for students
Prices for your child will be based on your household’s meal benefit status.
The application for free and reduced meals can be found on our website SD44.org > Parents>Food Service or by clicking here.
You can find more information by clicking here and scrolling down to the category "Additional Individual Documents."
Families should also be aware that schools are also facing many of the same challenges with the supply chain in receiving necessary food items. When this happens, school nutrition
professionals will do everything they can to serve an alternate, healthy option to your child. We will continue to communicate with you when this occurs.
Join Our Team!
Starting pay is $15/hour plus many benefits! More information can be found here.
