Cafeterias now offering more FRESH Fruit & Veggies!

We are so happy to announce that we are now able to provide a bigger variety of FRESH fruits and veggies to our Elida students! We are able to use the Dept. of Defense Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program. Seasonal offerings will be available all year to all buildings. All of the items are American grown and will include cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, watermelon, just to name a few. We have had the program before, but now we will have acess to a BIGGER VARIETY for our kids! Thank you to Food Service Director Mariah Ross for her work.

Safety Training for Cafeteria Staff

As part of our staff professional development sessions on Monday, our food service department received safety instruction from American Township Fire Department. They were given hands on training on using a fire extinguisher. This is just another way that Elida Schools makes staff and student safety the number one priority! Hear the story from Your Hometown Stations Here. Thank you to American Twp. Fire Department for your instruction.
