Spartan Time (formally known as PowerHour) & Lunches
Over the past three days Sumner High's Administrative team met with each graduating class. Our purpose was to discuss the challenges of PowerHour from last year, why we move to three lunches, and our next steps together. It is our goal to move to a more structured one lunch system that we will be calling Spartan Time. This time will allow students to receive academic support, join clubs/activities during the day with more structure than PowerHour previously had. In order to earn Spartan Time we need to see students taking ownership of their behaviors in the classroom, hallways, and bathrooms. Our areas of focus consisted of the cleanliness of the school, bathroom expectations, and getting to each class on time everyday.
We will be communicating with students weekly on our performance as a collective whole and believe that we will transition to Spartan Time in the near future. Expect future updates about our progress towards Spartan Time and details about its structure.

Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications:
All families who may be eligible are encouraged to apply for free or reduced-price meals. Applications must be resubmitted each year within the first 30 days of school. Qualified students receive the benefit for the full school year, even if the family’s financial situation changes.
Families receiving Basic Food, TANF, FDPIR or Medicaid may be Direct Certified for free or reduced-price meal benefits. These families will receive a letter in the mail from Child Nutrition Services notifying them of their student’s meal eligibility by mid-August. If a family receives such a letter, they do not need to submit an application.
Applications may be submitted online through Family Access. Start by selecting your student’s name, then Food Service, then click the Applications button, then Add Application. The system will walk you through the process and is very easy to use. Once Child Nutrition has processed the application, you will receive a notification letter by mail or email.
Printed applications are also available at each school and online at: 22-23 Application for Free or Reduced-Price Meals.
Students who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals may receive reduced school fees, however, parental consent is required. For online applications, the option to grant consent to release the students’ eligibility status is part of the application process. For others, the form is available at: 22-23 Consent Form
Since meal accounts have not been used for some time, we encourage families to check their student account balances before school starts. Families can make online payments to student accounts anytime using Visa or Mastercard through Family Access. There are also options to receive email notices when student balances are low. A $0.75 per student transaction fee will be applied at checkout for payments.
Cash or checks are accepted as a form of payment in the school cafeterias during breakfast or lunch.
Monthly print menus, and the link to our interactive online menus are on the Child Nutrition Services website here: Lunch Menus
