STePS Back to School Kickoff Fundraiser

As we prepare for the end of this school year, STePS is already hard at work planning for next year! Our first fundraiser event is a virtual Pampered Chef party. There are two ways to party. You can join our virtual FB group party where you can interact with our consultant and ask any questions you may have about the products and play some fun games. Or you can check out the shopping link. As an added bonus, during the month of May Pampered Chef will be doubling all donations!

We hope you will join us and invite all of your friends and family to party with us while raising funds to kick off the 2022-2023 school year.

Food Service Changes for 22-23

Changes to Free Lunch program

Earlier this year, the Federal Government announced that they will no longer provide funding to school districts to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students during the 2022-23 school year. We recognize this change will impact some of our families and want to inform you before the new school year starts. Medina City Schools will continue to offer free and reduced meals to students in need as we did before the pandemic, following the same Federal guidelines. Families must complete a form to enroll. These forms will not be available until AFTER July 1st. We will provide more details in June.

Meal Price increase for the 2022-2023 school year

An increase in meal prices was approved at last night’s Board meeting. The prices starting next school year will be:

Elementary School $3.25

Middle School and High School

Regular $3.50

Deluxe $3.75

Adult Lunch $4.75
