Students to benefit from free school meals next school year

ARLINGTON, VA – The non-profit School Nutrition Association (SNA) commended the Biden Administration for extending several COVID-19 waivers to ensure students can continue to safely receive free school meals through the 2021/22 School Year. SNA members had called for waiver extensions to provide safe, equal access to healthy school meals and address continued pandemic meal service challenges.

“These waiver extensions will ensure hungry students can receive the meals they need to succeed next school year,” said SNA President Reggie Ross, SNS. “School nutrition staff can focus on safely serving students without having to worry about meal applications or collecting payments. Families struggling to make ends meet will know their children are nourished and ready to learn.”

Covid Updates

Our school district continues to be dedicated to keeping our students and staff healthy and safe so the following guidelines will continue:


•Mask mandate is still in effect!


• Continue to wear masks at all times in the hallways, classrooms and throughout the school. Many students are arriving at school without a mask. Parents, please ensure that your students come to school with clean masks to wear everyday.


• Masks may be removed while eating lunch.


•Students should not arrive at school too early prior to doors opening, as supervision of social distancing is not always possible.


•Encourage students and staff to continue good hand washing procedures and maintaining 3-6 foot distance.


•As of April 5th, students 16 or older are eligible to be vaccinated or obtain appointments for vaccination. Parents are encouraged to check with their health care providers if a student has preexisting conditions.


•If students develop symptoms, such as a low grade fever after vaccination, we would like them to stay home and isolate until side effects have resolved.


•It is difficult to tell if a student (unvaccinated) has allergy symptoms or Covid. The only way to know is to have them tested for COVID. A fully vaccinated person has a little more leeway. Consider testing if symptoms occur after close contact with a known positive exposure. Please forward COVID-19 test results to your student’s school nurse.
