Winter Sports Sign-Up



FREE meals are available to ALL students through December through a USDA federal program. Parents do not need to do anything for their child to receive a free meal.

There are many high school students who are not taking advantage of this free meal opportunity at lunch, resulting in unnecessary charges to their meal account. This is because they are not taking the minimum required meal components for a free meal.

Here is an example:

A student selects Pizza, Water and Chips. They are charged for all 3 items. If this same student took only one serving of a fruit or vegetable such as carrots, a small juice box or an apple, the pizza would be FREE along with the fruit or vegetable. This would result is a savings of $2.00. The student would still be charged for the Water and Chips.

The same thing applies to ANY entree from ANY serving area. Simply by adding a fruit, vegetable (excluding grill fries) or milk, the entrée is FREE along with the fruit, vegetable or milk.

If you have any questions about this program, please call our Food Service Department at 402-537-6250.

Your child may receive a library book overdue notice at their school email this week for books from last year. After completing inventory, we have scanned every single book in our possession. Please return any overdue library materials. There will be no overdue fines. Email Mrs. Liz von Nagy with questions at
