From the Desk of Mrs. Adelman

It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to the 2022-23 school year! I am looking forward to my third year as the proud principal of Warwick Elementary School. As a community we will continue to provide an engaging learning environment and a school of which we can all continue to be very proud.


I hope that all of our Warwick families and staff had a wonderful relaxing and rejuvenating summer break! Ella (almost 5 year old) and Olivia (2 and 1/2 year old) kept Mr. Adelman and me very busy during the summer with trips to the beach, bike rides, and activities. I enjoyed seeing many Warwick families in Margate this summer. We enjoyed lots of ice cream, mini golf, and endless seashell collecting.


I am so excited to welcome the children, families, and staff back to school for the 2022-23 school year at Warwick Elementary. I look forward to working alongside everyone from the school and community to ensure each child will continue to feel valued at Warwick. This is an incredible community where students impress us every day, and my goal continues to center around fostering the caring environment where our staff and students are valued.


I am a strong believer in community involvement; parents, teachers, support staff, community members, and administrators all play an integral role in helping our students meet and exceed our expectations. My door is always open, and I am here to support you in any way possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions.


Sincerely,

Mrs. Amy Adelman

News and Updates from Aramark

Dear Central Bucks Families,

On behalf of CBSD Nutrition Services, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our students to the 2022 – 2023 school year! We hope you enjoyed your summer and are ready and excited to be back in school. We, as Aramark Student Nutrition, are pleased to be your school district’s food service provider.

To help prepare for your child’s return to school, we want to share important news that will affect many families: You may have heard that as of June 30, 2022, the federal waivers – administered through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) – that made it possible for us to serve school breakfast and lunch meals to students for free throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, have expired.

Ensuring that students are well fed throughout the school day is our top priority. Out of the 30 million lunches that were administered through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) prior to the waivers, almost three-quarters of those were provided either at no charge or at a reduced price. We want to remind and inform families to take advantage of these meal benefits. Income eligibility guidelines are available through the Food and Nutrition Service of USDA. If approved, eligible students can eat at a free- or reduced-price at every food station in the cafeteria.

As we reopen for the new school year, Aramark Student Nutrition is Powering Potential for students and faculty with innovations in our menus and enhancements to our overall dining operations. When your child dines with us, rest assured that we will be serving delicious, nutritious meals prepared with the utmost attention to safety. We encourage every student to fuel up with breakfast and lunch meals each day so they can be energized and prepared to succeed throughout the day, in and out of the classroom. Check out our daily menus on Nutrislice

One thing that you can do to help this important cause is to encourage your students to eat breakfast and lunch every day. The demands of the classroom can be difficult for children who are hungry, as you know. Studies indicate students who eat breakfast can concentrate better, earn higher grades, and have fewer illnesses*. We do offer various breakfast programs – either in the cafeteria or in the classroom – to ensure students can start the school day right!

(*Food Research and Action Center (FRAC). “Breakfast for Learning.” Spring 2014.)

We look forward to working for you to create a healthy learning environment for all students. To view or add money to your student’s account please visit MySchoolBucks. To apply for free or reduced-price school meals please fill out the School Lunch Application

If you’d like more information, please call our office 267-893-5752.

Sincerely,

Matthew Taglieber General Manager
Food Service Director

Free and Reduced Lunch Program Eligibility

Students who qualify for the Free and Reduced School Meals Program may also qualify for a variety of needs-based assistance based on their program eligibility. Federal law requires the family’s consent before Central Bucks School District can use or share eligibility status for purposes other than the provision of free or reduced lunch. This information will only be shared if you consent to help provide needs-based assistance to your student that may be beneficial to your family. Your decision to share or not share this information will not in any way affect your eligibility status for the Free and Reduced School Meals Program; it is completely optional.


If your student(s) qualifies for the Free and Reduced School Meals Program, you will receive a notification of a document that needs your attention in the Parent Portal. The document requests permission to use the eligibility status to qualify for various needs-based assistance and programming. You may consent for all areas listed below, decline consent to all areas, or provide partial consent.

Attention 5th and 6th Grade Parents and Guardians

5th and 6th grade math placements will be finalized when teachers return next week. The 5th and 6th grade students have not been rostered to math classes yet. You will see teachers listed on the Portal after rosters have been finalized.

Help Needed

As you prepare for the beginning of the school year, please check backpacks and home spaces for any library books, classroom books, and/or other materials. Please send any Warwick items back to school with your child(ren). Students entering 4th, 5th, and 6th grade don't forget to bring your charged laptop to and from school each day!

Student Services Department

Our Central Bucks “Guidance” Department will now be known as “Student Services” Department. We are making this name change K-12 to better represent the wide-range of services that our Department provides to students and families across the district. While we certainly provide “guidance” to students, our School Counselors, School Psychologists, Student Support Social Workers, Student Support Counselors, and Nurses provide services including academic planning; college and career planning; social and emotional programs and initiatives; physical wellness; connections to community resources (financial, housing, food, services); and educational record management. We look forward to seeing students and families in our Student Services Office!
