Protecting Student Data at Fridley Public Schools
Fridley Public Schools uses a variety of digital tools to support student learning. Depending upon the particular educational technology being used, our district may need to collect different types of student data, which is then shared with educational technology vendors through their online sites, services, and/or applications. Under Minnesota’s Student Data Privacy Act, educational technology vendors are prohibited from selling or renting a student's information or from engaging in targeted advertising using a student's information. Such vendors may only disclose student data for K-12 school purposes and other limited purposes permitted under the law. This act also requires districts to provide timely notice of the tool used, data collected, and contact information.
Download a spreadsheet that catalogs the full library of evaluated resources. If you have any questions or concerns about any digital resources used by your child, please contact your child’s teacher.

NUTRITIONAL SERVICES NEWS
Thank you to all students who have been eating breakfast and lunch with us. It has been our pleasure to serve you. We are looking for menu feedback from our families and students. If you have menu suggestions, please contact Katie Joyce at 763-502-5028 or firstname.lastname@example.org . During January students will have some Minnesota grown greens from Revol in Medford, Minnesota. Please watch the menu for those days. We will also be celebrating Chinese New Year; Tuesday, January 24. We will be serving an Asian Noodle Bowl at all schools that day.
Please remember to check your student's lunch account for purchases and adding lunch money to their account. If your child is bringing a cold lunch and would like a milk, remember the milk is not free even if your child is approved for free/reduced priced meals. Money can be added via the Campus Parent Portal using a credit or debit card. Check or cash can be added by turning money into your school's front office.
If your income has changed, remember that the Application for Educational Benefits can be completed at any time during the school year.

January menus are posted on the Nutritional Services website. You can find a monthly pdf to print or you can see the interactive Titan menu. Please note, menus are subject to change due to supply chain issues and product availability.
