Meal Service Changes for On-Campus Instruction

Nutrition Services is excited to welcome back students on Tuesday, April 6. We are working hard on our preparations and had to make some temporary changes to accommodate on-campus meal programming. Nutrition Services' “School Meals 2 Go” curbside program will not be offered Tuesday, April 6. Curbside service will resume at all sites on Wednesday, April 7.

For all Cohort A and B students participating in in-person instruction:

  • There will be no on-campus eating of breakfast and lunch.
  • Students may take a meal kit home at the end of instruction on their designated cohort days. All meals will continue to be free for students.
  • Meal kits contain breakfast, lunch, supper and snack for the day they are on campus.
  • For off-campus cohort instruction days - students may pick up meals curbside at their school of attendance, 30 minutes after morning synchronous instruction ends.

For all Cohort C students, and children not yet enrolled in school (up to age 18):

  • Cohort C and community meals will be offered at Twin Rivers school sites curbside - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
  • Meal service starts 30 minutes after morning synchronous instruction ends and will be for one hour.
  • We ask that families visit one school site only.

Every Wednesday, distance-learning day for all students:

  • Curbside meal service will be from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at the student’s school of attendance.
  • Students will receive a 3 day meal kit on Wednesdays.
  • We ask that families visit one school site only, if picking up for multiple children, however, one meal kit per child.

With curbside service, we will continue to encourage families to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by continuing to wear a face covering, wash hands often, and stay home if you are sick. Lastly, we ask that families help maintain COVID-19 safety and social distancing measures by not congregating at the school site once you receive meal kits.

PK/TK Eligibility Changes!

  • The State of California has recently announced that parents will no longer be able to choose Preschool for their Transitional Kindergarten (TK) eligible children. A child is eligible for TK if they have their fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2 (inclusive) (EC 48000[c]). In the past, parents had a choice of sending their TK eligible child to preschool; however, this will not be the case starting school year 2021-22.
