During this Thanksgiving holiday break, we thank you for the opportunity to work with your children. This year has demanded the very best of us; our patience, grit, creativity, grace, and attentiveness to each other. While distancing has created a sense of loss for us, we continue to do all we can to inspire our students and help them learn. We appreciate all you have and are doing at home to provide for the benefit of our students; we know it is a lot. On behalf of the faculty and staff at Eastview High School, thank you! Our gratitude for you is shown in our committed work to do our best to measure up to the expectations of you and our extraordinary learning community. Keep doing what you do and being who you are, Eastview! We are better together and we are thankful for all of you!

News from District 196 Food and Nutrition

This month's newsletter contains the 7 day meal kit survey (no charge for children 18 and under), explanation of additional funding for schools that comes when people apply and are approved for the Free and Reduced-Priced meals, and our online Nutrislice Menu.

Thank you for supporting our department and fueling our students for success during the distance learning days.

Below are a couple helpful links for your convenience.

High School Distance Learning Meal Kit Pickup - Sign Up Today!

ALL secondary students are eligible for free seven-day meal kits to support their distance learning. To best meet the needs of our families, meal kits will be available for pick up near the middle or high schools’ entrance doors at these times:

· Monday 4:00pm- 5:30pm

· Tuesday 7:30am- 9:00am

· Wednesday 10:00am- 11:00am (Digital Academy Meals will continue)

· Thursday 7:30am- 9:00am

· Friday 7:30am- 9:00am

Look for the banner and sign for the distribution location. Families with children in multiple schools are encouraged to pick-up all seven-day meal kits at one school.

Initially, families will be asked to complete this Seven-Day Meal Kit Interest Survey. This will allow the Food and Nutrition Services department to prepare the number of meal kits needed. The survey only needs to be completed once.

The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture has authorized funding for schools to provide meals at no charge to children, 18 and younger, for the entire school year. All secondary families are encouraged to participate in this opportunity. Any child 18 and younger, or parent/guardian of a child is able pick up these seven-day meal kits. For contactless distribution, the seven-day meal kit boxes will be placed on a 6-foot table with a bag of milk on the side. Families will be able to take as many boxes as needed for their children. Food and Nutrition Staff will monitor and replenish the table as needed.
