FOOD SERVICE NOTICE:
Important Free/Reduced Lunch Information: When children receive free and/or reduced lunch, the cost of the meals is submitted for reimbursement. To count as a meal that can be reimbursed with federal funds, children have to take all parts of the meal offered so the main meal plus a vegetable and a fruit. So, if lunch is pizza, they have to take the pizza as well as make at least one fruit selection and one vegetable selection for it to qualify as a reimbursable meal. If they take just one item, then the meal does not count as reimbursable and must be charged to the child’s individual account. As part of a school department policy that went into effect on December 14, 2018, all balances must be paid in a timely manner whether or not a child is full pay or free/reduced. Children that carry a balance over $20.00 will have a limited selection – grilled cheese or sun butter plus any of the fruits/vegetables.
Also, if your child(ren) carry a balance over $20.00, you have received noticed from the Food Service Co., Sodexo and the school. Letters from the school will be sent home next week, with updated balance information.

Mr. Giusti is also sending this letter out separately on our listserve. Foods containing peanut/tree nuts are allowed at lunch. Thank you.
Reporting Illnesses to School:
Please let the school know why your child(ren) are out sick. This is the season for many different illnesses. The Flu has hit Rhode Island. Reporting will help us to track the progress of illness this winter. Thank you.

Consider filling out this annual Dept. of Education survey
The RI Dept. Of Education's SurveyWorks Opened on January 14th (See information Below)
The Rhode Island Department of Education is currently administering its yearly SurveyWorks Parent Survey, which is an opportunity for parents to provide feedback about our school and our children’s opportunities to learn. The survey results are most useful when all parents participate, so I am writing to ask you to participate in this survey.
Your views on matters like the safety of your child at school, the way students are taught, the condition of the school, and how connected you feel to this school are important. By taking this short survey you can help our school leadership and our parent-teacher organization to make improvements to our school. Responses are anonymous and cannot be linked to any individual; no one can tie your responses back to you.
You can take the short survey online between January 14th and March 31th. To take the survey, visit: surveys.panoramaed.com/ride then enter: 06116family to gain access to Tiogue School's Survey. Each school in the state has their own individual code.
