Wow what a fall it has been. We have the 2020 November Nutrition News (English, Spanish and Somali) ready for viewing.

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.

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.

Student and Parent/Guardian Fall Sports Surveys

Thanks to all of our students and families who participated in Fall Athletic programs at EVHS this year. It was most certainly an “unknown” if we would have or season or get through a full season, but thankful for our students to have the opportunity. For those who have concluded their seasons already or will be in the next couple of weeks with their culminating Section Tournaments we ask that you take a few minutes to fill out our STUDENT and PARENT/GUARDIAN Surveys.

(New) One More Weekend! EVHS Theater Department 2020-21 Presents: "The Perfect Ending"

Due to popular demand, there will be another opportunity to view Eastview's virtual fall play, “The Perfect Ending”.

Mother has a meatloaf in the oven and is well on her way to having the perfect dinner party, but one thing stands in her way—the end of the world as we know it! Is that going to stop her perfect party from happening? Not at all! Like moths to a flame, the house lights are attracting all types of unexpected guests. Join her in The Perfect Ending as she juggles a grease monkey, looting neighbors, an insurance salesman, her son's juvenile delinquent girlfriend and many other zany characters in an attempt to maintain a perfect house and to be the absolute perfect hostess, right up until the very last moment. Will the world come to an end, or will Mother get to have her perfect dinner party?

This production will be available to stream online on November 20 and 21 at 7PM, and November 22 at 2pm on the EVHS Performing Arts website.
