B-C-S Food Service Department Monthly Meal Madness Q & A
Be sure to check in on social media for a monthly Q&A from our Food Services Department. We also are encouraging your questions or concerns to be answered by our Food Service Director, Tracy Rusch.
1) Did the current administration scale-back the restrictions that were set in place through the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act that was introduced by the Obama administration?
Currently, the guidelines that have already gone into effect have NOT been revoked. However, the HHFKA sought to change restrictions gradually over several years, with the next level of changes set to take effect in the 2018-2019 school year. THE REQUIREMENTS SET TO TAKE EFFECT IN THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR (AND YEARS BEYOND) HAVE BEEN LIFTED. This means that we will still be required to follow the current guidelines, but will not be required to make further changes to sodium, fat, and calorie requirements. USDA is expected to release further instruction regarding regulations in the 2019-2020 school year after conducting more research.
2) Why can’t my child substitute a bottled water for a milk with a school lunch?
Food and drink substitutions may only be made by offering items of the same nutritional value as the component being replaced. Because bottled water does not have the same nutritional value, it may not be offered in place of milk. If a student needs to have a meal component substituted because of medical concern or disability, a licensed medical professional must provide documentation. Contact the Food Service Department at firstname.lastname@example.org with any specific questions.
3) Who determines which “extras” or a la carte items may be sold at school?
The HHFKA set into place “smart snack” guidelines, according to grade level, that must be used to determine if a product is allowed to be sold in schools. The guidelines are meant to promote items that are low in sugar, sodium, and fat, and rich in whole grains. Manufacturers have since adjusted the ingredients and serving sizes of many products to comply with these restrictions.
4) How can I monitor the “extras” or a la carte items that my student is purchasing?
Monitoring your students’ meal purchases is easy and free! You can create an account at www.PayForIt.net to view purchases. If you determine that your child needs to have some restrictions placed on their account, you may contact the Food Service department at email@example.com with the specific request, and we can place a restriction on the account that will help prevent students from over-purchasing in the lunch room.
5) How can I help prevent waste in the school lunch room?
B-C-S has an “offer vs. serve” policy in the lunchroom that allows students to refuse some meal components that they dislike. According to the policy, the student may choose 3 of the 5 total meal components, as long as 1 of the three chosen includes a fruit or vegetable. The school must charge the board accepted school meal price regardless of the components chosen, and must charge for each component at a la carte pricing if the student does not choose to take a fruit or vegetable along with their meal.
Tune in every Monday for #MakeADifferenceMonday where we will feature a stakeholder, student, or fellow alumni answering "Five questions for B-C-S"
This week B-C-S is featuring, 8th grade Science teacher, Brad Schlagheck
1. What grade and subject do you teach? How many years have you been teaching?
- I teach 8th grade Science at the High School.
This is my eleventh year teaching at B-C-S.
2. How does technology make teaching more simple or difficult?
- Technology makes it much easier to distribute information and resources/assignments to students. Students who are out sick or at appointments can find the material that they missed even before they return to class. The advantages have far outweighed the negatives.
3. What accomplishment fills you with pride so far this year?
- Every year I really look forward to our Science Day at the high school. It's a great opportunity to see the maturity of our seniors as they lead the eighth graders through learning stations. It is a great display of the kind of young people our district is blessed with.
4. What is your favorite dish from the cafeteria?
- I usually spend my lunches trying to get caught up on paperwork and grading, so I don't really make it to the cafeteria often. But, I enjoy most all things food...
5. What are some of your hobbies you enjoy outside of school?
- I enjoy spending time with my wife and my two daughters. They are always finding interesting ways to keep me busy. We also enjoy raising sheep and spending time outdoors.
What's Going On At RC Waters Elementary?
Reminder! RC Waters Christmas Music Programs will be Monday, December 11 for grades K & 1 (6pm & 7pm), and Thursday, December 14 for grades 2 & 3 (6pm & 7pm). Hope to see you there!
Kindergarten students enjoyed playing a Make Ten game during math exchanges this week!
Students in first grade used STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to construct a stool tall enough and stable enough to hold the Christmas elf.
This third grade class was "shooting to learn" with this comprehension game that earns students a chance to shoot the ball if they are able to correctly answer a question and cite text evidence!
Several of our classrooms have transformed and are spreading some holiday spirit!
