The Schodack Central School District food service team is looking forward to serving our students nutritious meals for the upcoming 2020-21 school year. As with all things, food service will look different and we have important information to share with our students and families.
Recent federal and state decisions now allow the District to temporarily serve free meals to all students K-12 until at least December 31, 2020. This decision is subject to change at the federal government’s discretion. The District still requires that households complete applications for free and reduced meals as usual and return them as soon as possible in the event that federal and state guidelines change. At this time, one breakfast and one lunch each day will be provided at no cost. Additional food items will be charged.
The District will provide meals to in-person students as well as remote students, whether they are fully remote or hybrid.
See below for a breakdown of what students will encounter depending on their mode of instruction.

Students will access a link to a Google order form (below), which must be completed each Thursday by 5:00 p.m. for the upcoming week.
