2021-2022 School Meal Programs Information

Meals for Students on Quarantine in 2021-2022

If your student(s) are identified as close contacts to a positive COVID case at any point during the year and are told to quarantine by the Department of Health, then you have the option to order and pick up district provided breakfast/lunch for them during the quarantine period.

Use the following Meal Order Forms to order breakfast/lunch for your quarantined students. You will need to order meals the day before you will need them (ex. if you need meals for Wednesday, order on Tuesday). Meal pick up is Monday-Friday from 8:30-9:00 AM at the Maple Hill High School Cafeteria Doors.

A Note on Free & Reduced Lunch Eligibility in 2021-2022

Under USDA guidance, SCSD will again offer free breakfast and free lunch to every student for the 2021-22 school year. The district will also continue to collect and process free and reduced-price meal applications to establish eligibility for Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) only. All applications that will be collected will be used to certify students for free and reduced-price meals, specifically for purposes of PEBT only.

Seamless Summer Option

As of November 30, 2020, the District is a Seamless Summer Option site. Anyone under the age of 18 who is in need of a meal can obtain one. Food distribution is currently located at the High School, but if Castleton Elementary School is a better location please call ahead to arrange pick-up of meals.

For more information contact Lisa Bryda via phone (518-732-2297 Ext. 2319) or email (lbryda@schodack.k12.ny.us)

My School Bucks The Simple Way to Pay

MySchoolBucks Fee Increase Effective July 29, 2021

Please Note: The MySchoolBucks program fee will increase from $2.49 to $2.75 for all cafeteria credit/debit card payments beginning on July 29, 2021.
