Effective August 31st, 2020: The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended the availability of free lunches for ALL students up to September 30, 2021. As a result, we temporarily deactivated the online payment portal which is used to add dollars to your student's lunch account.
Important Changes to Food Services due to Covid-19
Breakfast is available before school at Shrewsbury High School, Oak Middle School, Sherwood Middle School, and Calvin Coolidge School. Breakfast is free for all students.
Due to the restrictions of Covid and guidance published by the Mass. Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, we will be offering a modified/simplified lunch menu.
Offerings will typically include a brown-bag lunch with a cold or hot sandwich, fruit, vegetable and milk.
There will be no fruit bars, salad bars, nor a la carte items for sale. For example, individual cookies, chips, milk, bottled waters are not for sale.
Snacks are not available for individual sale. Students should pack any additional snack items they wish to eat during lunch.
Due to a current extension of USDA regulations lunch will be free of charge to all students up to the end of September 2021.
Seating and Health Protocols
The cafeterias, gymnasiums, and/or other designated spaces will be utilized for lunch in order to maximize space and allow for six feet distancing.
Students will sit at desks or tables that are spaced six feet apart, facing the same direction.
Desks will be numbered and students will be assigned to sit at the same desk each day to assist in contact tracing if necessary.
Masks will be removed after students are seated for eating, and replaced before leaving seat.
Students will wash/sanitize hands before and after lunch.
