Enfield Public Schools provides 
FREE MEALS FOR ALL STUDENTS & CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18

STARTING NOVEMBER 2 TO JUNE 16, 2020
 

Due to a temporary waiver available from the USDA, beginning Monday, November 2, 2020 all children age 18 and younger are eligible to receive a free breakfast and lunch through the National School Meals Program. This will apply to children who attend in-person learning, children in distance learning and children who do not attend school. This free meal program is available because of the Covid-19 pandemic and will be federally funded until the end of the current school year in June 2021.

In person students will receive full meals the same as they are now, but at no charge. There is still a charge for “milk only” purchases or if students at the Middle and High school purchase “a la carte” items. 

Remote and Hybrid students and families of preschool aged children can pick up meals at Enfield High School the same way we are currently doing, on Monday and Wednesdays, between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. While it is suggested that meals be ordered in advance, you can just show up as well and receive meals. Please contact rfrench@enfieldschools.org or at 860-253-5559 to arrange for meals. The deadline to order meals is 3:00 pm the day before meal pick up.

Please note, this is not a change to your current meal status. When the waiver expires at the end of this school year, your current meal status will be carried over for the first 30 days of the new school year. While all meals will be at no charge, you will still need to complete an application to be eligible for other  benefits associated with a Free or Reduced meal status – reduced student sport and iPad insurance fees, ERfC child care programs discounts, cable internet discounts, etc.

Also, as this waiver applies only to meals received on November 2, 2020 and AFTER. Any meals received before November 2, 2020 for which you did not have funds available and show a negative balance on MySchoolBucks are still owed. Please put money on your students account to pay off any negative balances. You can do this online on MySchoolBucks.com or send the money in to be applied at the school.
