SUMMER MEALS PROGRAM INFORMATION 2017
Believe it or not, summer is fast approaching! During the summer, there is an opportunity for students called “The Summer Child Nutrition Program” where they can continue to eat breakfast and lunch that is provided by our schools.
The Summer Child Nutrition Program ensures that children continue to learn and grow, and to have access to nutritious meals during the summer months when schools are closed. It is a key building block in our community for healthy, happy children who are ready to learn. All children and teens ages 1-18 may participate in this program and eat breakfast and lunch for free.
Following is a list of schools and the dates and times they will serve breakfast and lunch during the summer. Each school will serve meals to the community Monday through Thursday only. There is no program Monday and Tuesday, July 3 and 4, 2017; and Monday, July 24 at Independence High School.
Timpanogos Elementary School
Franklin Elementary School
Provo Peaks Elementary School
Spring Creek Elementary School
Independence High School
Please note that meals must be eaten by the children in the school cafeteria. Parents/Adults may purchase a breakfast for $2.00, and a lunch for $4.00, and enjoy a meal with their children. Please be aware that the menu may change due to product availability.
MEAL PRICING FOR SY 2016/2017
Pricing for meals and milk will stay the same for school year 16/17. Prices for breakfast are as follows: $1.50 for grades K-12, and $0.30 for those qualified for reduced price. The price for an Adult Breakfast is $2.00.
Provo City School District Child Nutrition Program utilizes the NutriKids POS system.
Students are assigned a district student ID when entering PCSD. This ID number stays with the student until he/she graduates.
If your child has qualified for free or reduced meal prices, this information is noted in the system, and the meal will be processed just as it is for all other students without any special indication to the students. You will need to fill out a new free/reduced application for this school year. Please do so as soon as possible. We suggest online application be made. Please submit paper applications to the PCSD Child Nutrition Office located in the Student Services Building at 280 W 940 N in Provo.
If you are concerned about a food allergy that your son/daughter has, please contact the school Child Nutrition Manager to discuss this and request the proper forms to be filled out by your son/daughter's Doctor with this information. If indicated, a warning will appear on the cashiers’ screen for a review of the items on the student’s tray.
Question: What will stop the student from purchasing more than the parent allows?
Answer: If this is a problem with your child, simply notify the Child Nutrition Clerk at your students school in writing with your limitations, and they will enter it into the system.
Example: A student desires to purchase 10 of our delicious meals and you only permit one per day, information will be placed in the system and the school will comply with your wishes.
