2021-2022 Meal Service

Access to free meals for all enrolled students will extend through the 2021-22 school year. We are in the process of navigating these changes for the upcoming school year, but wanted to provide an update with our current knowledge of meal service for next school year. As it stands we anticipate the below:

  • All students enrolled in Jeffco Public Schools will have access to breakfast and/or lunch meals at no cost, regardless of free and reduced meal eligibility.

  • Free meals will focus on enrolled students and will not be extended to the larger community of youth ages 1-18 not enrolled in Jeffco.

  • Currently, we plan to return to traditional cafeteria line service at our school sites. At this time, we do not anticipate the need for students to eat in their classrooms (unless participating in the Breakfast in the Classroom program), for classroom order forms to be used, or for delivery of meals.

  • A la carte options will be available for purchase at school sites.

  • There is the possibility that collection of Free and Reduced-Price Meal applications will be paused during the 2021-22 school year and another method of collecting this information for school funding, fee waivers and other purposes will be established. Additional updates to come.

  • Menus will continue to be accessed through the School Café website.

Service de Comidas 2021-22

El acceso a comidas gratis para todos los estudiantes matriculados se extenderá hasta el año escolar 2021-22. Estamos en el proceso de adecuarnos a estos cambios para el próximo año escolar, pero queríamos proporcionar esta información sobre el servicio de comidas en anticipación a el próximo año escolar. En su estado actual, prevemos lo siguiente:

  • Todos los estudiantes inscritos en las Escuelas Públicas de Jeffco tendrán acceso a comidas de desayuno y/o almuerzo sin costo alguno, sin importar la elegibilidad para comidas gratis y reducidas.
  • Las comidas gratis se enfocarán en los estudiantes matriculados y no se extenderán a la comunidad más grande de jóvenes de 1 a 18 años de edad no matriculados en las Escuelas de Jeffco.
  • Actualmente, planeamos regresar al servicio tradicional de la línea de comedores en nuestros sitios escolares. En este momento, no anticipamos la necesidad de que los estudiantes coman en sus salones de clase (a menos que participen en el programa de desayuno en el salón de clase), para el uso de los formularios de orden del salón o para la entrega de comidas.
  • Las opciones a la carta estarán disponibles para comprar en las escuelas.
  • Existe la posibilidad de que la recolección de solicitudes de comida gratis y a precio reducido se ponga en pausa durante el año escolar 2021-22 y se establecerá otro método de recolección de esta información para fondos escolares, exenciones de honorarios y otros propósitos. Actualizaciones adicionales próximamente.
  • Los menús continuarán siendo accesibles a través del sitio web de School Café (englés).
