Food Service

One of the most important ways in which schools can help children perform better in classrooms is to provide them with the nutrition necessary for healthy minds and bodies. To that end, Schuylerville Central School District provides breakfast and lunch for Elementary School, Middle School and High School students. If you cannot access any of the lunch menus below, please contact the main office of your child’s school.

Menus

February

Free and Reduced-Price School Meals/Milk

The USDA waiver allowing all meals in schools to be served at no cost expired in September, 2022. Breakfast and lunch will still be available to all students; however, they will not be free for all students. Families will need to complete a Free and Reduced-price Meals Application to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. The fastest, easiest way to apply is online; applications may also be picked up from the school main offices or printed from the district website (see below for options). Those who qualify for reduced price meals no longer have a co-pay due to state funding. Students who do not qualify for free or reduced-priced meals must pay full price for breakfast and lunch. 

Meal Charge Policy

The Schuylerville Central School District will never deny a student a meal due to lack of funds. However, prompt payment is requested and notices will be sent if a student accrues meal charges. A la carte purchases (snacks, drinks & doubles) must be paid at time of purchase. If you have any questions, please contact Director of Food Service Sarah Keen at keens@schuylerville.org or 518-695-3255 ext 2290.

    School Wellness Policy

    All schools participating in the National School Breakfast/Lunch Program must establish a local school wellness policy that includes specific goals for nutrition promotion and education, physical activity, and other school-based activities. In addition, standards and nutrition guidelines for all foods and beverages available on the school campus during the school day must remain consistent with federal regulations designed to promote student health and reduce childhood obesity. School districts must meet and provide a triennial assessment report that describes the extent to which it is complying with the wellness policy. Community members and stakeholders are invited to join the district wellness committee. If interested, please reach out to Sarah Keen at keens@schuylerville.org.
