Volunteer gives grab and go meal to family

Detailed maps on Grab and Go Meal pick up

Dear WSD3 Families, 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve your children. We are starting a grab-and-go feeding program on August 24th for those schools in distance learning (currently junior high and high school) and D3 My Way. This is going to look a little different from the summer feeding we did at the end of last year. 

With the requirements of the National School Lunch Program, meals will need to be ordered daily using a Google Form . You will have the option to add breakfast to your grab-and-go bag that will be distributed during lunch time on the form .You will have the liberty to pick up the meals from a nearby secondary school. 

Your student's name and student ID number will be required. Also, you can pick up for more than one student at a location as long as their names and numbers are provided as well. 

The menu can be found on the WSD3 Nutrition Services website and the lunches will feature the main entree for the day. Menu is always subject to change. 

If your student has dietary restrictions please have the dietary modification form filled out that can be found on the website. The form can be turned into your child’s school or emailed directly to Nutritional Services at rochejohnj@wsd3.org. 

There is no charge for qualified Free and Reduced students. We strongly encourage you to apply for the Free and Reduced program

Full pay students will incur a charge to their accounts at the regular meal prices: 

Lunch: 

  • Elementary $2.70 
  • Jr. High $2.80 
  • High School $2.90 

Breakfast: 

  • Elementary: $1.45 
  • Jr. High $1.55 
  • High School $1.70 

We are asking that you pay your student’s lunch account online if possible. Cash and check will also be accepted, however, we will not be able to provide change. We will apply change toward your child’s account. 

Thank you, John Roche Operations Manager Nutritional Services (719) 391-3560

At-home symptom screening for parents and staff

COVID-19 Screening

Parents and guardians can use these symptom checklists to determine when to keep their child at home based on the level of COVID-19 transmission in their community (e.g. Is the community in Protect Your Neighbor or Safer at Home or Stay at Home). School staff can also use this tool to determine if they need to stay at home. ​Any student or staff diagnosed with COVID-19 or who is a close contact of a COVID-19 case should not go to school and should isolate or quarantine according to public health recommendations.

These lists refer only to ​new symptoms or a change in usual symptoms​. A student/ staff should not be kept home for usual symptoms they experience due to a chronic condition unless they are worse than usual. These guidelines are in addition to your regular school guidance (for example, a child with vomiting should also not attend school based on usual school guidance).

If your child is/ you are experiencing any potentially life-threatening symptoms please call 911.
