Dear Families, The District is considering reinstating its early release days this January - May. This would mean 7 early release days on the following Wednesdays: 01/13; 02/3; 03/03; 03/24; 04/07; 05/05; 05/26. The Elementary Schools would release early at about 1:15PM. And, the Middle and High Schools would release early at about noon. Before doing so, we would like to understand how this will impact your family in these unique times. Transportation will be for those who currently ride buses. The primary purpose for this time is the same as in previous years - to work with teachers in supporting the educational needs of your children. Given the unique demands of the times, this professional time is especially important for our teachers. School lunch would be served either on site or as a "grab and go" on these days. Remote learning families would continue to access school lunch by way of curbside pick up. Your Response by Tuesday, December 15th is appreciated. Thank you! https://forms.gle/9tLeHyYXrVr8yw9UA

District Nutrition Staff at Waterboro Elementary School promoting free school meals today!
Tuesday, November 3rd is a district wide remote learning day. If you need meals for your children for this day please submit a request by November 1st with the link below. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe-AeaVD4_9f9QAgaiIvFu_K4Q-Yxz9F42_X5DrU0gaA8nx7Q/viewform?usp=sf_link
November menus are now posted!! https://www.rsu57.org/o/rsu-57/browse/67914
On October 9th the USDA announced the extension of free meals to all children 18 and under through the end of the 2020-2021 school year! Free meals consist of breakfast and lunch and must be a complete reimbursable meal in order to meet federal guidelines. Enrolled, in-person learners may receive free meals while attending school in-person. Remote learners, home schooled children, and any child 18 and under that is not of school age may pre-order meals for pick up by submitting the following form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdADGQNbsN3SNxOr23avHOMyeoo-sw39h5Nq6C0bTgL57MERg/viewform?usp=sf_link RSU 57 highly recommends that all households continue to submit free and reduced applications for meal price benefits if you feel you may qualify. Each school district receives federal and state funding based on the percentage of students that are approved for free or reduced meal prices. Under counting those eligible for this program could harm many educational programs we rely on to serve our students. Regardless of whether your student chooses to receive school meals or not, it is critical that we properly account for all who are eligible. If you have any questions related to free meals, meal price benefit applications or remote meal pick up please contact the School Nutrition Department directly by calling (207)247-3221 x2257 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

In order to decrease the amount of meal payments being handled by students and staff, we encourage all families to sign up for our online payment system. For more information on this service please visit the document section on our website. Documents>Information>School Nutrition Did you know... that you can earn one free bonus meal when you deposit $50.00 or more onto a student meal account. For example, a payment of $50 will be charged a fee of $2.49, but in return you will receive one bonus meal on the student meal account. The value of the meal exceeds the value of the fee. Bonus meals are automatically applied at lunch once earned.
