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.

Maine's Department of Health and Human Services has received approval from Food and Nutrition Services to partner with the Maine Department of Education to provide a Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefit to school-aged children who normally receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch at Maine schools. This benefit will help to replace the value of school meals while students are learning remotely. Families currently receiving SNAP or TANF and have a child aged five through eighteen will receive a P-EBT benefit on their Pine Tree card in May. Families who are not receiving SNAP or TANF and have a child who is eligible for free or reduced school lunch can request the P-EBT benefit by calling 1-855-797-4357. Some household information will be requested by a phone agent who will then verify eligibility with the Maine Department of Education. Families who have not yet been found eligible for free or reduced lunch can apply through their local school district at the following link. www.myschoolapps.com Separate P-EBT cards will be issued for eligible families who do not already have a Pine Tree card. Please call our office if you cannot access the online application and we will mail you a paper copy. (207)247-3221 x2257

We're All in This Together at Waterboro Elementary School! Check out the video from WES staff to students: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BorDqFpSmss&feature=youtu.be
Catch WES Staff waving to students "aboard" the nutritional delivery buses on the Waterboro routes!
In addition to the two open meal sites at Line Elementary and Massabesic Middle School, we will be implementing a free meal delivery service via specific bus routes starting on Monday, March 23rd. These bus routes have been set up to bring food to the areas in our communities with the highest need. In order to keep the meals as safe as possible and to allow time for staff to safely prepare the meals, we will be doing two deliveries per day. One delivery in the morning for breakfast and one delivery in the afternoon for lunch. The bus routes will run Monday through Friday. Please visit the RSU 57 website or app to access the route map and approximate delivery times. Students will have the option to receive breakfast and lunch each day and on Fridays they will receive two additional meals for the weekend. Our focus is to get meals closer to the students in our district that desperately need them. If your student is in need of meals and you cannot access the daily bus routes or the open meal sites please call 207-247-3221 x2257 and we will do our very best to assist you. The meals available through our two meal sites as well as our specific area bus routes are available to all children 18 and under, free of charge. We want to be able to offer all children in our district the nutrition they need during this closure. In order to continue doing so, we do ask that only families that are in high need receive these meals. We will continue this service as long as our food supply and staffing needs can meet the demand.
Wow, what a fantastic start to Continuous Learning! Here is a WES PreK class meeting on Zoom to learn together with friends. Thank you all for your efforts to continue your child's learning with us. What a wonderful community we have here!
