The Sutton School Lunch Program
The school lunch program here at Sutton Public Schools is undergoing some new and exciting changes. In order to better meet the new federal nutrition guidelines, our school's menus will be undergoing some major changes. Over the next few months, the food service staff will be trying out many new recipes which will include a lot of "scratch cooking". Meals will be more home-made which will help us to better control the nutritional content of our meals and serve more appealing and exciting food. You may notice certain meals on the menus are designated as "homemade"- this denotes that these meals are being made from scratch.
I hope you understand that with change come many challenges and struggles which will in turn lead to success. My goal is to make a healthier, more nutritionally sound menu for the upcoming school year that will also appeal to all of our students. I appreciate any and all feedback whether it be negative or positive. I would love student feedback as well... we are making these changes to better your health and to make you excited to eat in our cafeterias.
The National School Lunch Program: The National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs are regulated by the state and federal government. All funds are derived from federal, state and money collected from students and staff, no funds come from the school or tax payers.
2012-13 Nutrition Standards for the National School Lunch Program: New meal patterns have been developed specifically for certain age groups; Grades K-5, Grades 6-8 and Grades 9-12. Therefore, each age group has a specific amount of fruit, vegetable, grain, meats/meat alternative and milk servings that need to be met and not exceeded on a weekly basis. Along with these new serving size regulations, regulations on the daily amount of calories, saturated fat and sodium have also been mandated.
These are just the new regulations that have been set in place for this current school year. Over the next 10 years, new regulations and guidelines will continually be added and amended in order to make the School Lunch Program the healthiest option for students of all ages. The long term goal is to attest the rate of childhood obesity and the numerous co-morbidity's that go along with it. This will be a learning process for everyone, including the State and Federal government, school administration and staff, food purveyors, parents and of course the students.
Online Payments for School Lunch
A few months ago, we moved to My School Bucks for online lunch payments. Usernames and passwords for parents are the same ones from MyNutrikids.com. Parents that did not previously have an account with MyNutrikids.com need to register for a new account on mySchoolBucks.com. Here, you have the ability to check your child's account history, balance, set up email reminders for low balances and make payments online.
-The convenience fee per online transaction is $1.95.
- Acceptable Payment Methods:
- Payments in the form of cash and/or personal check are also permissible. Please make checks payable to: Sutton School Lunch Program and include the student ID# and student name on the check. One check may be used to fund various accounts by denoting how much money should go into which account.
- The MyKids (MyNutrikids.com) Service Agreement will be replaced with an agreement from Heartland Payment Systems. This agreement covers provisions from each of the credit card brands, as well as various legal requirements.
Free & Reduced Meals: Free and reduced meals are available to students unable to pay the full price of meals according to criteria based on household size and income. For families meeting federal income guidelines, meals at school can be obtained for little or no cost. Applications are available at each school or by clicking below. A new application needs to be completed and submitted at the beginning of each school year or when a family's financial situation changes during the year. If applications are not submitted by the beginning of the school year, any accumulated debt on a child's account is still your responsibility. Prior debts will not be eliminated once an application has been submitted and accepted. Only one application needs to be submitted per family. Please make sure these forms are filled in completely before submitting.
There is no overt identification of students who receive a free or reduced price meals. Our computerized point of service system uses the same format for all students. Accounts are automatically set up for students who qualify for free meals. Students select meals and enter their number at the cashier.
If your child has a major FOOD ALLERGEN, please notify the school nurse or the cafeteria of the allergy.
The Food Service Director is able to put an allergy warning on a student's account. If a child tries to purchase something that he/she is allergic to it will notify the cashier immediately.
