Beginning Monday, September 14, 2020, ALL Parkland students will be eligible to receive free breakfast and free lunch each instructional school day.  The change in programming is the result of USDA announcing an extension to the national waivers, which allow all students to receive free meals during the pandemic.  This change also applies to our “Meals to Go” program, which allows parents to sign up and pick up meals to go every Wednesday for the days their students are learning virtually (see order form here for this Wed’s pick-up). Questions concerning the change in our program should be directed to 610-351-5670 or seierl1@parklandsd.org.  Note:  A la carte menu items still will be available for purchase and if you have money in your MySchoolBucks.com accounts, it will be able to be used for those items and meals in the new year when this program is scheduled to expire.
