Uniontown USD 235 is excited to announce that our application to continue the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) has been approved by KSDE.
With the recent announcement by Sonny Perdue, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, USD 235 Food Service staff moved quickly to get applications in place to help serve our students better.
By utilizing this announced program, we will be able to provide free lunch and breakfast meals to all USD 235 students. This is a great opportunity for our students, families, community and school. Students must be enrolled in USD 235 to take advantage of our program. Effective Tuesday, September 8, 2020, all USD 235 students will receive free breakfast and lunch meals.
We will not be delivering food, but students utilizing Remote Learning may call our Food Service Director, Michelle DeMott to request meals. She may be reached at (620) 238-4968. Meals for Remote Learners may be picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM at the east cafeteria door at West Bourbon Elementary School.
Remote Learning Students will only need to sign up once with Michelle to have meals continued. If you notify Michelle you want meals started and don’t intend to pick them up on a given day, then please call and notify her. Anyone wanting to start meal pick up will need to notify Michelle at least 24 hours in advance.
The length of time we are able to offer this service will be determined by available Federal Funding and actions by Congress. We will work hard to notify parents in a timely manner when we have to move back to charging for meals.
This information was also emailed to all parent/guardian accounts in PowerSchool on Thursday, September 3.
Bret Howard, USD 235 Superintendent
