***ATTENTION: Important Food Service Meal Price Changes! Please read below***
We are pleased to inform you that the following schools within Paradise Unified School District will be implementing a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision for 2019-2020 School Year. This means that the students at the following school sites can receive a FREE Breakfast and a FREE Lunch every school day:
Cedarwood Elementary School
Paradise High School
Paradise Intermediate School
Pine Ridge Elementary School
Paradise Ridge Elementary School
Ridge View High School
What does this mean for you and your children attending the school(s) identified above?
Great news for you and your students! All enrolled students of Cedarwood Elementary School, Paradise High School, Paradise Intermediate School, Pine Ridge Elementary School, Ponderosa Elementary School, Paradise Ridge Elementary School, and Ridge View High School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2019-2020 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application.
It has always been, and will continue to be, the goal of PUSD Food Services to provide our students with the highest quality meals at the lowest prices as approved by the state and federal programs.
During the school registration process, you will be required by Paradise Unified School District to complete a simple Household Income Survey. It is so very important that you complete the data survey that we’ve included one in this packet of information. This survey will help determine each school’s state and local education funding determinations. It will also help with consideration for family fee waivers for other school programs; however, receipt of free breakfast and lunch meals does not depend on completing it. The income data provided will determine the level of funding your school receives from both state and federal levels.
Thank you for your understanding and support of our program. We look forward to serving your student(s) during the upcoming 2019-20 school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office at 530.872.6496.
