    Student Meals during Remote Learning

    District 87 will continue to have meals available for students during remote learning. Breakfast and lunch will be available with a modified, “grab and go” menu.  Meals will be balanced and will contain grains, meat/meat alternatives, vegetables, fruit, and milk. During the 2020-21 school year, District 87 is required to operate under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program which provides free, reduced-price, or paid meals for students in grades K-12 based on their family's income.

    How to receive meals during remote learning

    1. Complete a meal order form at least one day in advance of meal pick up. If you are the parent/guardian of multiple District 87 students, you must complete a separate order form for each student. Students who receive free/reduced-price meals must also submit a meal order form. Order forms for Tuesday pick up are due Mondays at 11:00 AM. Order forms for Thursday pick up are due Wednesdays at 11:00 AM.
    2. If you do not qualify for free meals, please transfer funds into your student’s lunch account through My School Bucks. Cash can be accepted as a form of payment on site, however it is highly encouraged to transfer funds to your student’s meal account. K-12 accounts will be charged per each meal that is picked up.
