Meals will be provided to virtual students who opt-in by completing the weekly sign-up form. The form will be emailed to parents and guardians of virtual students, and will also be available on the Russellville School District K12 Website for easy access.
Parents will be notified that these meals will be charged to the student’s account, as though the student was in school, based on their Free/Reduced/Paid status.
Parents will fill out the virtual form by 2 pm the day prior to service. This will allow the information to be collected and distributed to each location for next-day service. The form will allow parents to complete information for all school-age children in their household.
Please list who is picking up the meal for their child, it will be noted for the cafeteria personnel so that they can ensure that the meals are going to the proper person/child.
A Child Nutrition administrator will ensure that the parent/guardian filling out the form is listed as a guardian for the child listed in the form. Administration will also fill in the student’s
ID number if it is missing from the form. The Child Nutrition administrator will fill in the 'meal pick up form' for the school that the child attends and indicate the child’s name and which days they will be picking up meals.
Although the sign-up form will indicate how many meals the cafeteria is to prepare and have available, meals will be charged daily based on who picked up meals. If meals are being signed up for but not picked up, an administrator will reach out to the parent/guardian to ensure that these meals are needed, and make alternative arrangements where necessary.
If parents have children at multiple schools due to zoning or grade level, These meals will be noted on the form in the school the child is assigned to for charging purposes.
We will maintain 40 degrees or lower on all potentially hazardous foods leaving the kitchen. Each child will receive one lunch and one breakfast for the 5 school days.
Cashiers will ensure that no child in the Virtual program is charged for a “second meal” unless specifically ordered at the $3.85 rate.
Meals will be available at set times at the location and will be picked up at a designated location determined by the principals at each location. Detailed information about pick-up times/locations will be available on the Russellville District website.
Additional meals for adults or children not enrolled in the program will be charged at the adult price. Funds must be available at the time of pick up for the additional meals.
