Online Meal Order Information and Form - Orders Must be Placed Every Week

Online Meal Order Information

**The meals for your children need to be ordered every week.**
 

During the 2019-2020 school year pandemic (March-June) the MDE required the school districts to provide meals to all children 18yrs and under at no cost to the child. Starting the 2020-2021 school year the district be continuing this program to all children 18 and under.  All meals will be free to all students through the end 2020 or until USDA funds run out.  It is beneficial for every household to fill out a free/reduced lunch forms as the Federal income guidelines have changed from last year or if the USDA funds run out and we go back to free/reduced meals.

We will no longer be offering bus route delivery.  It will be pick-up only through our new online ordering program for the 2020-2021 school year.  This will help ensure the efficiency of our food service program.  The meals will include breakfast and lunch.  The food program will follow the 2020-2021 school year calendar.

In order to participate you will need to pre-order your meals for the week starting on Thursdays and ending on Sundays at 6:00 p.m. 

 ********YOUR CHILDREN'S MEALS WILL NEED TO BE ORDERED EVERY WEEK FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS.

The food will be distributed at the Middle School Auditorium/Bus Loop doors every Wednesday between 2:00 and 6:00 p.m.  Meals will need to be picked up by a parent or guardian only (no children).  You will be required to provide the student's name and school in order to pick up the food.

Masks and social distancing are required at all times when picking up the meals. If you cannot wear a mask you must make arrangements with Janet Weijola or Alice Breitbach to schedule a pick up time slot.

If your child has a special dietary need, or our food distribution program does not work for you please contact:

Janet Weijola at 989-673-3165 ext 1901 or email jweijola@carok12.org  or

Alice Breitbach at 989-673-3165 ext 1109 or email abreitbach@carok12.org.

With all the unknowns with this pandemic, our procedures may be subject to changes. Please follow the Caro Community School Website for updates.

All meals need to be pre-ordered by Sundays at 6:00 pm and picked up on Wednesdays between 2:00 and 6:00 p.m.

These meals will be free for any child in your home, ages 1 - 18.

Food Allergy Action Plan

Due to new State of Michigan regulations, if your student cannot have milk or any milk products due to an allergy or sensitivity, the school requires a signed doctor’s note stating that the student cannot have any milk or milk products at school.  If you want juice to be the replacement for milk, the doctor’s note must include a request which states “100% juice” for the replacement.  If the school does not have a signed doctor’s note, the student will be offered water as a replacement. 

A Food Allergy Action Plan form can be obtained from the Health Coordinator at Schall School.  For more information please contact Janet Weijola, Food Service Director, at 989-673-3165, ext 1901.
