School Lunch Price Change

Due to a mandatory directive from the state Child and Adult Nutrition Services, Douglas Food Service is being required to raise breakfast and lunch prices by five cents beginning February 1, 2018. The new meal prices will be:
• $1.50 - breakfast for all grades
• $2.00 - elementary lunch
• $2.25 - lunch for grades 6-12
• Reduced meals will remain the same:
o 30 cents for breakfast
o 40 cents for lunch.
We realize this increase will add to the burden families bear in paying for school meals, but our hands are tied. Please remember that even with the increase, Douglas meal prices are the lowest in the state. If you need assistance, please consider filling out an application for free or reduced priced meals. The application can be found in your parent portal. The Food Service office will be happy to help you access and submit the form if needed. Please contact me with questions at Karen.Faas@k12.sd.us

Angel Fund

The Angel Fund provides hot meals for students who have no money in their school account regardless of the reason. It is mainly funded through generous donations of the remaining money in closed meal accounts, or by donations made from staff and parents. When a student receives an Angel Meal, a note will be sent home with the child and an email sent from the Food Service Office. If at all possible, we ask that the meal charge be paid back to the Angel Fund so money remains available for other students’ use.

Freshman Impact--May 9 at Douglas High School

This Wednesday, May 9, is Freshman Impact at the Douglas High School.

Freshman Impact: Caught in the Moment is a powerful one-day prevention program for our grade 9 students. The students see up close and learn through hands-on activities the possible consequences of wrong choices and the lasting effects physically and emotionally on their bodies, their families and friends, and their community. The program promotes communication and developing rapport between the youth and law enforcement / fire / rescue personnel.

There will be emergency vehicles, simulations, and an evacuation by LifeFlight. This is all part of the program and community members should be aware that this activity will be going on all day and not to worry if you see multiple first responders, and hear sirens at different times of the day.

You are welcome to come and see what this program is all about.

If you have any questions, please call 923-0000.
