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.

Parent Teacher Conferences Cancelled for tonight, Feb. 15

Because of the weather, we are going to cancel conferences tonight so staff and parents can be home by dark. We will let everyone know what we will do to reschedule those parent meetings.
Right now, it is safer to keep everyone in school—so for now, the plan is to release students at the regular time.

Please also note that all Middle School and High School activities, practices, and rehearsals have been cancelled for tonight. The HS Basketball game has been rescheduled.
Community Library is also closed tonight.

Have a great four day weekend!
