Temporary Changes to Our Lunch Program

Dear Bear Lake School District Parents/Guardians,

The USDA recently announced the release of funds allowing schools to provide FREE meals to all students through 2020/2021 school year. We know this will help many families in the Bear Lake community that might not be eligible for free/reduced meals but are still experiencing a hardship due to the effects of COVID-19. Breakfast in Bear Lake School District has always been free the change will be implementing FREE lunch starting October 1st 2020 and it will run until the end of the school year. This opportunity will only be offered during regular school days and service times will remain the same. Please note: Only full meals are free. If your child wants individual items only such as mile, or just the main meal they will need to purchase these. I attached a list of the prices for each item. I hope this brings some help and relief to families especially as we are approaching the holidays. As always, thank you for supporting the Bear Lake School Lunch Program. If you have any questions please the middle school and ask for Ashley Preece

Sincerely, Ashley Preece BLSD Food Service Director
