    Student Nutrition Updates

     

    To the parents or guardians of students at Susitna Elementary,

     

    In the past your school was part of the Community Eligibility Program provided to schools with a high percentage of free and reduced students. The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) that previously allowed all students a free breakfast and lunch will not be available in School Year 19-20 due to a significant decrease in families living below the poverty measures used to establish CEP status.

     

    What does this mean for my student?

    To qualify for free and reduced-price meals you will need to apply at www.asdk12.org/studentnutrition

    If you do not qualify for free or reduced-price meals you may pre-fund your child’s account through https://parentconnect.asdk12.org/production/parentportal

     

    How much do meals cost?

    Meal prices are $2.25 for breakfast and $4.00 for lunch. Reduced price meals are .30 for breakfast and .40 for lunch. A la carte milk is .50 and lactose free milk is .75.

     

    How can I track my student’s account balance?

    You may sign up for low balance notifications through Parentconnect to assist you in monitoring your child’s account in a daily digest format.

     

    What if I have more questions?

    If you have questions you may email: snadmin@asdk12.org or call 348-5145 for assistance. Our website at www.asdk12.org/studentnutrition has menus, program information and resources.

    To all parents,

     

    We have had some confusion about our breakfast and lunch meal service for students; some students think because their school serves breakfast and lunch meals that if they only want milk, they should get a free milk as well. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The program only offers breakfast and lunch meals. Meaning a full meal. If your student wishes only to have a milk, they will need to have money on their meal account or come through the meal line with .50 cents to purchase a milk. Students cannot charge a milk.

     

     

    Thank you very much, ASD Student Nutrition

     

    Fruits and Vegetables

    Susitna also is part of the fruits and vegetables program. These healthy snacks are offered to students two to three times a week. We are very fortunate to have this great program at our school.
