Child Nutrition

1. Each school and/or district reopening plan must provide all students enrolled in the SFA with access to school meals each school day. This must include students in attendance at school and students learning remotely.
  • For students learning that will be out of school as part of the hybrid model:
    • Three days of breakfast  and lunch will be provided on Tuesday at the end of the day for students not attending Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
    • Three days of breakfast and lunch will be provided on Friday at the end of the day for students not attending Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
    • Students will be responsible for transporting the meals home. Students will be charged under F/R/P status for each Breakfast & Lunch provided.
    • Parents will communicate needs for take home meals via meals@jd.cnyric.org.
  • For students in attendance:
    • Breakfast served each day
      • Assorted breakfast breaks, including milk (as per menu)
      • Students will be charged under F/R/P status
    • Lunch served each day
      • Limited Choices (as per menu)
      • Students will be charged under F/R/P status.
  • For students learning remotely:
    • We will provide meals for each day, Wednesday, for students enrolled in the SFA. Grab and go breakfast and lunch will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the following location:
      • Jamesville-DeWitt High School, 6485 Edinger Drive, DeWitt, NY 13214
Please email meals@jd.cnyric.org to make arrangements for meals if you are unable to pick up at the locations and times provided.

2. Each school and/or district reopening plan must address all applicable health and safety guidelines.
  • Protocol for cleaning and disinfecting schools, including high touch surfaces:
    • Custodians perform full terminal cleaning of every district building nightly. This includes all spaces occupied by students and staff during the day. None of these areas are reoccupied until the following day.
    • Periodically, but no less than 2 additional times during the day, all high touch surfaces in shared spaces such as bathrooms, corridors, stairwells, and shared classrooms are cleaned and disinfected by custodial staff.
  • Tray lines will either not be used or Safe social distancing will take place when in serving lines
  • Pin pads will not be used
  • Dividers will be installed at point of purchase
3. Each school and/or district reopening plan includes measures to protect students with food allergies if providing meals in spaces outside the cafeteria.

Our elementary students will eat in classrooms. Students/families are accustomed to not bringing nut products to school for snack when they are a member of a nut-free classroom. A request will be made of families to refrain from sending snacks or lunches that contain nut products if they are in a nut-free class, however, in order to protect students with nut allergies, any student who brings a lunch that contains an allergen will eat in the cafeteria with a buddy.

4. Each school and/or district reopening plan must include protocols and procedures for how students will perform hand hygiene before and after eating, how appropriate hand hygiene will be promoted, and how sharing of food and beverages will be discouraged.

Jamesville-Dewitt built in staggered hand washing times for students and staff. We have also increased hand hygiene to include:
  • Traditional hand washing (with soap and warm water, lathering for a minimum of 20 seconds), which is the preferred method;
  • Use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers (60% alcohol or greater) available in classrooms and common areas in each school and facility;
  • We provide hand sanitizer throughout common areas (e.g. entrances, cafeteria), near high touch surfaces, and use touch free dispensers;
  • We have signage near hand sanitizer indicating visibly soiled hands should be washed with soap and water; 
  • Any staff or students unable to use hand sanitizer are permitted to wash their hands with soap and water; and
  • Classrooms will be equipped with refillable “buckets” of wipes containing at least 70% alcohol. These wipes are adequate for both hand sanitizing and environmental cleaning/disinfecting as necessary including electronic equipment.
It is expected that all students and staff should wash hands, as follows:
  • Before and after snacks and lunch;
  • After using the bathroom;
  • Upon coming in from outdoors; and
  • Anytime hands are visibly soiled.
Signage from the CDC Toolkit for Schools are posted in cafeterias.

5. Each school and/or district reopening plan must include protocols and procedures that require cleaning and disinfection prior to the next group of students arriving for meals, if served in the same common area.
  • Custodians perform full terminal cleaning of every district building nightly. This includes all spaces occupied by students and staff during the day. None of these areas are reoccupied until the following day.
  • Cafeterias will be cleaned after each group of students.
  • All high touch surfaces in shared spaces such as bathrooms, corridors, stairwells, and shared classrooms are cleaned and disinfected by custodial staff.
6. Each school and/or district reopening plan must ensure compliance with Child Nutrition Program requirements (if the school is its own SFA – for charter schools that are part of a district’s SFA, the plan must ensure communication with the district regarding food serve requirements).

All students will have access to reimbursable meals that are compliant with the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program.

7. Communication with families will occur through:
  • Parent letter, application, menus and FAQ will be posted on the district site on 8/18;
  • Parent letter, application, menus and FAQ due to each building on 8/18 so it can be added to welcome back information; 
  • Continued communication to families via take home meals; and
  • All communication will be made available to families through multiple means in the languages spoken by families.
8. Whether eating in classrooms or cafeterias, students will be required to maintain at least feet of
separation.
  • Lunch monitors will supervise this requirement.
