29 – COVID-19 Update – September 8 – Free Meals Continued

8 September 2020

Dear Parents,

We are excited to announce that the USDA announced a nationwide waiver for schools to offer free meals to all students. 

Effective September 14, 2020 all students age 18 and under in the Oconto Falls School District can receive Free Breakfast and Free Lunch up until December 31, 2020 OR until the available funds run out.  Which means this program could end at any time prior to December 31, 2020.  These meals will only be available on scheduled school days according to our 2020-2021 School year calendar.  If there is money in your food service account currently, it will remain in there to be used once this opportunity ends. 

This is a great opportunity for all kids to receive breakfast and lunch each day at Abrams Elementary, Oconto Falls Elementary, Washington Middle School and Oconto Falls High School. We will still be sending meals home with students that order them Tuesday for the Wednesday Virtual Learning Day and these also will be free of charge.  

It is very important that you still complete the Free and Reduced Application, if you have not done so, because when this free meal opportunity ends, you will be responsible for payment based on your current status of free/reduced/paid.  Our District may qualify for special funding or programming based on our Free and Reduced percentage.  

Please note this opportunity does not include a la carte purchases, snack milk at the elementary levels, and/or milks purchased with meals brought from home.  These items WILL be charged to your account.  

PLEASE BE PATIENT AND FLEXIBLE as we will be ordering supplies, based on the data from our meals last spring.

As always, if you have any questions, we will be happy to help.

Thank you,


Jennifer Faccio
