Understanding the Truth About School Lunch Regulations

Over the past few weeks, misinformation has been circulated regarding our school lunch policy and our community deserves the facts. Firstly, no student has received a partial lunch during the 2019-20 school year. No member of the 9-R team has employed shaming tactics toward students.

For coughs and colds, students that are coughing consistently, and pose a risk of infecting others, should remain home until coughing subsides.
