Based on guidance issued by the Agency of Education (Safety and Health Guidance for Reopening Schools, Fall 2020), we will not be able to access many of the common/communal spaces in our schools when we reopen, including our school cafeterias. That said, we recognize that lunch break is an important time for students to be able to socialize and take a breather from their learning and hard work!
Students across WCUUSD schools will be eating meals in classrooms.
Each school will be implementing its own procedures on what this will look like, so be sure to check your weekly updates by school as often as you can. Our food service staff has become well-versed in the safe preparation of meals, and most have continued working since schools were dismissed back in March.
Students who do not participate in our school food service programs will be able to bring their own lunches and snacks to school, but some classrooms will establish specific restrictions to ensure that they remain safe for students and staff with food allergies. (This is especially the case in our elementary schools where snack spaces will now become lunch spaces). Notification about which classrooms will have restrictions will come from school nurses and/or classroom teachers.
The food service task force is also developing plans to make food available to students who are not accessing in-person learning. Details will be forthcoming.
