September 4, 2020:

Following recent changes from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) is expanding access to free meals to all children 18 years and younger, regardless of school enrollment. Beginning with meal service on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, meals will be provided to all children that participate in the curb-side or mobile meal service at no cost. This will remain in effect during Distance Learning.

Validation received since the start of the 20-21 school year will continue to be honored. To receive a validation form, parents/guardians must either bring the child on the initial visit or provide documentation of said child (i.e. school record or childcare documentation). Proof must include the child’s name. Children do not need to be present as long as parents/guardians have received the proper validation.

The current curbside meal service schedule remains the same:

These changes do not impact the meal services offered at Cosumnes River ES (on Tuesdays), Pleasant Grove ES (on Wednesdays) or C.W. Dillard ES (on Thursdays) for all students.

  • For the week initiating on Monday, September 7th (Labor Day Holiday), there will be no meal service on that Monday. Meal service will recommence on Tuesday, September 8th.

From September 8th onward, EGUSD Food & Nutrition Services will provide the following new Curb-Side Meal service:

  • Two (2) pick up days a week, Tuesdays and Fridays
    • Tuesdays, families will receive breakfast and lunch for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
    • Fridays, families will receive meals for Friday and Monday
  • Two (2) service windows where families will be able to pick up meals
    • Early Service Window: 6:45 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
    • Midday Service Window: 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Families can pick up meals at their school of preference, from any of the following sites listed, but are only eligible to pick up meals at one location, during one service window.  All EGUSD families are eligible to participate.  All students aged 18 years and younger are now eligible to pick up meals at no cost.

A great opportunity to plan for your children’s future!

 

At ScholarShare529 we help families save for higher education. ScholarShare529 wanted to share information about their Matching Grant Program where they give additional help to families to kickstart their saving goals. With this program, eligible families get a $200 match to their initial contributions to boost their savings, making college more attainable. Studies have shown that even children with college savings of less than $500 are three times more likely to enroll in higher education, and four times more likely to graduate, than those without a college savings account. Organizations like yours can help families by sharing this information with them.

Student Meals

The EGUSD plan for student meals:

Sunrise students and school-aged siblings enrolled in an EGUSD school who prefer to purchase a school meal, or who qualify for free or reduced meals, may pick up their meals between 11:15am-12:45pm Monday through Friday beginning Monday, August 3rd for Year-Round schedules at McGarvey Elementary School, 4350 Sophistry Drive, Rancho Cordova. Modified Traditional and Traditional students will be able to pick up meals beginning August 13th. 

Thank you from our Food Services Team!

Elk Grove Unified Asks Parents to Voice Their Preference for Sending Their Child Back to School for the 2020-2021 School Year

Parent Input Survey

Yesterday evening, the Elk Grove Unified School District released a districtwide email asking parents to voice their preference for sending their child back to school for the 2020-2021 school year. In its commitment to serve all of the District’s students and families and by taking every step possible to ensure high quality education is balanced with health and safety, District decision makers are reaching out to identify every parent’s preferences for their child(ren) to return to school in order to more effectively deploy plans to reopen schools within the recommended Sacramento County Public Health recommendations.
