Free & Reduced Resource Page and Re-Application Reminder

  • Dear D49 Families,

    As we work hard every day to deliver excellent education and meet critical needs for all of our families, we invite you to take a look at some important information about the overall value of the Free and Reduced Benefits Program at D49.org. We also want to share a friendly reminder that is extremely important for all qualifying families to complete the application process, regardless of the availability of meals at no cost for all D49 families. This will ensure access to all the benefits provided, which support programs at your student’s schools and includes individual assistance for school and transportation fees. 

    We strongly encourage all who qualify, or may qualify for the Free and Reduced Benefits Program to apply or reapply by Monday, Sept. 28. All families who do not reapply for the 2020-21 school year will be removed from the benefit program. Families who are new to the program can register and apply, and qualifying families may reapply today, by clicking this link to PaySchools Central 

    Important Note: The deadline to register for the state of Colorado’s Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits is this Wednesday, September 23. Families eligible for the free and reduced program may get $279 in benefits for each eligible child to buy food, regardless of immigration status. Some families who received SNAP in March, April, or May got these benefits on their EBT cards automatically. All other eligible families need to apply online by the Sept. 23 deadline.

    Apply today for Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) at coloradopeak.force.com/PEBT 

    We thank you for your trust, and we look forward to seeing and serving you soon!

Ordering Meals for E-learners

  • Friday, Sept. 11, 2020

    Dear D49 families,

    Nutrition Services is excited to participate in USDA's extension of the summer feeding waiver to provide meals at no cost to all of our students who are attending school in person or through E-learning, even those who would otherwise pay for breakfast and lunch. This USDA program runs through the fall 2020 semester.

    Those participating in E-learning can order meals at no charge for themselves and for their siblings who are between the ages of 1-18. Meals can be picked up at the student's school or the school that is closest for the family, starting on Monday, Sept. 14.

    To order meals for E-learners only, please do the following:

    • Order daily by 7:30 a.m. for same-day pick-up, Monday through Friday, except holidays. 
    • Locate desired school for pick-up and meal ordering email from chart below. 
      • Pick-up times are fixed and all schools will stop at stated time to start lunch service for the in-person learners. Please help us by being on time to pick up your meals.
    • In the email: Provide student/child's name, student ID number (for siblings state “not in school” if not enrolled)
      • Note entree selection, and whether you prefer white or chocolate milk. Fruit and vegetables listed on the menu will be included with the meal.
    • In the email: Write which meal is desired (meals must be ordered off the menu of the school you are ordering from). 
    • A breakfast for the next day can be ordered at this time. Please make sure to request breakfast, if desired. The breakfast meal contains the following: cereal, white milk and a fruit or juice. 

     

    Thank you for your time and attention. Please continue to watch our regular channels of communication for updates. You can email questions to Monica Deines-Henderson at md-h@d49.org 

     

    Sincerely, 

    Monica Deines-Henderson

Nutrition Services Overview

  • The nutrition services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals who are dedicated to student health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. We're available for visits from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Help with processing a free-and-reduced application is available from 8 a.m. to noon.

    Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
     
    Nutrition departments are regulated by the federal government and part of that regulation is to operate as a self-funded enterprise within a school district. This means that nutrition services does not take any tax-payer’s funds from the district to operate the meal programs.
