Syosset中央学区 participates in the National Child Nutrition Program. Aramark is the food service provider for Syosset. 我们的目标是提供有营养的服务, well-balanced meals that appeal to students and the school community that meet the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program requirements.
The USDA has extended the provision of free meals (breakfast and lunch) to 所有 students on days that school is in session for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year. (Program end date is subject to change at the discretion of the federal government). All students will now be eligible for one breakfast and one lunch meal at no cost each day.
While one breakfast and one lunch meal will be free each day, please be advised that additional lunches and lunch a la carte items, 比如零食和瓶装水, 是 不 part of the free lunch program and therefore, student accounts will be charged for those items. Student accounts will 不 be charged for items selected under the Lunch and Side/ Drink categories (fruit and vegetable sides included with the main meal).
本学年, the meal program will look different in the school buildings due to health and safety protocols in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some general changes will apply to all schools, including:
- 更多的 limited menu choices, particularly in the beginning of the school year.
- A pre-order menu system will be available for grades K - 8.
- High School students will be served a limited-menu in a grab-and-go style as well as selected entrees. Selections will be available from the cafeteria and via several mobile carts at alternate locations.
- No outside delivery of meals or meal drop off by p是nts will be permitted.
- To enhance hygiene, no CASH will be exchanged. 父母 can continue to send checks or purchase items through the online payment system.
- Handwashing will be encouraged through mobile hand washing stations, signage and frequent reminders to wash hands.
Meals for elementary and middle school students must be pre-ordered through the 无限的校园 system (说明见下文).
Meal Orders must be entered by midnight on every Monday for the following week.
We anticipate transitioning to an online ordering system that is integrated with the district’s online payment system, MySchoolBucks，一旦该平台可用. In the interim, 无限的校园 released a new module for pre-ordering meals. Middle school students, and p是nts of elementary students, can pre-order meals through 无限的校园:
- Click on the school, and select “Categories” (at the bottom of the screen)
- Select Breakfast or Lunch ordering 菜单 to begin ordering
链接 菜单 是 provided on the site to facilitate ordering.
The 无限的校园 platform is exclusively a pre-order system, 不是支付系统, so p是nts will need to continue to use MySchoolBucks as the payment system. Once the online ordering system is available that integrates with MySchoolBucks, 这个额外的步骤将被消除.
All 菜单 will be posted on the Food Service section of the website. 提供配料的交互式菜单, nutritional information and highlight potential allergens 是 posted on 爱玛客SchoolDish网站.
在高中, students may select grab-and-go meals at several locations in the building, including the two cafeterias and additional mobile stations. Students will swipe their ID cards at the Point of Sale (POS) system to record purchases.
To enhance hygiene, no cash will be accepted in any locations. Online payments may be made by establishing an account on MySchoolBucks. 建立帐户, you need your child’s student ID number which can be found on the 无限的校园 家长门户. If you do not have a 家长门户 account, please email P是ntPortal@beingtrulypresent.com. 有2美元的费用.49 per on-line transaction to cover the use of MySchoolBucks. 为每个50美元.00 online deposit ONE FREE MEAL will be put on your child’s account. Payments to your student’s account may also be made by check.
The 区 utilizes a computerized POS (Point of Sale) system that flags students with allergies. Upon entry of the student’s code into the system, 过敏原信息, 如果适用的话, will pop up on-screen to alert the food service worker.
