Dear Parents and Guardians,
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! We hope you had a wonderful summer and are geared up for the new school year. As you may already know, Maschio's Food Services, Inc. provides food service to your child’s school.
We want you to know that we take this responsibility seriously and put your child’s nutrition and well-being above everything. Maschio's is happy to provide your child with nutritious and exciting recipes and menus, vibrant dining environments, and nutritional information and messaging to encourage healthy eating and exercise to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle.
We'd like to take this opportunity to share with you our programs and services for the new school year.Breakfast
Breakfast is served at James Caldwell High School every morning. We feature a variety of breakfast items, including yogurt and fresh fruit. Students may use their Nutrikids/myscchoolbucks account or cash to pay for breakfast. However there is no charging available.
Secondary students will have menus posted on the school district website and in the cafeteria. Each day, in addition to the featured hot lunch menu, a variety of alternative options are available, including a Hamburger or Cheeseburger on a Bun, a Plain Chicken Patty on a Bun, Chicken Tenders with a whole wheat roll; Assorted Quality Deli Meats and Cheeses on Fresh Rolls, Breads, and Wraps with a Variety of Fresh Toppings; and NY Style or Personal Pan Pizzas with a Variety of Toppings.
The lunch price for Grover Cleveland Middle School students is $3.25. The lunch price for James Caldwell High School is $3.50. The lunch price for elementary school students is $3.00.
All secondary students who prepay or qualify for free or reduced-priced meals may go directly to the school cashier. There is no charging of meals available. If your child does not have money on account or cash they need to speak with the school office for assistance.Nutrikids Point-of-Sale System
For those of you new to the school district and for all elementary school parents, we'd like to outline our Point-of-Sale (POS) system.
The POS system benefits you, your child, and the school in a number of practical ways. We hope that you and your student will consider taking advantage of some of these convenient options.
Please read the following information carefully.
We will be using a computerized cash register system to ease the payment process for your child. Here’s how it will work:
- Funds are added to a personal myschoolbucks account using an unique student id provided to you by the school. For more information on myschoolbucks, click here.
- All students have been assigned an ID number to access their lunch account. This ID number will be like a PIN for an ATM machine. Students will be issued these numbers the week before we start to serve lunch.
Know What Your Child Buys For Lunch
- Students will enter their ID number into a PIN pad at the cashier.
You have the ability to view and print out a copy of your child’s meal purchase history report. This history report will show all the dates and times that your child has purchased lunch within the past 30 days.
Please be advised that when you first create your account, you will only be able to see your child’s history for that day. To view the 30-day history, log out and then sign back in again.Healthier US School Challenge (HUSSC)
The Healthier US School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary initiative established in 2004 to recognize schools participating in the National School Lunch Program that have created healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity.
In alignment with HUSSC, we are committed to serving nutritious meals to your children. This commitment is at the heart of how we deliver on our promise to help students flourish. We encourage students to embrace good eating and healthy lifestyle habits at an early age, and a school’s food and nutrition program plays a big role in this effort. We’re excited about the opportunity to launch these new menus at your school.Some features of the menu include:
- A fruit or vegetable offered every day of the week
- Fresh fruit and fresh vegetables offered whenever possible
- Many entrées now offered whole grain
- Only 1% and skim low-fat white and and 1% chocolate milk are offered.
Applications for free meals are available at your school. Please fill out the form and return it to your child’s school office. As a courtesy, all students who qualified for free lunches last June will remain eligible until October 20, 2017. After that date, students must have a new application completed and returned to the school office to continue to receive free meals. If the income in your household changes during the school year, please feel free to fill out another application.Food Allergies
There are a growing number of food allergies and intolerances occurring in children. Please let the school nurse know if your child has any special dietary restrictions, and we will try to accommodate them as much as possible.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding any aspect of the Food Service Program at your child’s school, please feel free to contact Roseann Kelly, Food Service Director at email@example.com or 973-228-9115 ext 2018.
