Food and Nutrition Services

The Robla School District recognizes that access to healthy school meals is a crucial component of learning. To ensure that all students have access to school meals, the Food and Nutrition Services Department will provide meals to all students while on campus, provide multiple day meal bags on days when students are distance learning, and will continue to make school meals accessible to families in the event of re-closure.
 
Breakfast Procedures
Breakfast will no longer be available to students before school begins. Instead, breakfast will be served to all students either in the classroom or in the cafeteria (depending on grade level). Students, parents, and staff will not be permitted to enter the cafeteria before school begins or at any time outside of their scheduled lunchtime. When students arrive on campus 15 minutes before school begins, they will be directed to the school playground by staff.
 
Lunch
All students TK-6th grade & SDC will eat lunch in the cafeteria on days they are on campus. The layout of cafeteria tables and seating arrangements will allow for six feet of distance between students eating lunch. Food & Nutrition Services will create seating maps for each cafeteria. Lunch periods will be staggered between each group to allow for cleaning/ sanitizing tables and seating areas between groups. Maximum capacity for students eating lunch in the cafeteria will vary by school site. Students will wash hands using soap and water inside the classroom prior to coming to the cafeteria for lunch.
 
Take Home Meal Bags for Students

To ensure access to school meals on days when students are not on campus, take home meal bags will be made available to all Robla students at no cost.  A/B Cohort & Full Time Distance Learning Questionnaire (sent out to parents before schools reopen) will be used to determine which families want to receive meals for days when students are not on campus.
 
If parents would like to start or stop receiving meals at any time, they can contact their child’s school principal.
 
Students enrolled in Transition Model (A/B Cohorts)

Each take home meal bag will contain three breakfasts and three lunches to account for the three days students are distance learning at home. Meals will follow the USDA meal pattern for National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs.
Take home meal bags will be delivered to classrooms on Tuesdays of each week for Cohort A and Fridays each week for Cohort B.

Deliveries will be made to classrooms 20-30 minutes before the end of the school day. Only students whose parents have signed-up to receive meal bags will receive them. If parents would like to start or stop receiving meals at any time, they can contact their child’s school principal.
 
Students will be responsible for transporting their meal bags home (by either bus, parent pickup, or walking). Students enrolled in the afterschool START program will not have meal bags delivered to the classroom and will instead receive their meal bag as part of parent pick-up in START.

Students enrolled in full-time distance learning

Each take home meal bag will contain five breakfasts and five lunches to account for the five days students are distance learning at home each week. Meals will follow the USDA meal pattern for National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs.
Take home meal bags will be available for pick up at designated school sites on Wednesdays of each week.
 
Parents, students, or older siblings may pick up meal bags on Wednesdays and will need to provide only the students first and last name. Take home meals will only be available to families that have already signed their child up for meal bags. If parents would like to start or stop receiving meals at any time, they can contact their child’s school principal.
 
Students enrolled in afterschool START program
 
Take home meal bags will be provided to students enrolled in the START program at time of pick-up. Only students that are signed up to receive take home meal bags will receive them. If parents would like to start or stop receiving meals at any time, they can contact their child’s school princi
