School Meal Program Update

For our families who have children enrolled in either our in-school or remote education programs:

I am pleased to be able to share that the New Hyde Park – Garden City Park UFSD received permission from the State to resume offering free lunch to all enrolled students under the National School Lunch Program, similar to what we offered last year. Additionally, free breakfast will be available as well.

We have been told that these meals will be free until the end of the 2020-2021 school year or until the State runs out of funding to continue the program (whichever comes first).

Since it is entirely possible that the State will run out of funding prior to the end of the school year, it is strongly recommended that those families who qualify for Free or Reduced Price Meals, fill out the forms that are on the district’s website just to be safe. In order to determine if you are eligible for this benefit please click on the following hyperlink to visit the district’s webpage for meal services and review the “2020-2021 Income Eligibility Guidelines” - Click Here. If you believe you are eligible then please fill out the “2020-2021 Application for Free and Reduced Priced Meals” and submit to the main office of your child’s school as soon as possible - Click Here. Please refer to the guidelines and complete all required information when completing the application. Incomplete applications will not be approved.

Additional good news…the State has also permitted the District to retroactively offer the free meal program back to the start of the 2020-2021 school year. That means, for all those who paid for their meals, reimbursement checks will be issued. This will take some time to happen since the District must be reimbursed from the state first. As soon as the funding is received, payments will be processed and checks will be mailed out.

Meals for students receiving in-school learning –

Meals will continue to be available on school days. Individual servings of cereal will be available for breakfast and there will be alternating hot and cold meals available for lunch. The menus will be posted on the district’s website.

Meals for students receiving remote learning –

Weekly pick up of meals will continue to be available. On Monday mornings parents will be able to pick up their child’s meals at the child’s home school between 8:00 am and 8:30 am. At that time a parent will be allowed to obtain up to 5 cereal breakfasts and up to 5 frozen lunches (one breakfast and one lunch for each day that school is in session that week). In any week where school is closed on Monday, the pickup of meals will resume on the next day that school is in session between 8:00 am and 8:30 am. The menu will be posted on the district’s website. A reminder will be provided to the families from the school’s principal. It is recommended that each parent bring a carrying bag that can accommodate the number of meals being obtained. Prior to the onset of the school year, you were provided a code that is unique to your child. That code must be provided by you, along with your child’s full name, to the staff member who provides you the meals at the pick-up location. If for any reason you were not provided the code prior to the onset of the school year or have misplaced it, please call the school’s main office to obtain the information. We look forward to serving you and are hopeful that you take advantage of this program.

The tables will continue to be set up at the following location:
Manor Oaks: East entrance of building on Manor Ct. South

Please make certain that you continue to practice social distancing and follow all CDC recommendations when picking up lunches (i.e. wearing face masks).

Manor Oaks School sixth graders and faculty went “screen-to-screen” in a “Are You Smarter Than a Sixth Grader?” virtual game show on Feb. 12.

The event, which was coordinated by physical education teacher Lisa Santos, was held in place of the yearly volleyball game between sixth graders and their teachers. Due to the pandemic, the school came up with a way to still continue the tradition of providing a special event for the sixth grade students before winter break.

Topics included history, pop culture, math, geography, food and more. After 31 questions, the students won with a final score of 20-13.

Seven students from Manor Oaks School and Hillside Grade School were selected to participate in the virtual Nassau Music Educators’ Performance Readiness Workshops, from Feb. 5-7. The students were nominated for participation by their school's music teacher. During the workshops, they performed solos for top music professionals from the music education and performance fields, and/or participated in group musical activities during their assigned session. It was a unique opportunity for musically talented students to share their skill and love of music in a virtual environment!
