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:
Road School: Cafeteria entrance on Park Ave.

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

Remote Third Graders Learn About Ramadan

Remote Third Graders Learn About Ramadan 2 thumbnail182536
Remote New Hyde Park Road School students in Vanessa Motto’s third grade class joined together on Google Meet to discuss the Muslim holiday of Ramadan on April 13.

Students Inaya Muhammad and Fatimah Chaudry created Google Slides that they shared with their classmates. They taught their peers about basic facts regarding the holiday and elaborated on how they celebrate with their own families. Additionally, students Leyla Gervais and Ambrin Namera spoke about how they commemorate Ramadan and answered some classmates’ questions.

Following the Google Slides, Motto shared a district-provided Ramadan Matching Game and vocabulary sheet that further explained important practices and phrases, such as “Iftar,” the evening meal taken after sunset to break the daily fast, and “Zakat,” a payment to a charity that Muslims must give to once a year based on their ability to give.

“There are so many similarities between all of our cultures and religions,” Motto said at the conclusion of the virtual meeting. “Even though we come from different places, there are so many things that bring us together.”

While a fun and informative lesson, this virtual activity also tied into the board of education’s district goal of “ensuring a focus on inclusive and culturally proficient practices that improve learning and school cultures.”

During the month of February, New Hyde Park Road School focused on the theme of “Inclusion and Diversity.” Each month, the school highlights character education themes as part of a social-emotional learning initiative.

As part of the monthly theme, students in grades K-6 were able to enter the Power of Inclusion Poster Challenge. They were asked to design a poster, by hand or computer, depicting the character traits of tolerance, diversity and inclusion. Six students were chosen as winners.
