HYBRID STUDENT MEALS
Hybrid students who want to take meals home for their days of virtual learning will need to sign up using the “Hybrid Meal Form.” This form needs to be completed for each student for the school they attend.
If you do not want meals to be sent home with your student, this form does not need to be completed. You do not need to complete this form in order for your student to receive a meal during their in-person learning. This form is only used for meals sent home for virtual instruction days.
Hybrid student parents/guardians also have the option to pick up meals for their students at one of our remote sites should they not want their student to bring the meals home directly from their school.
If you have any questions, please contact the Food Service office directly at 610-965-1680.

At the beginning of the school year, letters listing money owed will be mailed or emailed by the food service provider or Business Office to any parents/guardians whose children have accrued debt during previous years.
Balance reminders will be sent home every two (2) weeks by the food service provider for students who have accrued debt.
If the debt remains unpaid for two (2) months, the food service provider, building principal or designee will contact the parent/guardian to discuss payment options.
If the debt remains unpaid for six (6) months, the Superintendent or designee will send a letter to the parent/guardian advising that the debt be referred to a collection agency or legal action be taken.
