It’s a Catholic school, and our school does not accept voucher families.. I’m not sure if voucher schools would have to offer lunch?.. I know we don’t have to. We can’t afford the staff and equipment.
Our lunchroom staff is parent volunteers. Friday’s are optional hot lunch days, they order from local restaurants. It’s not mandatory, but I pay for the entire year.. it’s my favorite of the week since I don’t have to pack a lunch. . Seriously, I look forward to it weekly.
I’m assuming that due to the new restrictions on entering the building, that they don’t want to bring a bunch of parents in on every Friday. Not sure, though... but would make sense.
Loss of Hot Lunch Friday and Milk Cards are the biggest bummer for me, besides drop off. I’m scared to death of that. I’m thinking it will be a nightmare. Most of the families at school have 3-5 kids, how long is that going to take per vehicle?
The virtual learning is exactly what we had in the spring when DeWine shut us down. Kids still had every single subject, but parents had to help with lessons. It was HELL, I can’t imagine choosing that willingly while paying tuition!
My children's private elementary school did not have a cafeteria, but cold lunches were available for purchase - but they were pretty much things that I could just pack in a lunchbox myself, so I did. They did have a couple of fast food days, so I purchased those. Students ate in their classrooms, and seemed to survive. I don't know if scholarship students got a free lunch.
Their MS/HS had a real cafeteria which served breakfast and lunch - which they charged to their student ID. Scholarship students may or may not have gotten free meals - it depended upon the scholarship, and that information was not shared. They used the same ID as every other student - the accounting office made corrections on the bills.
