Free Breakfast and Lunch for all students! Earlier this month, USDA released nationwide waiver extensions for the Summer Food Program until December 31, 2020 (or until funding is depleted). Perry Local Schools has chosen to participate and been granted approval to accept the waiver. What does this mean for your students? Beginning Monday, September 14, all children enrolled in Perry Local Schools will be eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch meal. Any al-a-carte items including extra pizza, sandwiches, milk and bottled water will be charged according to pricing. On January 1, 2021, or when USDA funds are depleted, regular pricing for breakfast and lunch will resume according to student’s meal eligibility: free, reduced, paid. If you feel you may qualify for free or reduced meals, we encourage you to complete the application now so it will go into effect in January. Applications may be completed at www.payschoolscentral.com.

While the Perry Local School District has reopened its schools to students, the global COVID- 19 pandemic continues. Schools are places where diseases like COVID-19 can quickly spread given the number of students, teachers, and others who often come into close contact with one another. For the safety of our student body and community, all Perry Local School District staff and students in grades Pre-K-12 are required to wear multi-layered cloth face coverings at all times while at school or on school buses, subject to the exceptions at the end of this policy. Face coverings must comply with our Dress Code, and must not contain profanity or other prohibited images or material. Failure by students to comply with this policy may result in discipline under the Student Code of Conduct. Furthermore, outright refusal by
a student to wear a face covering will result in the student being enrolled in the Perry Virtual Learning Academy. COVID-19 is highly contagious, and not everyone infected with the disease shows symptoms. When a student wears a face covering, though, it is more difficult for the student to spread COVID-19 to friends and classmates. And because we don’t always know who has COVID- 19, it is safest for all of us if everyone wears a cloth face covering. We wear face coverings to help protect our friends and classmates in case we are infected but don’t know it. Face coverings are effective only if worn properly.
