ER9 Issues Back to School Meals Information

• Our school nutrition staff looks forward to welcoming students back to school! We will continue serving healthy school meals to fuel our students for success.

• This school year, thanks to federal pandemic waivers, all students will be eligible for free meals, regardless of family income. A la Carte items are not free and must be paid with your students MySchoolBucks account. Parents can sign up for MSB meal account www.myschoolbucks.com.

• Parents can still complete a 2021-22 Application for Free and Reduced-price School Meals, which may offer other benefits. Applications are available on the ER9 website at www.er9.org.

• Meals will be served from the school cafeteria serving line. There are no PICKUP meals offered.

• Menus and Food Services information are located on the ER9 website at www.er9.org.

• School meal programs nationwide are experiencing many of the same supply chain issues that have impacted restaurants and grocery stores throughout the pandemic.

• Our school nutrition team is committed to ensuring students continue to have access to healthy meals each school day.

• Just as families had to make substitutions on grocery lists last year, schools will have to make some last-minute changes to our regular menus, based on availability.

• We hope parents and students will be patient as we sort through these supply chain issues.

• We may not have the same number of menu choices that we typically offer our students, but we’ll be sure that all students are nourished and ready to learn.
