Dear OSSD Community,

Read our latest Safe and Health Schools Newsletter by clicking on the icon below.


In other good news:

The rules that permitted us to send home free school lunches during unexpected Covid shut downs have now expired, and the state has informed us that we are no longer required to offer free meals.

However, we continue to believe that a hungry student is not going to be focused on his/her/their studies, so our new Director of Food Services, Sarah Natvig, and her team have devised a creative way to continue this important and appreciated service.

While the RUHS and RTCC buildings are closed, the OSSD food service team will be preparing meals for students that can be picked up from 4:30 PM to 5:30PM.

All meals must be pre-ordered using the form that was emailed out on November 14. If you did not get the form, please contact Sarah at snatvig@orangesouthwest.org.

Here are the details: 

  • Pick up time for these meals is between 4:30pm - 5:30pm each day
  • Location: RU parking lot-gym entrance
  • Cost: free for RUHS & RTCC students, additional adult meals $9
  • Cut off time for ordering - 8:00 am the day pick up

We encourage all families to take advantage of this offering! These meals will not be funded by the Federal School Lunch program but are being offered courtesy of OSSD. We will also offer families the opportunity to purchase additional meals for convenience. 

Thank you for your patience during this unexpected interruption!

Heather Lawler
Assistant Superintendent
