Avon Public School Families:

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying your summer. I have very good news for this upcoming school year. The USDA has approved Free Meals for all Children 18 and younger through the end of the 2021/2022 School Year. Students will be back in school and we will be serving in the cafeteria and at times the classroom. Students will be able to receive one free breakfast and one free lunch per day. Second meals will be available to purchase at Thompson Brook School, Avon Middle School and Avon High Schools as well as healthy snacks and beverages.

We continue to use the MySchoolBucks payment system if you would like to add funds to your student's account or create a new account. The information for MySchoolBucks can be found on the district website at https://www.avon.k12.ct.us/departments/nutrition-services/my-school-bucks-online-payment. It will no longer be necessary for you to pre-order your student's meals. The menus and nutritional information can be found on Nutrislice. You can access Nutrislice via the district website and by adding the app to your phone.

Free and Reduced Applications

Although meals are Free this year, for reporting purposes it is very important to fill out an application for Free or Reduced meals if you may be eligible. If your family receives SNAP benefits it is not necessary to submit an application.

Wishing you a very happy and successful new school year,

Margaret E. Dreher
