Connected Food Program Updates

Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year!  The Connected Food Program staff are thrilled to welcome back students to our cafeterias!  Our goal is to offer ALL students delicious, healthy food that is served safely and efficiently this year. 

1) Connected Food Program staff take the safety of our students during the COVID-19 pandemic as our highest priority. Please see the District's COVID-19 Updates site for details on our meal service safety measures.  

2) *IMPORTANT NEWS - ALL STUDENTS EAT FOR FREE THIS YEAR* 
All students enrolled in Coupeville School District can receive lunch each school day 
at no charge during the 2021-22 school year to ensure all students are fueled and ready to learn.  All Paid, Free or Reduced Eligible enrolled students can access school meals completely FREE due to USDA extended funding.  

Until we ensure that we can safely provide all students with lunch, a la carte purchases will not be available.  Student meal account deposits are not necessary at this time.  
See our Coupeville Connected Food Program Announcement for further details.

3) The Coupeville School Farm is growing! 
Kylie Neal, Coupeville School's Farm Manager, has been busy all summer establishing the School Farm site and growing our first harvest! Cucumbers, basil, tomatoes and peppers have already been turned into pickles and marinara for later in the school year, and we have zucchini, eggplant, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce and lots more cucumbers and tomatoes that will be ready when students arrive!  Farmer Kylie is ready for students to join her at their School Farm to learn and share our excitement for growing these delicious foods.  Follow the Coupeville School Farm on Instagram for lots of pictures and updates!

Special Dietary Accommodations
The Connected Food Program will accommodate students with a Medical Authority-confirmed medical need that requires a change in the child’s diet.  The accommodation must be reasonable and cannot fundamentally alter the nature of our program.  The form should include the name of the student, the Medical Authority signature, and date the form was filled out.  Laura Luginbill, Assistant Food Service Director, is a Registered Dietitian and will work closely with students, families and school nursing staff to ensure students have meals offered that meet their specific dietary needs.
The Food Program is not able to provide special meal accommodations for food preferences. However, we strive to offer daily options that can accommodate our most common requests.
Please contact Laura Luginbill with questions or to discuss your child's specific dietary needs.
