    Important News from the Kitchens at Grass Lake Community Schools.......................

    Tomorrow Friday February 21st, 2020 we will be serving chicken pot pies at our Elementary School and at our Middle and High Schools, we will have Rotini Spaghetti with Garlic Toast or Cheesy Bread Breadsticks. What is your student's favorite lunch? We like to make changes to our lunch menu to make it fresh and exciting for our students to eat with us at Grass Lake Community Schools!

    We wanted to share some facts with our parents and caregivers about how important it is for students to get a full nutritious lunch and breakfast when going to school. Relieve your stress and let your students eat lunch and breakfast at school. It's DELICIOUS, ECONOMICAL, AND WE HAVE ALL THE HEALTHY OPTIONS WITH EVERY MEAL!

    No Kid Hungry Chronic Absenteeism Report -
    Nearly 8 million students a year are considered “chronically absent,” meaning they miss at least three weeks of school per year. School officials around the nation are focused on finding ways to reduce this number. Many schools, however, already have an effective, powerful tool at their disposal – school breakfast. A new study conducted on behalf of No Kid Hungry by researchers from the University of California Santa Barbara, found:
    "Serving breakfast as part of the school day can reduce chronic absenteeism by an average of 6 percentage points. For context, holding all other factors constant, a school where 22% of students are chronically absent (the average in the schools studied) could see that drop to 16% after implementing "Breakfast After the Bell"."
    And while the focus of the study was absenteeism, exploratory analysis also found that "Breakfast After the Bell" led to improvements in reading achievement and “internalizing behaviors,” such as anxiety, loneliness, and sadness among students. Serving breakfast as a part of the school day is an effective way to fight hunger and ensure that all students start the day with the morning nutrition they need for focus, health, and emotional wellness. Studies like this will continue to help us reach more schools and policy makers with the measurable effects of this important meal.

    PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO PAY ON LUNCH BALANCES...
    You can send in a check or cash in a sealed envelope with the student's full name and grade clearly written on the envelope. You can also pay online with check or credit card at Payschools on our school website under the food service tab, you will be charged a $2.50 convenience fee for this service.

    Please contact me if you have any questions.
