The Waterloo School District will be offering students "grab and go" meals this school year beginning on August 19th, 2020. Meals will be available for PICK-UP EACH DAY at one of our schools. This survey is only to assist us in determining the interest of our student body at this time. Meals will be charged to your student's lunch account per their free, reduced or paid meal status. The free and reduced application is available in your email or on our website. We encourage all eligible families to apply. Applications should be returned to the Cafeteria Director, Ruth Mason. If you are interested in meals for your child(ren), please complete one survey per registered WCUSD #5 student in your household. If you are not interested in participating, you do not need to complete the survey. https://bit.ly/31r5Ujl Questions? Please contact the Director of Cafeterias: email@example.com or 939-3454
