All West Plains School District Students will Receive Free Meals Through December 18, 2020

The West Plains School District is excited to announce free breakfast and lunches to ALL students preschool through 12th grade.  Beginning September 14, 2020 all students preschool - 12th grade enrolled in online, virtual, seated or hybrid learning will receive free meals through the end of the fall semester.  The free meals are made possible due to an extension of waivers allowed by the United States Department of Agriculture.  The district in conjunction with OPAA Food Management Incorporated, will provide the free breakfasts and lunches.  To continue programs such as this, the district encourages parents and guardians to continue to complete and submit their Free/Reduced Lunch applications. For more information on meal distribution and how virtual students can utilize the meal program, visit www.zizzers.org 

Online/Virtual Students

Online/virtual learning students will be able to schedule food pickup at the West Plains Middle School location.  The meal program is available on a daily basis but must be prescheduled.  The meals can be picked up between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. at the rear entrance of the middle school located next to the food service delivery entrance.  This will be the only pick up location for online and virtual students to pick up their meals.  Meals will not be provided on days that school is not in session.  Online/virtual students click here to register.

Seated Students

Seated students, (those students that are receiving all instruction on campus), will not see any changes in meal delivery service.  However, regardless of current status on meal payments; breakfasts and lunches will be free of charge effective September 14th.  Snack bar items will still be available for purchase.

Hybrid Students

Hybrid Group A Students - Group A students will have free breakfast and lunch provided on Monday and Wednesday at school.  They will also have an opportunity to take home a free breakfast and lunch on Monday and Wednesday afternoon for the upcoming day.  

Hybrid Group B Students - Group B students will have free breakfast and lunch provided as well, but on Tuesday and Thursday.  They will also have an opportunity to take home a free breakfast and lunch for the upcoming day.
