Oscoda Area Schools' Wellness Policy If you would like to be a part of the Wellness Committee, please contact Jan Sancrant, Food Service Director, at sancrantj@oscodaschools.org.

We are pleased to inform you that Oscoda Area Schools will be participating in an option available to eligible schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2022-2023 School Year.

The GREAT NEWS is that ALL STUDENTS enrolled at our school district are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at NO CHARGE to your household each day of the 2018-2019 school year.

In place of the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application we still need your household to fill out and sign the Household Information Report. This report is critical in determining the amount of money that our school receives from a variety of State and Federal supplemental programs like Title I A, At-risk (31a), Title II A, E-Rate, etc.  You can download the form here.

 These supplemental programs have the potential to offer supports and services for our students including, but not limited to:

·         Instructional supports (staff, supplies & materials, etc.)

·         Non-instructional services (counseling, social work, health services, etc.)

·         Professional Learning for staff

·         Parent and Community engagement supplies and activities

·         Technology

We are asking that you please complete and submit it as soon as possible to ensure that additional funding for our school is available to meet the needs of our students. All information on the report submitted is confidential. Without your assistance in completing and returning the attached report, our school cannot maximize the use of available State and Federal funds.

 If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at Charlie Negro, 989-739-6309.

 Sincerely,

 Charlie Negro
Director of Categorical Funding Oscoda Area Schools

Charging Meals

Parents and guardians must plan for their child to have sufficient access to food at school on each school day and must actively monitor and manage their child’s school food service account. There are several options to check on food service accounts. Parent can check with food service cashier at the school or call the Food Service Office at (989) 739-2401 to check their students’ balances. Students are given notes to take home or are verbally informed when their account is getting low. Automated School Messenger calls and low balance emails are sent out twice a week if account is in negative. E link is our online account system that allows parents to view student accounts from any computer. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REGULARY CHECK YOUR CHILDS ACCOUNT BALANCE.

Students with negative account balances will not be allowed to purchase ala-carte items. Your student account is not a charge account. Negative amounts must be paid in order for your student to continue getting school meals. Richardson Elementary School and Oscoda High School students will be allowed to charge up to five lunches, and then account must be paid up in full. Student over the charge limit will be asked to call home and notify their parent/guardian. The student will receive a substitute lunch as determined by food service staff.

Families having financial difficulties are asked to contact food service department to make other arrangements.
