The USDA and State of Vermont have made school meals available free to all students for the school year 2023- 2024.  That being true we RELY ON PARENTS RETURNING FREE AND REDUCED APPLICATIONS  for funding both in education and nutrition programs.

The Nutrition Program wants to be able to offer the Fruit and Vegetable Program and our Summer Food Program again for students and our ability to do that at no cost will depend on our Free and Reduced Percentage from the applications we receive back from you!!  Federal and State Grants for Equipment are based on these numbers as well!!

Educationally,  Title 1 programs ( Reading, Science and Math programs), are funded based on these percentages.  

Families qualifying for Free and Reduced can qualify for reduced internet costs, kids applying for college can do so at no cost. PSAT and SAT test can be taken at no cost, and even safe on the cost of groceries.

We hope that you take a moment to fill out the forms and return them to the Food Service Director , Willy Walker.

If you have any questions or need help with the forms feel free to contact him.

Our kitchen offers Breakfast and Lunch each school day in the cafeteria.

All breakfast and lunch meals are created with a focus on fresh and local foods that meet USDA Meal Pattern guidelines to include fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and milk.

In order for Middle and High School Students to purchase à la Carte items they can use their prepaid debit meal accounts, or pay cash at time of purchase.

Students/parents may pre-pay to their meal account at any time. Money orders or checks made payable to “OSSD.” will be credited to student accounts. 

To pay using a debit or credit card visit “myschoolbucks.com” (link at the bottom of this page) to set up an account using the student district ID number. There will be a $5.00 fee charged for all checks that are returned for insufficient funds. Parents/students are expected to keep meal accounts up-to-date. Students may not charge ala carte items.

We look forward to serving you children this coming school year.  Know that I welcome communication , so please do not hesitate to contact me.
