The Phoenix Union High School District will be holding a high school information night, October 23 from 6pm to 7pm for all middle school families. The event will be held at Vista del Sur, 3908 W. South Mountain Ave. Find out about all the offerings throughout the Phoenix Union High School District.
There is “lots2love” about school lunch and that is the theme of this year’s National School Lunch Week.
Cafeterias will be providing free lunches during the week of October 15 to all students to encourage them to try the many nutritional meals cafeterias offer. The Child Nutrition Department will offer a special menu that includes heart-shaped chicken nuggets, soft pretzels, and potatoes.
All meals are prepared to federal nutritional guidelines and include whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. The menus are specifically designed to provide nutritious meals for growing children. Visit www.laveeneld.org/menu for more information.
Laveen’s Kids Klub is now accepting registrations for Fall Break Camp. Camp will be available each day of Fall Break from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Desert Meadows School. Visit our Kids Club Day Camp page for details and registration forms.
In September, the Governing Board recognized three Laveen administrators with the district’s Pinnacle of Leadership award. Congratulations to Network Supervisor Butch Neal, Desert Meadows School Principal J.P. Ketcham, and Rogers Ranch School Asst. Principal Asia DeRosa!
Laveen schools serve free or reduced-price lunches to families that qualify based on income requirements.
Families must reapply annually. If you qualified last year your eligibility expires September 17. Please reapply at EZMealApp.com or complete a paper application at your school’s front office or cafeteria. All families are encouraged to apply. Applications are processed year round and are kept confidential.
Families that meet federal income levels may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Lunches are currently priced at $2.30; the reduced price is $.40. Breakfast is served free to all students, regardless of eligibility, before school each day.
In addition to receiving a discount on meal prices, completed applications provide additional funds to the district in the form of grant money. Funding for prevention programs, parent training, and interventions for students in reading and math is often based on the number of students qualified for free or reduced–price lunch.
