The USDA has provided a waiver, which allows us to provide breakfast and lunch at no charge to all students, up to the age 18.  This waiver is currently effective through December 31, 2020 or until the funds are depleted, whichever is sooner.

A meal order form will be distributed each Tuesday so parents can submit their order the following week.  Meal packs will be available for pick up on Mondays (except Holidays) at Belmont High School or Canterbury Elementary School from 4-6 pm. Remember to PRE-ORDER your REMOTE MEAL Packs By Friday @ 5 PM!



Lockers and Backpacks:

Lockers will not be available at the start of school.  Students will be allowed to carry their backpacks to classes.  Please make sure that students have their own school supplies as we will not be sharing supplies.  The school will have a limited supply for students needing basic supplies.  Grade level supply lists are available on the school website.

Cell Phones:
As we are not using lockers to start the school year, we require that all student cell phones be turned off and kept in their backpacks during the school day.



Masks and Mask Breaks:
Per the Shaker Regional School District (SRSD) 2020-2021 Return to School Plan, all   staff and students are required to wear masks at all times while on the bus and in the building. Frequent mask breaks will be provided.
