Maconaquah School Corporation will be able to enjoy FREE breakfast and lunch meals!
Thanks to a waiver from the USDA, all students at Maconaquah School Corporation will be able to enjoy FREE breakfast and lunch meals!
For in-person learners, the waiver will begin this Thursday and last through December 31, 2020 (or until federal funds are depleted, whichever comes first).
After December 31 (or when the federal funds are depleted) the students account will return to the current eligibility. If a parent would like to continue putting money into their students lunch account during this free period, it will remain in the account and carry over to whenever the waiver ends.
Students will be allowed one free breakfast and one free lunch per day. Ala Carte purchases will be available at the middle and high school, however money will need to be in the students account to be able to purchase ala carte.
Starting October 20, we will be offering free breakfast and lunch meals to students enrolled in our Remote Learning program. Pick up times for remote students will be every Tuesday from 11AM to 2PM. Pick up will be at Maconaquah Middle School, door 12N (athletic entrance) between the middle school and elementary school. Each remote student will be provided with one week worth of breakfasts and lunches at pick-up. This will be a no contact pick-up. Everyone will remain in their cars and the meals will be placed in the vehicle. Remote Learning families, please sign up by Sept 24th, so we can ensure we have enough food ordered: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScKsXlgjrzu5CajmSdU-JAHnimqG8cXuuwRpicrAB6dqjmkXA/viewform?usp=sf_link

Important COVID-19 Update
Parents, Students, and Staff,
We are reaching out to inform you that there have been five individuals within the same family that have tested positive for COVID-19 within Maconaquah School Corporation. Three of the individuals are high school students and one of the individuals works in food service at the high school. We have been in contact with the Miami County Health Department and the decision has been made to move all high school students to remote learning for two weeks starting August 17 and ending August 27. Additionally, high school athletics will be put on hold for those same dates, August 17-27. The fifth positive case is a middle school participant. Contact tracing is in process and in the event of your student having been exposed to a positive case on school grounds, you will be contacted directly by the Miami County Health Department with next steps.
We are continuing to follow our COVID-19 Back to School Guidelines, and want our community to rest assured that we are utilizing all safety precautions necessary to help prevent the spread of this virus. All exposed areas have been contained and professionally disinfected and sanitized. At this time, we will be continuing to operate our middle school and elementary school buildings with minor adjustments as instructed by the Miami County Health Department. As a reminder, no student or staff member should enter any Maconaquah School Corporation building if they have COVID-19 symptoms, have been exposed to COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19. We ask that any questions or information regarding exposure be directed to the Miami County Health Department. We plan to be as transparent as possible while still following HIPPA and privacy guidelines. Thank you for your help and cooperation as we work to keep our students and staff safe.
