Back to School

Meal service for students are as follows:

For In-Person Learning Students (until Nov. 23)

Students in Grades K–8 will eat meals inside classrooms. Students in Grades 9–12 will eat meals inside school cafeterias, with increased social distancing/cohorting, and cleaning.

Staff will continue to follow rigorous cleaning and sanitizing practices, including sanitizing serving line tray slides, milk boxes and cash stands in between classes or periods.

Menu choices will be reduced to expedite meal service time. Vegetable/salad bars will be discontinued/converted to packaged items. Students should not share food.

All meals and utensils will be individually wrapped/packaged and can easily be carried by students to another location, i.e., to a classroom for consumption.

For Remote Learning Students

When IPS returns to 100% remote learning for all grades, beginning Nov. 23, the district will bring back Student Support Networks and a variety of meal pickup sites throughout the district.

The IPS Food Service Team will provide multiple days’ worth of prepackaged meals (breakfast and lunch) two days a week for IPS students during remote learning days. Meals are available to any child 18 years of age and younger regardless of enrollment in IPS. Meals will be handed out drive-thru style in parking lots.
