FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM UPDATE
Summer Food Service Program extended through June 30, 2021.
On October 9, 2020 USDA Food and Nutrition Service extended COVID-19 Nationwide Waiver to allow operation of the Summer Food Service Program through June 30, 2021. This program will follow the school calendar.
The Lead-Deadwood School District has been approved beginning October 1, 2020 to provide Breakfast and Lunch to all children 18 years and younger at no charge through June 30, 2021.
If a student requests seconds on milk, the charge for the milk will be applied to the child’s meal account. If your child brings a sack lunch and requests a milk, the child’s meal account will be charged for the milk.
Families can continue to make payments on meal accounts through EZSchoolPay to pay for extras.
Grab N Go meals may be picked up at the Elementary in Deadwood as well as the High School in Lead for those students that are receiving distance learning services.
Students attending school in person will continue with their same meal schedule.
Grab-N-Go meals can be picked up at two locations Monday-Friday. Families are able to pick up both breakfast and lunch for the week by contacting the Food Service Department at 605-717-3890 with the number of meals they are requesting.
Elementary 10:00 am-11:00 am
