Greetings Corinth Families
We have been working hard creating our plan to reopen safely and we’re ready to welcome our students back. The purpose of this newsletter is to make you aware of what strategies were put in place to make our meal service as contact-less as possible. We take food safety and sanitation very seriously and have revised our protocols to include even more opportunities for cleaning and disinfecting. The following is an outline of the different serving methods in all buildings. A building-specific detailed description can be found attached to the September Breakfast and Lunch menus.
Student(s) who are in attendance for in-person learning-
● All students have access to breakfast and lunch meals each day.
● Student account deposits can be made online in the TITAN family portal at family.titank12.com
● OR deposits can be made by sending cash or checks in with your student in a sealed envelope with the student's name.
● Breakfast will be served in the classroom for grades K-8. If you would like your student to receive breakfast meals each morning, we will be asking you to sign your student up using this form: Registration Form for Meal Pick Up and Breakfast in the Classroom. This will allow us to have a number of students to consistently plan for.
● High School students wishing to purchase breakfast will be able to stop at our breakfast kiosk that will be located in the HS lobby. Students will then take their meal to be eaten in their homeroom/1st period class.
● Lunch for grades 5-8 will be delivered to the classroom. Students will be asked during morning homeroom what type of meal they would like to order for lunch. The teacher will record those meal counts and share it with the cafeteria. Lunch meals will be delivered in an enclosed container and the student will be handed the meal of their choice.
● Grades K-4 and 9-12 will eat in the cafeteria at their specific meal times. We will maintain a maximum of 50 students in the cafeteria eating area to allow for social distancing.
Student(s) who are on a hybrid schedule or have chosen only remote learning-
● All students have access to breakfast and lunch meals each day.
● Meals will be available for pick-up by a parent or guardian every Tuesday and Friday from 4:00-5:00 in the Middle School parking lot.
● OR students may bring meals home for following remote days on the last day of in-person learning. Tuesday/Wednesday and Friday. You will be asked how you would like your student to receive meals for remote learning days in the aforementioned google form ( Registration Form for Meal Pick Up and Breakfast in the Classroom) or can indicate your choice on the provided form: Meal Pick-Up
● Student(s) meal accounts must have sufficient funds to purchase meals for remote learning days. Charging will not be allowed at the time of the parent/guardian pick-up.
General Food Services Information-
● Free & Reduced meal applications must be re-submitted every year before October 15th to avoid a disruption in meal eligibility. Applications can be completed electronically through family.titank12.com and printed copies are available at all school offices or you can access a printable copy on our website at www.corinthcsd.org under the Food Services department. New York State is still covering the reduced meal fee of $ .25, so if you are approved for reduced meals, they are essentially free.
● Breakfast and Lunch prices remain the same as last year. They are as follows;
○ Breakfast (K-12) $1.50
○ Lunch (K-5) $2.00
○ Lunch (6-12) $2.25
● We strongly recommend setting up a student account on family.titank12.com to make deposits for your student. We will not be accepting cash at the register at the time of meal purchases, however, you may send money in a sealed envelope with your student’s name, directed to the Cafeteria and we will deposit the funds at a later time.
● Students may still bring in their own breakfast and lunch from home
● There is no sharing of food allowed
● Menus have reduced options due to the several serving methods and limitations
● Menus are subject to change due to COVID-19 shortages.
● At this time, we will not be selling snacks or ice cream to grades K-8. We may possibly add it later in the year schedule permitting.

Child Nutrition Program
The mission of the Child Nutrition Program is to provide students with access to food that is appealing, healthy, acceptable, and prepared by compassionate and caring people. We manage our program in a nutritionally and financially accountable manner. We take a proactive approach by applying the dietary guidelines set forth in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. We believe every child will have the same opportunity to enjoy the benefits of effective Child Nutrition Programs with healthy food choices provided in pleasant surroundings.
Our district participates in the National School Lunch Program and follows a traditional meal pattern – Offer Versus Serve. Students are offered a meal consisting of five major components to the meal, which include protein, fruits, vegetables, grains, and fluid milk. Students must take at least three components and one must be a fruit or vegetable. We encourage students to take all five components for a nutritious, well-rounded meal.
These guidelines apply to all meals regardless of whether a student receives free lunch, a reduced-price lunch, or pays full price. A la carte prices will be charged when the necessary components are not taken. Meals are offered at low cost to encourage participation in the program.

|Elementary & MS/HS Breakfast||$1.50||$7.50||$0.25||$1.25||$2.50|
|Elementary- Ice Cream/Snacks
MS/HS- Ice Cream/Snacks
Checks and cash are accepted at the register. Be sure to write the child(ren)'s name and grade on the check. We encourage prepayments.
