Welcome back POLAHS!
The United States Department of Agriculture extended the use of the Seamless Summer Option(SSO), the free meal program that POLAHS offered during the spring semester’s school closures due to COVID-19. This means that meals will now be provided to both enrolled students and non-enrolled children in the San Pedro community. This program has been made available through December 31, 2020.
Beginning September 8th, POLAHS will provide free and nutritious meals to children age 18 and under. Additionally, if you have a child that is over the age of 18 with a disability, they will be given a meal. Individual children or parents may pick up meals. Children do not have to be present with adults when picking up meals.
We will set up on the blacktop every Tuesday from 2:00 pm- 4:00 pm. Each child will be given 5 ready to heat up lunches. Beginning Tuesday September 15th, each child will be given 5 ready to heat up breakfasts along with their lunches.
- Enter through the POLAHS driveway on 5th Street, pick up near black top, exit on 3rd St.
- Students will be provided with 5 free breakfasts in addition to lunch beginning 9/15/20.
- 5 free lunches to take home in one package each Tuesday. Meals will be served cold but can be heated at home.
- Please abide by all traffic rules.
- Safety is our number one priority so please be courteous and wear a mask when picking up meals.
- Families may walk up to collect meals but must not remain on or around campus.
- If you are walking up, please follow pedestrian safety signs and maintain a 6 foot distance.
POLAHS participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), which is a federally funded program that assists in providing nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free meals to students each day. Students may purchase a pre-packaged meal for the price of $3.00 per meal per day. Those who qualify under U.S. Department of Agriculture income guidelines may receive free meals, or meals at a reduced price of $0.40.
POLAHS partnered with TITAN to accept applications for the Free or Reduced waiver. Through TITAN, you can also add funds to your child's account. You must complete a School Lunch Application for your child before the beginning of every school year. Please complete the School Lunch Application as soon as possible to determine your child's eligibility for Free or Reduced Meals. Please see the TITAN Parent Portal FAQ Sheet for instructions on creating an account.
We are partnering again with Better 4 You Meals, a third party food vendor, who is dedicated to transforming the health and habits of this generation’s students through healthy, fresh and delicious food. All meals served meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
If your child needs special accommodations for his/her meals, please fill out the form below and return it to the Food & Nutrition Services Coordinator, Denise Alejandrez, as soon as possible. It needs to be signed by a state-licensed healthcare professional in California (a licensed physician, a physician assistant or a nurse practitioner).
