School District of West Salem School Nutrition Services
Free Meals Update and Ordering Forms-Updated 9/18/2020
West Salem School District Families,
Thank you to everyone who got in their last minute meal orders for the week of the 21st. Moving forward we will be making some modifications to the ordering process to simplify things for families.
1. Everyone will automatically receive breakfast when they order lunch.
2. Only one order per family or delivery location is required.
Breakfast and lunch continue to be FREE for the week of September 28th for all children 18 and younger in the West Salem School District. This includes in-person and virtual students as well as anyone who resides in our district boundaries.
Students that will be in-person will be able to receive their free meals at school and do NOT need to pre-order. If your child is in a blended learning format, they can order meals for pick-up/delivery on the days they are virtual.
Meals can be picked up at the West Salem High School (490 North Mark Street) on the curb in the parking lot right outside the high school main office/cafeteria between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on planned school days (including Friday). When picking up meals, please do not exit your vehicle. Delivery will be drive-thru style, and someone will hand you your order.
When students are on campus, pick-up will be the preferred method, but delivery is available to those who are unable to pick-up meals. Delivery will be available to families within the school district boundaries starting at 10:00 a.m. Someone must be home to receive the orders or a cooler with a note must be left outside your door. Please contact the Director of School Nutrition, Emily Klunk, at 608-786-3078 if you have special circumstances where you require delivery outside the district boundaries.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided based on a planned menu. Please refer to the menu at wsalem.nutrislice.com or download the Nutrislice app on your Android or Apple device and search for West Salem in the Find Organization section. Please note that there is a different menu for in-person and virtual. Virtual students can choose to receive a Panther Pack in place of the lunch menu as desired. The Panther Pack includes a PB&J, a serving of fruit and vegetables, a cheese stick, a crispy snack, and milk.
A new ordering form will be required each week and will be due the Wednesday prior. If you are entering for a child that does not have a lunch PIN just enter “0”.
Due Wednesday, September 23rd
