REMOTE LEARNING MEAL UPDATES
LPS Nutrition Services will continue to provide meals during any periods of remote learning. As a result of federal funding, all meals will remain FREE for ALL students through the end of the school year. All students and families are welcome to pick up meals at no charge.
Beginning Monday, November 30th we will be transitioning to our mobile meal distribution with school buses! Meal distribution on the bus routes, Arapahoe High School, and Littleton High School will be every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. There will also be an evening meal distribution on Mondays from 4:30 PM- 5:30 PM at Littleton High School. Please see the link below for bus stop times and locations.
*Please note route updates (in red on documents linked below) will begin on 12/4/20*

*IMPORTANT NOTE: As of September 1, 2020, ALL meals for ALL students will be FREE. However, we request that you please still apply for free and reduced meals as this flexibility will only last until May 2021 (the end of the 20-21 School Year).
Prior Year Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits Extended 30 Days into the 2020-2021 School Year!
If your student qualified for free or reduced meal benefits last school year, those benefits will be extended into the first 30 days of the 2020-2021 school year. A new application must be completed each school year. Any application that is not completed and processed within the first 30 days of the school year, will be changed to paying status. While at this time all students are eating for free, once USDA funding end in May 2021, students will be charged at their eligibility status. Families are held responsible for any charges that accrue anytime between benefit status lapses. Get your applications completed soon! Applying online is the fastest way to get your application processed, or pick up an application from your school's front office or kitchen staff.
