Press Release: Food Service at WCS

April 11, 2017


Wilmington City Schools is overwhelmed, and grateful, that so many in our community care about students in our district as much as we do. No child should go hungry at school and for many children that school breakfast or lunch may be the most nutritional meal they receive that day. Each school year we offer information about the Free and Reduced Lunch Program for families in need. Additionally, we provide daily breakfast in all 5 buildings;  all students have an opportunity to eat breakfast whether it is paid, or on a free or reduced basis; Seamless Summer Program, where any resident 18 years and younger can receive a lunch free of charge; and a Power Pack Back Pack Program (through help with the Freestore Food Bank) where food is sent home with students to ensure they have something to eat on weekends.


We do understand that outside of those programs, there are kids that sometimes come to school with no lunch money. Students are always given a complete lunch pattern meal, regardless of the monies on their account. This meal includes a meat or meat alternative, vegetable, fruit, grain, and milk according to  the meal requirements for the National School Lunch Program. Under no circumstance is a student ever denied a complete meal.   For additional information on our school breakfast and lunch programs, Free and Reduced Lunch, and how parents can check/refill the balance in their child’s account please visit our Food Service page @http://www.wilmington.k12.oh.us/departments/food-services


While we are not permitted to share details on the termination of a specific employee, we can assure you that no employee has been fired for providing a free meal to a student.  Our administration, staff, and  teachers care deeply for the students at WCS and are grateful that so many community members do as well. We welcome questions and concerns from the community, and are always appreciative when folks take the time to get the facts rather than distribute misinformation.


Sincerely,


Ron Sexton
Superintendent, Wilmington City Schools

Holmes Elementary Facebook:  It was a memorable day for over 60 Wilmington City School children from all three elementary schools chosen to receive free bicycles and helmets today!

picture of professional development activity

- Did you ever wonder what teachers do with the extra 2 hrs on late arrival day?  They become the students!  Thank you, parents, for keeping the kids for a couple of extra hours.  Our goal is to continue to grow as learners to provide the best possible opportunities for our students.  Today's topic of professional development was Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and our teachers were listening, discovering, creating, engaging, collaborating, and more.  It's exciting to find new and creative ways to navigate the barriers to learning so that each and every student can learn.
