Dear Germantown Hills Families, 

Welcome back to school! I hope your student had a wonderful first day. I would like to address a few things regarding our lunch program this year. First of all, I am excited to announce that all meals are FREE this year again! This is great news to help our students stay focused throughout the day. Please talk to your student, and let them know to let their teacher know first thing in the morning if they will like one. This will allow us to prepare enough meals for everyone. 

Unfortunately, Milks with cold lunch will be charged a .30 cents for  milk, since it is separate from a reimbursable meal. The USDA only allows us to claim meals if they are all components, which exempts single milk purchases. 

For our middle school students, I am sad to announce that we will not be able to start the year with a salad bar option. We are hoping that we will be able to soon offer it again. 

Middle school students will have the option to purchase bottled water, extra milks, drinks, extra entrees, and snack options again. These will be an additional charge to the students account, so please keep that in mind. If a student has a negative balance, the privilege of purchasing “extras” will be frozen until the account becomes current. 

I hope your student will have a great year. If you have any questions about the lunch program, please feel free to contact me at penneyt@ghills69.com

Thank you & Here’s to a wonderful year!!!
