Springfield Food Service Operations during Hybrid LearningChartwells logo


Providing nutritious meals to families during the COVID-19 pandemic is of the utmost importance to Springfield School District. The district is prepared to execute our Hybrid Learning model, where we will continue to feed students while they are at home and at school. To accommodate our hybrid model, we will be shifting back to the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) effect Wednesday, October 14th.

In-person options will be provided on in-school days. Every meal meets the nutritional standards set by the National School Lunch Program.

Families who qualify for free meals will still receive their meals for no cost. Paid or reduced families will have the option to purchase meals for their children. All monies must be deposited into your student’s lunch account. There will be no cash or card payment accepted at the pickup location. If you would like to use a card, an account can be created at Checks will be accepted in person.

Hybrid students will receive 3 days’ worth of meals and students enrolled in SVA will receive 5 days’ worth of meals.  The prices per student, per day, which includes breakfast and lunch for all grade levels and schools are as follows:

Paid: $4.30       Reduced: $0.70       Free: $0.00                      

*Please understand that meals may only be purchased/picked up by enrolled Springfield School District students or their parent/guardian.  Weekly online registration is required to reserve your child/children’s meals.*

Meals will be available to be purchased/picked up at the High School loading dock from 11am to 1pm every Wednesday. If you are interested in receiving/purchasing meals while the district is in the Hybrid Model, you MUST complete the online survey (link below) each week, regardless of meal status. This survey will reserve your meals for the week. Please understand if the form is not completed by the deadline, we will not be able to provide you meals during the designated time slot. You will be asked to return at the end of the pickup time but there is no guarantee meals will be available.

Weekly Meal Reservation Survey

Submissions for this form will be suspended at approximately 4pm every Monday. The form will be updated and you will be able to respond for the following week on Thursdays at approximately 8am.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we try to navigate these new systems to ensure our students receive the meals needed to excel in school.
