CHANGES TO OUR LUNCH PROGRAM

Dear Bear Lake School District Parents/Guardians, The USDA recently announced the release of funds allowing schools to provide FREE meals to all students through 2020/2021 school year. We know this will help many families in the Bear Lake community that might not be eligible for free/reduced meals but are still experiencing a hardship due to the effects of COVID 19. Breakfast in Bear Lake School District has always been free the change will be implementing FREE lunch starting October 1st 2020 and it will run until the end of the school year. This opportunity will only be offered during regular school days and service times will remain the same. Please note: Only full meals are free. If your child wants individual items only such as mile, or just the main meal they will need to purchase these. I attached a list of the prices for each item. I hope this brings some help and relief to families especially as we are approaching the holidays. As always, thank you for supporting the Bear Lake School Lunch Program.

PBIS

We want you to know what we’re all about right now as we implement the framework for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) in our school. PBIS is an approach schools can use to improve school safety and promote positive behavior. It also helps schools decide how to respond to a child who misbehaves. At its heart, PBIS calls on our schools to teach kids about behavior, just as we would teach about any other subject—like reading or math. PBIS recognizes that kids can only meet behavior expectations if they know what the expectations are. A hallmark of a school using PBIS is that everyone knows what appropriate behavior looks like, sounds like and feels like. Throughout the school day—in class, at lunch, on the playground or on a bus—kids understand what’s expected of them. PBIS has a few important guiding principles: • Every child can learn proper behavior. • Stepping in early can prevent more serious behavior problems. • Children are different from one another and schools need to provide many kinds of behavior support. • How schools teach behavior should be based on research and science. • Following a child’s behavioral progress is important. • Schools must gather and use data to make decisions about behavior problems. Our school will be openly and routinely recognizing great behavior choices from students! And we will teach, and re-teach expected behaviors for all school settings all through the school year. If you hear your child talking about “The A.J. Way”… they are talking about their school’s promotion of positive behaviors! Join us as we increase pride in ourselves and our school by being great citizens of our school communities!
