BOE Gives the Green Light to Hot Lunch Program at LHK
Without a commercial kitchen, students at Lee H Kellogg School have had to brown bag it to school every day, until now. Beginning in October of 2020, hot lunches will be available to all Kellogg students for purchase. Lunches will be ordered each morning, prepared at the HVRHS kitchen and delivered to hot and fresh to Kellogg students at lunch time. Many families will be pleased to learn that their child may be eligible for free or reduced price meals. The application process for free and reduced meals is completely confidential and more info will be available soon. We hope that this program will make a difference for Kellogg students and families. Please stand by for more information while we work behind the scenes to launch this exciting new program in partnership with the HVRHS kitchen and staff.

At the June BOE virtual meeting the board recognized White Hart Inn Manager, Dan Winkley, and Kellogg School Class of 2020, along with their advisor, Amanda Spelbos, for their contributions to Kellogg School and Falls Village families. Dan Winkley headed up the White Hart Inn effort to provide lunches to Kellogg school children and their siblings during the shelter in place order (and continuing through the end of June). Kellogg 8th graders donated unclaimed proceeds from the cancelled Lasagna Dinner to the Falls Village Food Pantry, totaling $835. Click here to read the board's letter of gratitude to Mr. Winkley.

BOE recognizes co-winners of the 2019 CABE Leadership Award, Libby Menniges and Mackenzie Corkins.
