ATTENTION ACPSD PARENTS AND GUARDIANS - To ensure meal availability for every student regardless of his/her instructional model, Aiken County Public Schools’ Food Service Department has provided meal options for any student wishing to participate. The ordering process and other details are provided below.
Utilizing a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Waiver, all Aiken County Public Schools' enrolled students can now receive, at no cost to the student, one breakfast and one lunch daily, whether participating in the Hybrid Model of Instruction or Aiken Innovate through June 30, 2021, or before if USDA funds are depleted.
All charges for meals from Sept 1, 2020, will be refunded to the student's account. Meals are to continue to be pre-ordered, using the existing online order links.
The district will return to a Hybrid model beginning on Monday, November 30th, and continue until the Christmas Holiday.
Elementary Schools will remain at 100% capacity for four days, face-to-face, each week (Monday - Thursday) with remote instruction on Fridays. Students can place a weekly order to pick up two meals (breakfast and lunch) on Thursdays before they leave school. The link to place elementary orders is here.
