WTPS Foodservices: PHASE V PLAN

Wayne Public School’s Return to School Plan Phase 5 begins on Monday April 19, 2021. This letter is to help the school community understand what the Wayne Schools foodservices team is offering to every student. The Phase 5 plan will expand the secondary school’s (Middle & High Schools) day to a full day schedule by cohort with a lunch period. For elementary schools, the k-2 cohorts will be eliminated on 4/19 and the 3-5 cohorts will be eliminated on 4/26.  Elementary school dismissal will remain at 1:45pm without a lunch period. Wayne Schools is approved until the end of June 2021 to serve free breakfast and free lunch to every student in the district.

The Preakness Early Childhood Center and Elementary schools will still have the option to preorder their lunches each week to be delivered to the classroom at dismissal. The preorder lunch site is open every week starting on Wednesday at 5pm and closes on Sunday by 4pm for the upcoming week. The site link can be found on the district website’s Foodservice Page.

The lunches will be prepared in a safe kitchen and individually packaged for service.
