Hello NDPA Parents,

Important information from our cafeteria PLEASE READ!

The USDA has announced schools can apply to provide free lunch to ALL students. NDPA has received this funding and will begin serving FREE LUNCH to all current students starting today, Monday, September 14, through December, or until the funding runs out.

Here’s how it will work:

  1. On days your child attends school they can partake of a free hot meal in the cafeteria. See the daily lunch schedule here:
  2. At the end of each day your child attends school, they need to come by the cafeteria to pick up their free sack lunch to take home for virtual learning days. These lunches will be available until our limited quantity runs out. Pick up will work as follows: • 5th-9th grades will enter through the inside north gym doors, pick up a lunch, and leave out the east doors. • 1st-4th grade students will enter the Jr. high gym from the south gym doors, pick up a lunch, and leave through the East doors. Please make sure to refrigerate all sack lunch items that should remain cold.

ONLINE ONLY students will still pick up on scheduled days and times until further notice. Please continue to preorder using the online system:

Please continue to apply for free or reduced lunch, when funds run out, we will return to the free, reduced, or full pay methods. Applications on file for the 2020-2021 year do not need to reapply. If you have not applied for the 2020-2021 year, please do so to make sure that when this expires you will have approval in place. *You can apply anytime throughout the year as your income changes.

Our goal is to provide nutritious and delicious meals and help ease some of your financial burdens at this time.

Roaring good lunches!
