NEW to Hot Lunch for 2019-2020
In the Spring of 2019, the decision was made to end our Hot Lunch Program contract with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (D.P.I.). As a result, we are now able to accept food donations for the Hot Lunch Program.
If you would like to donate food items to the Hot Lunch Program, please contact Diane Dvorak (Cook) at 715-352-3111 to make those arrangements.

Local Wellness Policy (LWP)
Local Wellness Policy
As outlined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, this policy is our school’s guideline establishing an environment to promote the health, well being, and ability to learn of our students
The LWP was discussed during the January 12, 2019 Education Committee meeting. During the meeting, the LWP was discussed, and changes were made to the LWP. Changes included those both recommended by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) as part of the Hot Lunch Program’s triennial Administrative Review and those recommended by Committee Members present at the meeting.
The portion of the Education Committee Meeting minutes relevant to the discussion on the LWP are included below:
Hot Lunch Policy: Marie discussed the current Local Wellness Policy. DPI has already reviewed the information and requested a few changes. Changes were made to the number of minutes both elementary students and middle school students receive physical education throughout the year. The Education Committee will review this policy. At present, it is recommended to review it every three years minimally, however it was decided by the committee to review it yearly at the first meeting of the year. A motion was made by Richard Wirkus and seconded by Patty Myska. This policy is available upon request at the school office or on our website.
