Welcome Students, Parents, and Staff:
Recently, the US Congress passed the HHFKA. This is the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act. The overall purpose of this legislation is to prevent hunger and provide meal options which are low in sodium, fats, sugars, and calories. This has been done in attempt to address the growing obesity problem among America's youth.
What does this mean for school children? On main lunch the milk offering is now fat free or 1%. Students must also take a fruit or vegetable with the main protein offerings. All juices served must be 100% juice.
Will you still have snacks and frozen treats? Yes. All our offerings will meet the new nutritional guidelines. The Dracut Public Schools in cooperation with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education use the John Stalker Institute "A" list as a point of reference for all items served. All our items are "A" list approved. Please refer to their site at johnstalkerinstitute.org
The Dracut Public Schools will continue to work with various parent groups, booster organizations and schools to bring about the changes in the most positive way.
We hope you enjoy our new healthy offerings.
Parents seeking free and reduced lunch for students may contact their school office for an application. It is the policy of the Dracut Public Schools that all students eligible for free and reduced lunch have all transportation, athletic and music fees waived.
