    Changes to Food Service for 2022-23

    Congress did not extend federal school meal waivers and school meals will no longer be available to all students free of charge effective at the start of School Year (SY) 2022-23.

    Schools must make available and resume processing free and reduced price meal applications from households for SY 2022-23. This ensures students in qualifying households receive free or reduced priced meal benefits and schools receive Kansas At-Risk funding. Students who do not qualify for free meals will be charged for each meal they take. For more information about cost of meals for full-price and reduced benefits, see the "Food Service" page under the District tab on the USD 509 website.

    Sunflower Summer 2022

    The Kansas Department of Education is once again providing families with the opportunity to experience several Kansas attractions at no cost from late May through early August! Sunflower Summer is a collaborative effort among KSDE, KU's Center for Public Partnerships and Research (KU-CPPR), and Greenbush.

    Sunflower Summer 2022 will feature free access to 87 different venues, 15 FREE Greenbush Summer Camps, a FREE 3-Day Boy Scout Camp, and 5 Bonus Events across Kansas! 38 of the venues are "ticketed" meaning there is typically an admission fee, but that is covered for families through the Sunflower Summer program. Accessing these free events will be easy! There is an app for iPhone or Android that is nearly ready...when it is, just download the app, plan your day trips, and go!
