Virtual Student Meal Pick-Up Information for Grades K-9

Grab-and-Go meals are available by pre-order only for virtual students in Grades K-9.

  • The deadline for pre-ordering meals for the following week is every Friday at 12:00 PM. 
  • The form opens to accept orders for the following week on Wednesdays.
  • Parents/guardians may pre-order the meals using this online form
  • Parents will need to specify on the form if they would like breakfast, lunch, or both meals. 
  • Parents/guardians are allowed to pick up meals for the virtual student (students do not have to be present for pick up). 
  • Pick up is located at the virtual students’ designated school during specified times (see chart below). The designated school does not have to be the school the virtual student is enrolled at. For instance, a Ballman virtual student can pick up meals at Beard if they designate Beard as the pick-up location on the form. 

For convenience, families may opt to pick up meals at the school of their choice for as many virtual students that are in that family. There is an option on the form to designate the school of choice for pick-up. Please keep in mind that serving sizes do differ from elementary, junior high and high school.
