Dear Milaca Families - 

This has been an exciting first week of school! It is good to see students back in the building and they are excited to be here! Students are adjusting well to the procedures put in place to limit contact and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for the help and support that you provide from home!

Beginning next week, there are some changes to the meal program, and the procedures for visitors/guests and when dropping off items for students.

Free Meals For All Students!
Milaca Public Schools has qualified for the extension of the free meal program for all children ages 1 to 18! We will begin free breakfast and lunch meal service for all on-site school-aged students starting Monday, September 14. The USDA has extended this program to assist districts and households in feeding kids; however, the benefit has been extended only through December 31, 2020, or sooner if the Federal funds run out. We will inform you when this benefit ends and meals return to be fee-based. If your student has a second lunch or extra items their accounts will be charged accordingly; otherwise, the student's current meal account balance will be frozen until fee-based meals return.

For distance learning students or households with younger siblings at home, you may pick up meals starting Wednesday, September 16, from 11:30 AM - 1:15 PM, at the Milaca High School Cafeteria doors. Menus are available on the website. If you are a distance learning family or have younger children at home and would like to pick up meals, please complete this short survey so we can prepare the proper number of meals. 
Visitors & Guests

Visitors and guests are limited to those who have an appointment. If you would like to meet with an administrator or your student’s teacher, you need to call ahead and schedule an appointment. Please remember to bring your driver’s license when you arrive.

Dropping Off Student Items
Now and then, something gets left at home that will be needed during the school day. We ask that you limit dropped items to school necessities, i.e., Chromebooks, homework, etc. No food, birthday treats, or other sharable items can be dropped off.

Items for High School Students: When dropping off items, leave the item on the table in the District Office vestibule. There will be tape and markers available for you to label the item with your student’s first and last name, if not already labeled. Once you have left the item, call the high school office (320-982-7206). The office will send a pass to your student to pick up the item. Items dropped off will not be immediately delivered to the student, nor is the district responsible for the items. 

Items for Elementary Students: When dropping off items, leave the item on the table in the Elementary Office. There will be tape and markers available for you to label the item with your student’s first and last name, if not already labeled. The office will call your student down to pick up the item.

By working together to limit COVID-19 exposure, we can keep our students and staff healthy and safe; which in turn, keeps our students in school. Thank you for your cooperation in protecting our community. 

Warmest regards,

Dr. David Wedin
Superintendent
