Baldwyn Schools to offer free meals to all students for 2021-22 school year

With the devastating impact of Covid-19 in 2020 in the US, public schools across America were able to benefit from free meals for all students K-12 under the US Department of Agriculture Federal Policy updates. The effort to help provide healthy and nutritious meals to all children will continue through May 2022.

Under the Seamless Summer Option, the Child Nutrition Department will offer free meals for the 21/22 school year. Meal applications aren’t required but they are recommended for those who are receiving Snap, TANF, FDPIR, or P-EBT. Meal applications should be completed through the Titan Application program featured on our website at www.baldwynschools.com.

“This is a very positive impact on our students during this continued pandemic. Our lunchroom staff has done a terrific job this past year in helping us provide nutritious meals to our students and children in the community during these difficult times,”BSD Nutrition Director Brittni Buchanan noted. 

“We are so excited to have the resources to continue to provide these services to all students this year. This opportunity makes it easier on our staff and the families of our students.”

"We are truly grateful for this opportunity provided by the US Department of Agriculture. Knowing that all of our students will have access to healthy meals makes one step closer to affording our district the opportunity to meet the educational and life needs of our students," Superintendent Raymond Craven noted. 

In accordance with Federal Law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

To file a complaint of discrimination, write USDA, Director, Office of Adjudication, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C. 20250-9410 or call toll free (866) 632-9992 (Voice). Individuals who are hearing impaired or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339; or (800) 845-6136 (Spanish). USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

Our program follows the USDA guidelines and the Healthy, Hunger-Free Child's Act of 2010.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

Baldwyn Schools to host extended school in June, meals provided

After one of the most challenging school years in American history, Baldwyn School District is excited to announce the opportunity to offer an extended school during the month of June. 

During June 1-21, students in grades K-12th will be able to attend extended school from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. each week day at Baldwyn Schools. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to students in attendance.

The extended school will be for students who need enrichment, reinforcement, and credit recovery. Parents will be contacted with more details about their child’s participation in the extended school classes. Certified teachers will be on site during the program.

“We are very fortunate to be able to offer this extended school program for our students. We feel that this is a need in our community. We want to make sure every student in our district has the opportunity to continue to be successful in their education,” Superintendent Jason McKay said. 

 

Summer Feeding Program

In addition to the extended school program, Baldwyn Schools in partnership with USDA Federal Grants, will be offering a Summer Feeding Program for any child age 18 and under. Children may pick up breakfast and lunch on week days from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. during June 1-21. Children do not have to be Baldwyn students, and do not have to be attending the extended school program to receive free meals in June. 

“We are so excited to be able to continue to our students and all children ages 18 and under free breakfast and lunch June 1-21. We want to do what we can to provide nutritious meals to the children of our community,” Food and Nutrition Director Brittni Buchanan said. 

“We are very proud of Mrs. Buchanan and the lunch room staff for spearheading this opportunity for all children in the area to have meals this summer,” Superintendent Jason McKay added.

Baldwyn Schools takes precautions; Nov. 30-Dec. 4 set as virtual learning week

As temperatures decrease, the number of COVID-19 cases increase throughout the state of Mississippi according to the Mississippi Department of Health daily reports. 

With this knowledge, Baldwyn School District administration is taking precautionary action and declaring a virtual week of learning for K-12 students from Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4. 

“This is a precautionary measure I feel that our district should take advantage of after our students and staff have been out for a week of school for the Thanksgiving holiday (November 23-27),” Superintendent Jason McKay explained.

“There is no mass quarantine at this time, but we feel this will enable us to prevent having to have a mass quarantine or shut down for a longer period of time in the future.”

Parents, family, and students will be notified this week by teachers of how their student will continue to do their school assignments during the virtual week of learning. 

“For the students who are here on campus with us this week, they will all receive paper packets of assignments as a back-up to complete if they are unable to use the internet and complete assignments on Canvas. Assignments will be available on both Canvas and through paper packets for students to complete,” Superintendent McKay added.

“We want to make sure that every student has an opportunity to continue to learn and do their best with their assignments during this virtual week.”

Virtual students will continue to do their work on student iPads via Canvas. If a student is having problems with the internet or submitting assignments online, please contact your student’s school office to request a paper packet pick-up. 

The district staff and teachers will be on campus the week of virtual week and will be available via email and School Status for parents and students to communicate with them about the week’s assignments. All paper packets should be returned to teachers on Monday, December 7 when students resume on-campus classes. 

School buses will also run from 9-10 a.m. all five days during virtual week to deliver breakfast and lunch meals to students if requested. Please contact the BES cafeteria staff at 365-1012 for grades K-4th and BHS cafeteria staff at 365-1017 for grades 5-12th if you would like to request meals to be delivered to your child during virtual week. Please provide your child’s name, grade, and bus number/address when requesting meals. Remember that all meals are free this school year to all students. However, please make sure you have completed the Titan meal application online at www.baldwynschools.com. 

Baldwyn Schools will be closed during Thanksgiving holiday week Monday, November 23 through Friday, November 27. School will resume on Monday, November as virtual learning week through Friday, December 4. Students who are on-campus traditional students will return to class in-person on Monday, December 7. Christmas holidays will begin Monday, December 21 for all staff and students.

BSD offers free meals to all students through 2020

Baldwyn Schools offers free meals to all students through 2020

Baldwyn School District is excited to announce that all students in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade will receive free meals at school now through December 31, 2020. 

This opportunity was made possible by the U.S. Department of Agriculture extending it’s Summer Food Service Program that began with the COVID-19 pandemic crisis in the spring. This change will address the issues of meal counting and eligibility related to the various learning models being utilized. USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is extending the following waivers for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and Seamless Summer Option (SSO) through the end of 2020, or until available funding runs out:

  • Allowing SFSP and SSO meals to be served in all areas and at no cost;

  • Permitting meals to be served outside of the typically-required group settings and meal times;

  • Waiving meal pattern requirements as necessary; and

  • Allowing parents and guardians to pick-up meals for their children.

“This is a very positive impact on our students during this continued pandemic. Our lunchroom staff has done a terrific job since the spring helping us provide nutritious meals to our students and children in the community during these difficult times,”BSD Nutrition Director Britnni Buchanan noted. 

“We are so excited to have the resources to continue to provide these services to all students this year. This opportunity makes it easier on our staff and the families of our students.”

Breakfast and lunch will look different this year, however. To continue reducing the spread of COVID-19, students will be instructed to grab meals and go to the classroom to eat. This instruction will help keep less large numbers of students congested together. 

At-home virtual learners can have their daily breakfast and lunch picked up at the schools' cafeterias between 9-10 a.m. each week day school is open. 

"This is an unprecedented move by our country providing positive steps that relieves some pressure off families by helping provide meals during these difficult times," Superintendent Jason McKay said.

Food services, distance learning to resume April 27

Baldwyn Schools to resume child food services, distance learning

Baldwyn School District plans to resume offering Grab and Go Meals to children under 18 along with distance learning packets on Monday, April 27.

The district had recently halted all services due to Governor Tate Reeve’s shelter in place order and the threat of the peak of COVID-19 in our state during the past weeks.

“We know that this time has been hard on all families in some capacity. We are excited to be able to offer food services to our students again to help make sure they have access to nutritious meals and are staying healthy,” Baldwyn Schools Nutrition Director Brittni Buchanan noted.

Beginning Monday, parents and students can pick up Grab and Go Meals on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The location of pick-up has changed to the BHS cafeteria instead of the BHS gym. Distance learning packets for student work through May 18 will also be available for pick during these times.

Distance learning has been continued on Google Classroom since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. However, it is understood that not all students and teachers have internet access at home. New paper packets of student work will begin on Monday.

Families picking up meals or distance learning packets should follow the same guidelines and instructions for pick up as previous services at the BHS gym, except pick up will be at the BHS cafeteria.

“Safety of our students and staff is always our number one concern. We are doing the best we can to service our students during this difficult time. We appreciate our school board and administration working diligently daily to provide services to our staff and students,” Superintendent Jason McKay said.

Please help us continue to make sure everyone’s health is our number one concern by following CDC recommended social distancing and sanitation during food service pick up times. 

Instructions for food service pick up: 

1. Enter the BHS auditorium/cafeteria parking lot from Highway 145/Fourth Street (near the flashing sign).

2. Stay in your vehicle at all times. 

3. Car line will form for pick up at BHS cafeteria main entrance. 

4. Child(ren) must be present for a staff person to approach vehicle and take a count, and then they bring food to vehicle. Meals will be provided per child. (Please inform a staff member of your child’s teacher name and grade for distance learning packets.)

5. Cones will direct exiting instructions.

NOTE: We appreciate all the help and support during this time, but we will not need any volunteers for these services. We want to keep the health and safety of our employees and students a priority by operating with minimum staff. 

 
Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony Plans

Baldwyn Schools plans 2020 graduation amid COVID-19 crisis

While graduation services across the country have always been a traditional event to celebrate the milestone of students transitioning into adulthood, the COVID-19 national crisis has Baldwyn school board and administration discussing non-traditional alternatives to hold the 2020 graduation ceremony.

“We understand that graduation is something every student looks forward to and expects it to be a certain way. However, our current health crisis situation has our hands tied to be able to provide the traditional graduation ceremony for our seniors,” Superintendent Jason McKay said.

At this time with the current CDC guidelines and Mississippi Department of Education requirements, Baldwyn High School graduation is being moved from May 22 to June 4, 2020.

“We ask that parents and seniors make this date available as the new graduation date. Please also keep in mind that we will have to adjust according to the current health crisis situation at that time also,” Superintendent McKay added.

“Our school board, administration, and staff are adjusting to plans and possibilities daily to make this graduation ceremony the best it can be for our seniors and their families. We understand this is not the ideal situation for any graduate and their family, but we will have the best ceremony possible while still keeping our staff, students, and their families safe.”

While there are many graduation details that continue to be uncertain until closer to time of assessing the health crisis threat, Baldwyn School District will be sure to provide a live streaming of the 2020 BHS Graduation service for the public and extended families to view.

“At this time we are looking at our graduation ceremony being outside and being limited to graduates with restrictions on family/guest attendance. We will be contacting senior parents and seniors about the details closer to time when more health safety concerns are known,” Superintendent McKay said.

“Again we know this is not the ideal situation or traditional expectations of a graduation ceremony, but with the help of the community we want to offer the best possible graduation ceremony we can for our class of 2020. The ramifications of being over cautious seem great, but the ramifications of not being over cautious could be so much greater.”

Baldwyn School District to offer food services, continue education amid COVID-19 crisis

Baldwyn School District may have closed their doors at this time of concern for the COVID-19 epidemic; however, administration and the board members are working diligently daily to devise plans for the health, safety, and education of their staff and students.

Superintendent Jason McKay is meeting today with District Nutrition Director Brittni Buchanan to organize plans to offer food to students through the unexpected times ahead. Currently, Baldwyn School District is closed March 16-20, and advisements from government and medical organizations are looking to extend those closure times.

“Although we are dealing with many unknowns at this time, the health and safety of our students comes first as always. Our community can rest assured that our school board and administration has our students on our minds and hearts very heavily right now,” Superintendent McKay said.

“We have met multiple times already since the COVID-19 outbreak crisis began, and we will continue to meet to make decisions on a day-to-day basis to assess and decide what is best for our students during this time.”

Buchanan is in the process of working with the state departments to be able to offer food services to our students as soon as possible.

“We don’t know the details of the plan yet, but we want to be able to offer our students food access during their time at home. We want students to stay healthy, and any attempts to provide food services to them during this time will be sought out and offered,” Buchanan noted.

Prior to officially closing the school district for this week, Superintendent McKay and the board members were determined to stay ahead of the medical warnings. Cleaning supplies such as Lysol and hand-sanitizer and more were ordered and stocked in each classroom.

“I want to commend Mr. Mike Underwood for his hard work during our Spring Break week. He organized the ordering of supplies, stocking of supplies, and cleaning efforts prior to the return the school after the traditional Spring Break session,” Superintendent McKay added.

Superintendent McKay also wants parents and families to be aware that they are discussing ways to continue to educate students from home. The Baldwyn School District Board will make these plans official tomorrow after meeting. Details of food services and continuing education will be released after the meeting.
