A FEW REMINDERS FOR THE START OF SCHOOL

MEAL ACCOUNTS

Family Portal Parents are encouraged to create a family portal at family.titank12.com. This portal allows parents to manage their student’s meal accounts. By linking all of their students to their portal they can monitor meal transactions, transfer money between them, set spending limits for their student, receive low balance email notifications, make online payments, and even apply for Free/Reduced school meals. (The online payment site last year, PayForIt.net is no longer operational) When using Titan, type Corvallis in the district box. Parents will need to include the leading zero in the student ID number and use preferred student name.

Free & Reduced Meals Parents and guardians must submit a new application each year unless they already received an email or letter saying their student has already been approved for the current year. Students approved for last year are carried over for 30 days of the new school year or until a new application is processed. The carryover expiration date is October 7, 2019. If you have not yet received notification and want to know if your child has been approved for Free or Reduced meals, please log in to the family portal and link your child. You will be able to see their eligibility as well as carryover expiration date or current year approval. (Note: The ODE online application website (https://www.ode.state.or.us/apps/frlapp) is still available.

Meal Prices Meal prices have not increased for the last 5 years. Due to increased labor, benefits, food costs and USDA regulations, meal prices will increase slightly this year and are listed below. Students approved for Reduced Price will still have meals at no charge. Students eligible for Free or Reduced meals must have a complete meal for it to be at no charge. “Milk only” can be purchased $.60.

Elementary:   Breakfast $1.75 / Lunch  $2.75

Adults:            Breakfast $2.35 / Lunch $4.00

Milk Only:      $.60

If a student brings their lunch from home and wants to get a milk, they will need to pay cash or have money in their meal account. Otherwise, the lunch from home should include something to drink or water is always available.

September Menu available here

MEDICATION

Any medication (including cough drops) that your child needs during the school day must be brought in and picked up by an adult.  There are forms that need to be completed before the school can dispense any medication to your child. All medication needs to be in the original container.

AFTER SCHOOL PLANS

Earlier this week, your child should have brought home an After school Plans (blue) form to be completed.  If you haven’t already, please complete and return to school next week.

As plans change throughout the year, this information can be updated by letting the office know.

Just a reminder that our school day ends at 2:30 pm Monday – Thursday and at 1:30 on Friday.  Students should be picked up by 2:40 (1:40) unless participating in an after school activity.

PICTURE DAY

Lifetouch will be here on Tuesday, September 17th for school pictures.  Every student will have their picture taken even if they don’t order a packet.  Order forms will be sent home with your child next week.  If you would like assistance with a basic package, let the office know at 541-757-4760
