    Free School Meals: We recently learned that SVSD will be able to continue to provide school meals free of charge to students through the 2020-21 school year, thanks to a waiver from the USDA that will reimburse school districts during this pandemic. In addition to supporting meal service at our schools for in-person learners, the district will continue making nutritious meals available for students learning remotely.  Delivery times and pick-up locations may be adjusted when in-person learning begins. Watch for updated times and locations of our meals “to go” program posted on the Distance Learning 2.0 Food Services webpage.
