WELCOME TO THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR!
OCTOBER 2022: ATTENTION GRANITE SCHOOL DISTRICT PARENTS
You may have received a recent email from Granite Nutrition Services titled “Quarterly Balance Payment Reminder” that contained information on a balance owed for your student(s). Please disregard this email as it may have incorrect balance information.
We have recently identified errors within the software system which has resulted in incorrect meal charges to students. We are urgently working with our software company to correct these errors and reverse all incorrect charges. We sincerely apologize for any additional stress and inconvenience this may have caused. Please keep an eye on your student’s lunch account balance and if breakfasts or lunches were charged in error, you should see any incorrect charges removed over the next few weeks.
As a reminder, over the two previous school years, COVID waivers allowed all student meals to be at no charge. The COVID waivers have ended and meals are no longer free. Meals have once again returned to pre-COVID prices for the 2022-23 school year and only those students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals will receive meals at no charge (Students that qualify for Reduced-price meals, also receive meals at no charge in Granite School District).
If your family is interested in completing an application for free or reduced-price meals, you are welcome to apply at any time during the school year at the My School Apps Website. You can also ask the school office where your students attend to print a paper application for free and reduced-price lunches that you can fill out and return, if this is more convenient for you.
Again, or sincere apologies for the incorrect information that has been sent out.

Dear Parents and Families,
As Granite’s foodservice programs are starting the new school year with plans to return to as normal service and menus as possible, we are facing unprecedented issues with the supply chain and staffing that will undoubtedly cause us to alter our posted menus with little to no notice.
We are working very closely with our distributors and manufacturers to secure both the food and supply items needed to support our program, however, the availability of these items has been changing on a daily basis.
While it is our intention to serve the posted menu every day at every school, supply issues will not make this possible throughout this school year until the supply chain issues are rectified.
When changes to the posted school menu become necessary, we will attempt to substitute the scheduled menu item with another that is as similar as possible, to the extent we are able to do so, based on the products we are able to receive.
For students requiring special dietary accommodations, rest assured we will continue to meet their dietary needs despite the existing supply chain and staffing challenges. Additionally, carbohydrate counts will be available for any substitute items.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to serving your children and supporting their education!
