Meal Service During Distant Leaning

The El Monte City School District is committed to serving nutritious meals to our students during distance learning. The District will provide multiple opportunities for families to come by and pick up five days worth of meals (includes breakfast, lunch, snack, and supper) at no cost for each student enrolled in the District. Starting Monday August 24, families will have the opportunity to pick up these meals once a week from their child’s school based on the schedule seen below.
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Durfee Jeff Seymour FC New Lexington Cleminson Gidley
Rio Vista Potrero Rio Hondo Cortada CherryLee
Wilkerson Shirpser Wright Legore Columbia
Schools will distribute meals from 3-6pm in the school parking lot. To accommodate families who may not be able to pick up meals in the afternoon, the Jeff Seymour Family Center will provide special distribution hours on Tuesdays from 7-10am.  
A meal distribution card will be required for each student in order to receive meals. However, students do not need to be present when parents are picking up meals. These meal cards will include a unique barcode for each student that will be scanned when picking up meals. The meal distribution cards will be distributed out through our new ParentSquare communication system. If you have not yet registered your parent account through ParentSquare, please do so by visiting www.parentsquare.com

If your assigned pick up date happens to fall on a holiday, meals can be picked up the next day at the same school. Families with children at multiple schools may pick up meals for all enrolled students at a school location of their choice.   

For families that have a conflict in their schedule, require a special diet meal accommodation for their child, do not have a means to heat or refrigerate five days worth of meals, or are faced with other unique circumstances, an alternative method to receive meals may be provided. Please contact our Child Nutrition Department at 626-453-3733.

To kick the school year off, meals will be distributed at all schools on Thursday August 20 from 3-6pm.   
Come by and pick up your meals and a bonus First Day of School treat for your child!
