Parents, Families and Guardians,

Welcome to the new 2020-2021 School Year! Our hallways are filled with life and laughter again, and students appear happy to be back into their school routine. The new school year brings the opportunity to participate in our Buddy Pack Program! We partner with the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri to bring this program to our community, and have provided student friendly meals for participating families and students K-8th grades for over the past 15 years. As a Buddy Pack participating family, your student (s) will receive a buddy bag each Friday. This bag is filled with healthy, kid-friendly foods and milk. All meals are easy and safe to prepare. The buddy packs will be delivered to participating Elementary students and placed in their back packs each Friday. Middle School students that participate will have a buddy bag placed in their locker for them to pick up and take home. This assures student confidentiality. Any bags left in lockers will be removed the following week and the student will be removed from the Buddy Bag program. Students / Families that participated in our program last year will automatically be transferred to the 2020-2021 program. Please notify the School if you wish to discontinue the Buddy Bag program. New families wishing to participate in and start the Buddy Bag program should contact : Mary Wolf, R.N. at 687-2091, stop by the Nursing Office- Room 121 in the Elementary Hallway, or text We look forward to having your student participate. Thank you.

Mary Wolf, R.N. Buddy Bag Coordinator
