Stillwater Public Schools Expands Meal Service

Media Release

All Stillwater children are now able to receive free breakfasts and lunches from Stillwater Public Schools (SPS) regardless of school enrollment or income status. This temporary program is made possible through the receipt of additional funding from the United States Department of Agriculture. The program is scheduled to run from September 8 to December 18, contingent upon available funding. 

Free meals are available for not only all SPS students but for all children ages 1-18, regardless of free or reduced lunch status. Meals can be picked up each day by a parent or guardian; the child does not need to be present. One breakfast and one lunch per child will be given each day. 

Meals will be available for curbside pickup for all children daily at the following locations and times: 

○ 9:00 am -10:00 am Skyline and Westwood 

○ 11:00 am -12:00 pm Lincoln Academy, Richmond, Sangre Ridge, and Stillwater High School 

○ 12:00 pm -1:00 pm Highland Park, Will Rogers, Stillwater Middle School, and Stillwater Junior High 

When the COVID-19 Alert Level lessens and SPS transitions back to face to face instruction, SPS students in Traditional Learning will receive meals during their regular school mealtimes, while Virtual Learning students, and the other children of Stillwater, will continue to have access to school lunches as the times and locations listed above. 

SPS Nutrition Services asks that families sign up weekly for meals at https://sps.blue/ns2020 to help staff prepare appropriate quantities. Families can also call the school kitchen to order meals. Families with students at multiple schools should choose one site to pick-up all meals. 

To assist SPS Nutrition Services cooperation with the USDA, all families, regardless of income level, should complete a 2020-2021 Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application at www.schoolcafe.com. A new application is required every year for each family in the district. Families should list all students attending SPS, regardless of whether they are participating in Traditional, Distance, or Virtual Education. 

Questions should be directed to the Stillwater School Nutrition Services Department at 405-533-6445 or nutrition@stillwaterschools.com

The Pandemic-EBT or P-EBT benefits program is administered by Oklahoma Department of Human Services. P-EBT questions should be directed to DHS.
