Independence High School

Provo City School District’s Child Nutrition Program is committed to providing our students and school communities with nutritious and great-tasting meals. To that end, the Child Nutrition Program will resume breakfast and lunch meal service on the first day of school as follows:

Breakfast

A grab-n-go breakfast will be provided in the cafeteria in all elementary and secondary schools following proper social distancing guidelines. Please check your school’s website under school information for specific breakfast serving times.

Lunch for Elementary In-School Learning

Lunch meal service options will be consistent across all elementary schools for in-school learning. However, each school is unique and school administrators will plan their lunch meal service accordingly with regards to logistics and proper social distancing guidelines. For the fall school opening, lunch meal service at the elementary level will include a grab-n-go lunch with:

  • Students eating in the cafeteria
  • Students eating outside while the weather permits
  • Students eating in their classrooms

Lunch for Secondary In-School Learning

For in-person learning at the secondary school level, lunch will be offered for students in multiple serving areas as a grab-n-go option.

Breakfast and Lunch for Home Study Learning and Quarantined Students

Students participating in the Home Study option while enrolled in one of our 18 schools have the option to pick up a grab-n-go meal sack. Grab-n-go meal sacks may contain breakfast and lunch for multiple school days as shown on the table below. Students enrolled in the Home Study option full time may order and pick up meals daily following the steps listed below. If any family enrolled in the Home Study option experiences a hardship with daily meal pick up, please contact Laura Larsen at (801) 374-4867 or at laural@provo.edu to make other arrangements. Until the Federal Government grants a waiver, students enrolled in e-School are not eligible for school meal service.

  • Parents/guardians must pre-order meals for their students by calling (801) 221-9397 or (801) 374-4825 between 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. at least one day before the meal is needed. If preferred, parents may choose to call only once per week, and then must provide the dates with the meals needed. Meals may also be pre-ordered online at ITSMealsProvo.com or provo.edu/child-nutrition/.
  • The students’ full name and school I.D. number are required at time of food order.
  • Meals will be charged according to student’s meal eligibility, i.e., free, reduced or paid.
  • Home Study and quarantined students only may choose to pick up a meal sack at another Provo District school closer to their home. Parents must then also provide the name of their student’s home school and the school they wish to pick their meals up at.
  • The parent or guardian, or secondary school student may pick up pre-ordered meals from the school’s designated pick up location between 10:30 to 11:00 a.m.

As a reminder, a new free and reduced meal application must be filled out annually and submitted to the Child Nutrition office by September 30th to avoid any disruption of current meal benefits.

We recommend families apply for school meal benefits online. The process is quick, easy and FREE, and we’ll be able to review your application much faster than the traditional paper method. This method also facilitates a socially distanced, contact free application process for our families! Online lunch applications are currently accepted for the new school year via www.schoollunchapp.com. Links are also available on district and school websites, and following online student registration steps. Please email grantb@provo.edu to request a paper application if preferred.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
