On Early Release Days, many children have complained that they are not provided an adequate lunch at school. As a result, they are arriving at Kool Kids at 11:30 a.m. and are hungry. It has been brought to our attention that the lunch served by West End Elementary on Early Release Days is a very light “snack” type lunch. For example, on one Early Release Day, we were told that the children received only two cheese sticks and a package of trail mix for lunch.
Kool Kids does provide each child one pre-packaged snack, but not until 3 p.m., and it is not adequate to be considered a lunch substitute. We suggest that you discuss this with your child and provide a lunch from home to be eaten at Kool Kids if you wish. Many of the younger children are already bringing lunches from home to eat here. If your child does not bring a lunch from home, please be aware he/she will be served one snack at Kool Kids, and will not have any other nourishment while in our care.
