Food Service Information for January 11th - March 26th

As the district plans to re-open for in-person classes on Monday, January 11th, 2021, the Ashland Independent School District Food Service Department wants to provide a few reminders and updates to menus.  As a result of COVID-19, the USDA has lifted several restrictions allowing us to continue implementing the Summer Food Program throughout the rest of the 2020 – 2021 school year.  Below you will find information pertaining to our cafeterias and meal service.  The Food Service Department will:   

  • Follow required meal patterns for the program in place.
  • Follow guidelines as provided by the Kentucky Department of Education, the Kentucky Public Health Organization, and our Local Health Department.
  • Follow Healthy at School Protocol.
  • Install sneeze guards and plastic shields in the serving areas.
  • Enhance sanitation in ALL areas and equipment.
  • Eliminate self-serve stations and share tables.
