Lewis Central Middle School Bulletin for Friday, October 23, 2020
If you are playing in a sport or in show choir, you will need to have a current physical on file in the office. Physicals are good for one year from the date of they physical. The state does allow you a 30 day grace. You will also need the last page of the activities handbook turned in. It requires the parent/ guardian to sign in two places and the student to sign in two places. I've attached links to both the physical as well as the activities handbook below. **Covid physical extension: The state has extended the grace period this year due to covid. If you had your physical 7/1/19 or thereafter, your grace period is extended through 12/31/20. physical:Your text to link... activity handbook: Your text to link...

*Admittance into sporting events during covid*
The various state activity boards have required schools to limit the number of people in attendance at events. The following outlines the new guidelines we will be following at our sporting events: All students, staff and spectators are required to wear a protective face covering for admission to any Lewis Central event - indoor and outdoor. All students, staff and spectators are expected to social distance as much as possible at all times. Home spectators will be limited on a per student ticket basis in most activities. The number of tickets allowed per student will be dependent upon the activity, event location and facility. Visiting spectators will be limited to a number determined by the facility/event and the needs for social distancing. Lewis Central administration will provide tickets to opposing schools, and the opposing administration will determine how tickets are distributed. All spectators will be required to show a school issued pass/ticket in order to pay admission at the gate.
Free meals for all LC students 9/14-12/22
As of Monday, September 14, 2020, the breakfast and lunch programs at Lewis Central will be free to all Lewis Central students. The District is able to serve the meals free of charge through a USDA program. This free meal program will be free until December 22nd or until USDA funding is exhausted. The District will send out a communication if the program ends before December 22nd. * A few things to note Only standard meal trays are eligible for Free Priced Meals. Any side dishes, milk only, A la carte items and additional main dishes are full priced. Entries for breakfast and lunch will not be tracked on your student’s account. Only additional purchases will be tracked on your student’s account. After funding has been exhausted or when classes resume on January 4, 2021, students will be charged as they were prior to the free meal program. If you qualify for free or reduced meals and have not completed your application for the 2020-2021 school year, please complete it, so your student is eligible after the free program has ended. Remote students are able to participate in this program as well. Additional information can be found here.
