School-Related Programs

School Nutrition Program (SNP)

Breakfast and Lunch will be served at all schools as was done pre-pandemic. For 2021-22, all meals will be available to students at no charge. A la carte items (aka extras or snacks) will also be available for purchase. Charging for a la carte items is not permitted. Parents may add funds to their student’s account easily at K12 Payment Center. We also accept cash, checks, or money orders. 

SNP is currently accepting and processing applications for Free & Reduced-Price Meals. Online applications are the quickest way to apply but paper forms are also available and can be found on our website.  Although this form is not needed in order to receive a free meal this school year, there are many benefits if you are eligible, including P-EBT funds for Summer 2021. If your child is enrolled at a Community Eligibility School (CEP), applying is not necessary. CEP schools for 2021-22 include Wolf Meadow, W.M. Irvin, Royal Oaks, Concord Middle, and Opportunity School.

Menus are posted on the SNP website, along with a variety of other information families may need. 

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program grant has been awarded to the following Elementary schools for this school year: A.T. Allen, Beverly Hills, Royal Oaks, Rocky River, Winecoff, W.M. Irvin, and Wolf Meadow.

For additional information, please contact your school’s cafeteria manager.

 

Buildings

Cabarrus County Schools seeks to maintain healthy school and work environments and will continue to conduct routine maintenance on our HVAC systems with special emphasis placed on replacing air filters, cleaning ducts and ensuring proper exhaust fan operation. Our Facilities and Maintenance teams also will revise HVAC system run-time schedules, which will better control humidity levels in our schools and modify temperatures in unoccupied spaces.

The district also has also moved forward with the installation of additional modular needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI™) systems to safely clean indoor air in school buildings with limited outside air flow capabilities.

 

KIDS:PLUS

The KIDS:PLUS Program will operate our before and after care programs for the 21-22 school year. We will continue following all of our usual licensing requirements in addition to the guidance from NCDHHS. We will continue to collaborate with school-based staff to prioritize the health and safety of our staff and students/families in our care. In alignment with CCS and in compliance with the NCDHHS recommendations, face coverings will be optional. We will continue to follow other procedures, such as adherence to physical distancing, health screening, and enhanced cleaning. Spaces are limited. Please see the KIDS:PLUS website for more information.
