Shepherd Glen Elementary School
As you know, all Hamden Public Schools are closed due to the Coronavirus. Although essential staff may be in our buildings, our schools and central office are currently closed to the public.
Related to school meals, breakfast and lunch are available Monday - Friday, from 9:00-12:00 each morning at Hamden High, Hamden Middle and Church Street Schools. Any child 18 years and younger is eligible for these meals, which can be picked up by students or parents/guardians.
We have created a page to provide Hamden Public Schools updates during the Coronavirus pandemic. Please regularly check www.Hamden.org/Coronavirus for current information affecting the Hamden Public Schools community.
On Thursday April 9th, Whitson's School Nutrition and Hamden Public Schools will be providing families with four days worth of breakfast and lunch meals.This is because there will be no meal service on April 10th, Good Friday.
Bagged meals for the 4 days will be separated in our eco-friendly plastic grocery bags (one bag for breakfast items, one for lunch items). As our normal custom has been, families may requests as many meals as they have children under the age of 18 in their household.
We will resume normal service beginning Monday, April 13th. Even though it's Spring break, food service will continue throughout the week.
Chicken nuggets, pizza, mac and cheese... how does that sound? Starting April 1, Hamden is pleased to add heat-at-home foods to our take-away meal program. Our breakfast and lunch program will include new fully-cooked food options that can be heated at home. Sandwiches are yummy - but variety is the spice of life!
Fresh fruit and veggies are also included in the food options available.
The take-away meals are available at our five food distribution locations: Church Street School, Ridge Hill School, Hamden Middle School, Hamden High School, and the Keefe Center. Meals are available Monday-Friday, from 9:00-12:00 for any child 18 years of age or younger.
Here's a copy of the upcoming menu. Help us spread the word - we want to keep our kids happy and healthy!
