Change in meal pick-up location starting November 5

Due to inclement weather and for the safety of our employees, the pick-up location for meals for virtual learning days has been moved inside.  It will still be at the East Entrance (Door #13) of Eden Prairie High School between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.  Parents/guardians will need to come just inside the first set of doors.  Masks and social distancing are required. 

Please note there is no school on Friday, November 6; the pick up day next week is Thursday, November 5.

Free school breakfast and lunch program extended for all of school year 2020-2021

The USDA has announced a program to provide free school breakfast and lunch for all children. Eden Prairie children up to the age of 18 (and TASSEL students) are eligible to receive no-cost meals both for in-person and virtual learning days.  No income qualification is needed; the program is open for all children. This program was anticipated to end in December of 2020 but has recently been extended for the entire school year of 2020-2021.

For students in the hybrid model in a typical five-day school week, students in group A will bring home the meals on Tuesdays, and students in group B will bring home the meals on Thursdays.  If there are non-school days in the week, the day the meals come home will be the last day of in-person learning for that week.

All other meals (for EP Online as well as for other children) can be picked up at the high school East Entrance (Door #13) on Fridays, between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.  Because some non-school days fall on Fridays, here are the pickup days for the remainder of 2020:  October 2, 8, 14, 23, and 30, November 5, 13, 20 and 25, December 4, 11, 18 and 23.

We understand that it is challenging for some high school students to pick up meals at the end of the school day due to after-school activities such as sports or a job. We offer an option for parents or students to pick up their meals for virtual learning days on Fridays between10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The location is at the East Entrance (Door #13) at EPHS.  Be sure to tell the attendant that you have a hybrid learner.
