Norton
From the Norton Public Schools Website: 

Norton Public Schools will be starting the year with free breakfast and free lunch for all students. The USDA has approved a waiver request from the State to allow for free meals through the end of December 2020 or as long as the funding lasts. We are pleased that this benefit is available to all students in the District, and encourage students to participate. 

The Norton Public Schools has created a school meals order form for families to place their breakfast and lunch orders for each week during the upcoming school year. This order form replaces lunch lines and student ordering during the school day. Families will complete one order form per week for each student. 

Food delivery to bus stops will begin on Monday September 21, 2020. The order form for next week will be made available at 4:00 pm on Thursday September 17, 2020 with a completion due date and time of noon on Friday September 18, 2020. 

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Matt Wells at (508)285-0100 ext. 4 and then option 1 or through email at mwells@norton.k12.ma.us.
