BREAKFAST MENU FOR WEEK OF JAN 11 – 15
Each morning all In-person learners are able to enjoy a free breakfast at school. No need to pre-order. Students can simply grab a bag on their way into school each day beginning at 8:20 am. This program replaces the free snacks previously supplied. Below is the menu for next week:
Each morning, every student is offered a bagged breakfast. We have the items on display for the kids to see and make a choice to take it or not. When students arrive at their classroom by 8:40, they may choose to eat breakfast then or save it for a morning snack. When students arrive at their classroom after 8:35, they may be asked to eat breakfast as a snack when their class has a scheduled morning break.

INCLEMENT WEATHER DAYS
As we do each year, for any inclement weather delays or full day cancellations, we will follow the lead of Zeeland Public Schools. We will notify our families through our Innocademy Facebook page as well as email.
As a reminder, should there be a 2 hour delay, we will begin school at 10:45am, instead of 8:45am. Dismissal will remain at 3:30pm for that day.
Also, we are not planning to flip to remote learning during one-day delays or cancellations. Should there be an extended weather event over the course of several days, and we have the opportunity to prepare for it, we will be in communication with you should we make the decision to transition to remote learning at that point.
COVID POSITIVE DIAGNOSIS?
In the event your child receives a positive COVID diagnosis, please make sure to contact us, immediately. We must continue to update the COVID transparency page on our website and be able to work with the health department in their contact tracing efforts.
