HCSD appreciates the many questions regarding school lunchroom procedures and we will be providing further clarification in our July 13 update.
Students that have specific food allergies and have a prepared lunch from home will be permitted to bring lunch to school. The outside lunch language is regarding ordering from a local fast-food establishment, a volunteer brings in a birthday cake for a class, etc..
Additionally, all students in Hamilton City Schools will receive a free lunch starting in the fall of 2020.
It is obvious that HCSD will need to clarify what 'outside lunch' means in our July 13 correspondence to parents.
Thank you for reaching out.
