ALL SCS Students to Receive FREE Meals for 2020-2021 School Year


Sidney City Schools is pleased to share that the Ohio Department of Education has approved the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) extension for food services. This means all students at Sidney City Schools will receive free breakfast and lunch meals for the entire 2020-2021 school year. 

All students will receive a free regular breakfast and/or lunch. Any additional items, like ala carte items, extra meal items, or extra milk will have to be paid for by the student. 


Any student (in-person or remote) who may qualify for free or reduced meals should still complete the Free/Reduced Meal application at or get a paper copy from their child’s school. The Free/Reduced Meal application is what is used to determine school fee waivers. 


Remote Learning students are also eligible for free meals. The process for this will be as follows:

  • Remote Learning students wanting school meals must get them from the building at which they would attend.
  • Remote Learning students must follow all school guidelines while in the buildings (masks, social distancing, etc).
  • Remote Learning students will get the options of meals we are offering that day. 
  • Any extra food or drink items must be purchased. Students are not permitted to charge extra food items. 
  • All to-go items must be in a container for transport. 
  • Once Remote Learning students get their meals they will immediately exit the buildings.
  • Remote Learning students will not be able to get both breakfast and lunch at the same time - each school will have separate pick up times for each meal as follows:
    • Emerson
      • Breakfast 8:40am to 8:50am
      • Lunch 10:45am to 10:55am
