Breakfast is served daily in all buildings (except when school is delayed for weather)
Studies show that kids who eat breakfast have higher test scores, superior concentration and better muscle coordination, and they're less likely to miss classes or report to school late. Breakfast eaters also tend to exhibit better classroom behavior and perform better in certain subjects like math. As with lunch, our breakfast menu meets state requirements regarding nutrition with a focus on whole grains, plenty of fruit and milk. Breakfast is $1.00 per student and students that qualify can receive breakfast at a reduced cost or free. We encourage you to take advantage of this convenient and healthy program.

Applications for free and reduced-price meals are available at the main office in all buildings and in the Food Service office at FJSHS. Please complete one application per family and return with your child to school or you may mail it to the Board of Education Office, 1001 Park Avenue, Fostoria, Ohio 44830; attention Holly Reinbolt, Food Service Supervisor. If the application is approved, your child(ren) will begin to receive or continue to receive free or reduced-price meals from the date of approval. A letter will be sent home notifying you of your child's meal status. Applications can be submitted at any time during the school year if your family financial circumstances change. All information submitted to the school is kept confidential. There is no discrimination or identification of free or reduced price paying students. We urge all families to consider filling out an application. Click here for the application.

Students with food allergies that require special dietary needs - substitutions or modifications in school meals will be made for students whose disability restricts their diet in accordance with USDA regulation 7 CFR Part 15b. Please have the evaluation form completed and signed by Physician and Parent. Click here for the required Evaluation Form. No substitutions or modifications will be made until a completed evaluation form is received. This form must be updated each school year.

In order to be compliant with federal regulations from the National School Lunch Program, Fostoria City Schools’ charge policy for student accounts will allow students to charge a maximum amount of two lunches ($5.00). No charges are permitted on ala carte items. Repayment for any charged meals is expected the next school day. Students who have reached their charge limit will be offered an alternate meal that consists of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a milk or juice. Students over the charge limit will not be allowed to purchase ala carte items. Students that do not have funds to pay for their meal and are not able to charge should notify the first food service staff member in line and they will then receive the alternate meal. The purpose of this policy is to ensure consistency and fair practices with Food Service student accounts throughout the district and meeting the federal guidelines mentioned above.

In order to accommodate student accounts, there is an online system for payment on our FCS district website. Click on the Parents/Students tab, and a drop-down will show Total Access (School Dining).  Please click on this and follow the directions listed on the page.  If you do not have a username and password please contact Holly Reinbolt, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or Donna Elchert, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., for assistance.  During the sign-up process, you will be asked if you would like to receive an email notification when the account balance drops below the district-determined amount of $12.50.  This should eliminate the student running out of funds.  However, glitches in the system do occur and this is not a program that is managed by our food service or technology departments.  Please notify us if there is an issue and we will work to provide as much assistance as possible.
We thank you for your support and cooperation in advance.  If you have any questions throughout the year please do not hesitate to contact our Food Service Department at 419-436-4114

* How has technology helped our district over the last year?

With the district being a 1:1 District 5-12 for a couple of years the district had resources available for instruction to continue when we were forced to go remote last spring. In order to cover our younger grades, we handed out devices to families with students PK-4 that did not have at least one device in their home for students to complete work on.

* What technology was most used?

Our students use Chromebooks so the common features such as Google Classroom, Google Meet, and Zoom were prevalent. Our team also shared out numerous resources that were found to be available with free trial editions, etc. over the course of the spring.

* What new technology has the district implemented?

The district expanded our 1:1 program down to grades 3-4 this year

The district applied for the Project 10 million grant with T-Mobile and was able to get hot spots for families that had connectivity issues.

Schools PLP is being used in our district for remote learners, the students that have not returned physically into the classrooms this school year. This is an online curriculum that allows the students to complete courses that they need to continue progressing through their education.

* What have been some of the challenges been?

Structure, structure, structure. It is so important for students to have routines in place in order to stay focused on the completion of tasks. Monitoring progress and communicating can be a challenge when it is not face to face. There is nothing that can replace entirely the day to day of being in a school setting.

* What have been some benefits?

Our curriculum resources come with technology components so when the district moved all students to a remote setting after Thanksgiving and through the holiday season students were able to continue working through the curriculum with their teachers.

Time and learning experiences were pivotal to our success. We noticed a difference in attendance and structure from our first attempt at remote learning in the spring to our remote learning period in the fall. This is a testament to the staff and their efforts to engage with students daily.

* What kinds of technology will the district be adding?

The district is looking at expanding our 1:1 Program in order to include all students in the district.

* How have teachers and students adjusted to the continued use of technology?

They have been committed to learning the various features and doing all they can to have as productive of a learning environment as possible. Our Instructional Technologist, Mat Swortchek and our Director of Curriculum, Tera Matz have been instrumental in making sure that software was ready to go and that tutorials, tip sheets, etc. have been prepared and shared.
