Food Service Update - Free Meals
GREAT NEWS!!! All breakfasts and lunches will be FREE until the end of December 2020, per the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
All children in the Clare community ages 18 and under (regardless of income). Families are asked to still complete the free/reduced meal application and/or household survey for the 2020-21 school year.
How do I receive these meals?
Face-to-Face Students: Your account will not be charged for the breakfast/lunch you receive each day at school. Every Friday, you will be sent home with meals for the weekend.
Virtual Students and Community Members ages 18 and under:
Virtual students/community members 18 and under can pick up meals for all 7 days on Mondays from 3:30pm-5pm in the bus loop.
When does this begin?
Weekend meals for face-to-face students will be distributed starting September 11, 2020

Pick-up for community members will begin September 14, 2020
What if my student purchased breakfast or lunch the first week of school before this announcement?

Email Contact Updates
Parents of CPS students: We are collecting email contact information for parents, in an effort to quickly update our information systems and get important updates to you in a timely manner. The form allows for 3 student names - if you have more than 3 children in school, please submit the form again so that we connect your email contact with all your children. Thanks for all that you do for Clare Public Schools.
September 2020 Board Meeting
Public participation in meeting will be held electronically unless a subsequent Executive Order allows for larger in person gatherings.
AGENDA WILL BE POSTED SOON
Mr. Lowe has worked tirelessly this summer to plan for music/band this fall at Clare Public Schools. Amid all the concerns, he facilitated a very successful Band Camp in early August following all the required protocols. Kids and parents alike expressed their gratitude and excitement for the opportunity for our young people, and Mr. Lowe continues to plan for the year ahead.
Ask Mr. Lowe about it all, and he's likely to defer credit to kids, parents, and his family...all worthy of praise! But he brings it all together. We look forward to some fall performances of the marching band, and we hold out hope for concert band performances too. But whatever's ahead, having Mr. Lowe on our team means we're in good hands.
Thanks Mr. Lowe, for making Clare a great place to live and learn!
