Increased Meals at White Swan High School – By popular demand and in an effort to provide our students as much nourishment as possible within the USDA guidance lines of the Child Nutrition Program, White Swan High School will begin serving leftover food that is not able to be saved and served in future meals - Effective immediately.   However, it is important for everyone to remember the following:

-  Students must be respectful of the cook staff and accept their decision on whether to serve leftovers or not and the portion sizes.  The cook's decision is final.

-  Leftovers are for students only.  Staff are still required to purchase breakfast and lunch tickets in advance through the building offices for any food from the cafeterias.

-  Leftovers will only be offered after ALL students have been served their first meal.

-  Leftovers will be offered as fairly and equitably as possible, with reasonable portion sizes, on a first come first serve basis and only after the cooks have determined all students have been served one meal.

-  Cooks will prepare a percentage more than necessary to provide more leftovers.
