School District 25 to continue hybrid-learning model for trimester

Pocatello/Chubbuck School District's administration building in Pocatello

The Pocatello/Chubbuck School District has been approved for a USDA waiver allowing all students in SD25 to get free breakfast and lunch.

The goal of the waiver is to limit contact in the cafeterias and to streamline mealtimes.

The waiver will be in effect until Dec. 31, 2020 or until the funding runs out.

After it ends, families will return to their previous 2020-2021 eligibility.

According to the school district, secondary schools will continue to offer a la carte items on a limited basis. Those items are not free and are the responsibility of the parent/guardian.  

The waiver covers any full meal charges from Sept. 1, 2020 on. Any meal charges from Sept. 1 to current day will be refunded to the student’s school lunch account. Any money already paid into a student’s lunch account will remain there and will be available for use when the waiver ends.
