Phase 2 Meal Information

  • Click here for bus stop times/locations for meals. Note that students/parents must go to their assigned stop to receive their meals.

     When students in grades PreK-3 return to school for Phase 2 hybrid in-person learning beginning Oct. 7-8 (kindergarten) and Oct. 12-13 (grades 1-3) Ritenour will provide meals both at schools and at bus stops throughout the district.

    When PreK-3 students are in the school building they will receive breakfast and lunch each day as they have in the past.  On virtual learning days, meals will be delivered by bus.

    Students in grades 4-12 and those enrolled in Ritenour Virtual Academy (RVA) will continue to receive their meals at the bus stops daily.  

    Buses will run the same routes two times each day beginning at 6:52 a.m.  Students will have two opportunities to come pick up their meals at their assigned bus stop. The earliest route is designed for middle school students; the second route is for high school students and elementary school students. But, families are welcome to pick up their meals at any of the two times.

    All Ritenour staff will wear face coverings and practice social distancing.  Please wear a mask or face covering and follow social distancing, standing 6-feet apart from others at each of the bus stops. Also as a reminder, if anyone in your household is ill with COVID-19 like symptoms, no one in your family should come to the bus stop. To help keep everyone healthy, please contact our child nutrition department directly at (314) 493-6095 to find an alternative way to ensure your children receive their meals. 

    Only enrolled Ritenour students will be eligible to receive the no cost meals.  Child Nutrition staff will be on each bus to hand out meals and record students’ names.  Meals will be delivered for all days that school is in session. 

    Times and a list of locations have been shared with all families currently enrolled in the district via email and/or text message.  All families have been assigned to a stop that is not far from their home.  Please note: families can only receive their meals at their assigned stop.  

    If you have questions about your assigned stop, please contact our transportation department at (314) 493-6327.

    Students/families are encouraged to arrive at the stop at least five minutes before the scheduled time and wait up to ten minutes after the scheduled arrival time in case the bus is running late.
