Thank you so much for all of your support and well-wishes. Just wanted to share with you our latest accomplishment of becoming the new caterer for Kestrel Heights Charter School. Here is the email announcement sent out to parents last evening:
A message from KESTREL HEIGHTS CHARTER SCHOOL
March 12, 2015
I wanted to let you know that Chicken Hut has informed me and the board of directors that as of March 31, they will no longer be serving as our catering company for our lunch program. As a result we had to make a change to our provider mid-year. After an extensive search I am excited to announce that on Tuesday night, the board of directors, based on my recommendation, approved B Sweet and Savory catering company to serve our students. B Sweet and Savory provided all the necessary documents and met all the specific requirements to obtain the contract. The company will start serving students on April 1, 2015.
B Sweet and Savory will be contracted through the end of the year and at that point we will reevaluate our child nutrition program for the 2015-16 school year. In the meantime, there will not be any significant changes to the program when it comes to how you as a family participate.
The lunches will still cost $3.50 and you will still use the same online system to order lunches. Ms. Hofheinz will continue to support parents with orders, Ms. Maggie Buckholz will still support families with issues pertaining to payments and fiscal concerns, and Ms. Griffin will support parents with Free and Reduce Lunch applications.
We are working internally to make this a smooth transition, but anytime there is a change there maybe a few bumps in the road. It is important that you let our team know if you are having any issues. We will be providing you specific contact information to B Sweet and Savory if you have questions, comments, or concerns about the food or those serving the food.
For ordering purposes the company has provided the menu for the rest of the year and we are in the process of uploading the menu to the online ordering site. However, I have attached a copy of the menu to this email so that you as parents and students can review the lunch options.
We truly believe that this change will be positive for our community and we thank you for your understanding and patience in this transition.
Have a great evening and as always please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
Dr. Mark Tracy
