Briefly noted: New full-lunch-for-all policy goes into effect today in Shawnee Mission; Kansas City Christian, Bishop Miege soccer teams headed to state

Shawnee Mission is considering allowing students to get full lunch meals even after they’ve gone over the limit on their accounts.

New guaranteed full lunch policy goes into effect in Shawnee Mission today. The Shawnee Mission School District’s new policy that guarantees a full lunch for all students regardless of the balance in their school meal accounts goes into effect today. The move comes after the board approved shifting away from the previous practice, which gave students who didn’t have enough funds a toasted cheese sandwich and a milk instead of a full meal. You can find more information about the policy — and how the district will be working to collect unpaid balances at the end of the year – here.
