SUMMER FOOD SERVICE AVAILABLE Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, The New Lisbon School District announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well. The following locations will be serving the free meals this summer: School District of New Lisbon-Multi-Purpose Room: June 7-June 25, 2021 Time: 10:45-11:30 July 26- August 6, 2021 Time: 11:00-11:30 Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service. “This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Mark Toelle,
Tonight's softball game at Brookwood has been postponed to Wednesday, June 2. Please plan accordingly.

A GRADUATION PARADE will follow at 11:30 a.m. The parade route will be similar to last year except we will be going down Pearl Street instead of Bridge Street due to construction. Then down Adams Street back to the school. We will provide a map of the parade as soon as it is made available. (Hopefully tomorrow 😎) WILL THIS EVENT BE ON FACEBOOK LIVE? As of today, we will not being doing the ceremony live because we want to make sure we can provide the highest quality recording of the event that is possible. ARE YOU RECORDING THE SPEECHES? Yes, we will be recording speeches and taking high quality professional photography candids. HOW CAN I SEE COPIES OF THE PHOTOS? All the videos and photos will be shared with you right here sometime Saturday afternoon after everything is edited. This takes time so please be patient. WILL THE PARADE BE LIVE? We will do our best to go LIVE for the parade as sound quality isn't as important. Tune in right here. 😎 WHAT ABOUT PARKING? We encourage you to park in our school parking lot and take the path over to the field. DO WE HAVE TO WEAR MASKS? Masks are encouraged. IS THERE A LIMIT TO HOW MANY ARE ALLOWED TO ATTEND? Graduates were given a limited number of tickets in the grand stand area. There will be unlimited seating on the field. WHAT IF IT RAINS? Then we will thank Mother Nature for the moisture and move everything into the gym. 😍 We can't wait to welcome Linda back home. Congratulations to the Class of 2021. P.S.
