Hello, CLSD Families, 

As the Food Service Coordinator for the Cornwall-Lebanon School District, I am committed to providing quality meals while still helping to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases throughout the school day. Below you will find some of the detailed changes we have implemented since March to help keep your students and our staff safe. We are committed to decreasing the spread of germs during the school day!

Please be mindful that the key to reopening schools, and to returning student to our cafeterias, is to start slowly. Our menu options have been reduced, but we believe slow and steady wins the race. As the year progresses, we will increase choices and opportunities for your child to enjoy our meals more than ever! If you have any questions, you may ask your school building principal or call me directly at (717) 389-1849. You also may email me for the quickest response at erodriguez@clsd.k12.pa.us.

Sincerely,

Emily Rodriguez, RDN
