Hello, CLSD Families, 

As Supervisor of Food and Nutrition Services 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 the most up-to-date information detailing our current safety protocols.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Cornwall-Lebanon School District Food Service Department has enhanced its safety measures daily. As we start the 2021-2022 school year, Food Service has updated the procedures you will see outlined below. 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.
