INTRODUCING NUTRISLICE: NEW INTERACTIVE BREAKFAST & LUNCH MENUS:
NutriSlice is an innovative method for parents and students to view information about what is on our school menu for breakfast and lunch each day. You can see an image and description for food items, as well as nutrition and allergen information. For those students with allergies, you are able to select the food you are allergic to and it will cross out any items on the menu that contain that allergen. Menu changes are updated in real time, so when there’s a snow day you won’t have any questions about what is being served the following school day. Please be sure to check the menus frequently for the most accurate and up to date information.
There’s also the option to rate individual food items, so please help us continue to improve by providing feedback. Our innovative, interactive site and FREE mobile app make our school menus more convenient and informative than ever before. Visit your school’s homepage, the Food Service page, or click here http://hssdwi.nutrislice.com/ to check out the menu and all of the great features!

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL HOMELESS AWARENESS MONTH:
The number of homeless children in the Howard-Suamico School District is on the rise as well as the numbers across the state. Michelle Dahlke, HSSD Homeless Coordinator and The Giving Tree, are doing a fundraiser by selling t-shirts for all staff, students, and families to purchase and wear every Wednesday in November. All proceeds from the t-shirts will go directly to helping all the homeless kids we have identified in the Howard-Suamico School District, which has doubled from last school year. Our goal is to make sure all the kids identified as homeless will not have any barriers to learning/extracurricular activities, so supplying them with clothes, school supplies, food, hygiene items, athletic fees, etc. is very important. CLICK HERE to order a shirt. Thank you for your support in helping our own students.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Michelle Dahlke at 920-662-7260 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
