Streetsboro City Schools are currently operating SSO (Seamless Summer Option) which was originally intended as an reimbursable meal program for schools and child care facilities to feed all children 18 and under at no cost.

Schools switched over to this from the NSLP (see below) after the shutdown in March of 2020 due to the national COVID-19 pandemic. This is open to all school districts for the remainder of the 2021 / 2022 school year.

In order for meals to qualify as free they must meet certain criteria.

Currently, SSO is extended through Summer 2022, and all students at Streetsboro City Schools are eligible for no-cost breakfast and lunch options on all school days.

There are some component specific guidelines as to what makes up a breakfast and lunch, and it is important to keep in mind to follow those guidelines and regulations.

BREAKFAST

A breakfast meal at Streetsboro consists of a choice of milk, grains, and fruit. A student must take 3 out of 4 components, and one component must be a fruit.

  • For example, a student could pick milk, a granola bar, crackers, and an apple. Or, a milk, skip the cereal bar, and take the orange and crackers.
  • Any single component only must be purchased.

LUNCH

A lunch meal at Streetsboro consists of a choice of milk, protein, grain, vegetable, and fruit.

  • A student must take 3 out of 5 components. The lunch meal requires the student to pick either a fruit or vegetable.
  • Any single component only must be purchased.
  • For example, a student could pick a milk, burger, fries, and an apple. Or, pick a milk, salad, and a fruit.
