School Meal Program Update

For our families who have children enrolled in either our in-school or remote education programs:

I am pleased to be able to share that the New Hyde Park – Garden City Park UFSD received permission from the State to resume offering free lunch to all enrolled students under the National School Lunch Program, similar to what we offered last year. Additionally, free breakfast will be available as well.

We have been told that these meals will be free until the end of the 2020-2021 school year or until the State runs out of funding to continue the program (whichever comes first).

Since it is entirely possible that the State will run out of funding prior to the end of the school year, it is strongly recommended that those families who qualify for Free or Reduced Price Meals, fill out the forms that are on the district’s website just to be safe. In order to determine if you are eligible for this benefit please click on the following hyperlink to visit the district’s webpage for meal services and review the “2020-2021 Income Eligibility Guidelines” - Click Here. If you believe you are eligible then please fill out the “2020-2021 Application for Free and Reduced Priced Meals” and submit to the main office of your child’s school as soon as possible - Click Here. Please refer to the guidelines and complete all required information when completing the application. Incomplete applications will not be approved.

Additional good news…the State has also permitted the District to retroactively offer the free meal program back to the start of the 2020-2021 school year. That means, for all those who paid for their meals, reimbursement checks will be issued. This will take some time to happen since the District must be reimbursed from the state first. As soon as the funding is received, payments will be processed and checks will be mailed out.

Meals for students receiving in-school learning –

Meals will continue to be available on school days. Individual servings of cereal will be available for breakfast and there will be alternating hot and cold meals available for lunch. The menus will be posted on the district’s website.

Meals for students receiving remote learning –

Weekly pick up of meals will continue to be available. On Monday mornings parents will be able to pick up their child’s meals at the child’s home school between 8:00 am and 8:30 am. At that time a parent will be allowed to obtain up to 5 cereal breakfasts and up to 5 frozen lunches (one breakfast and one lunch for each day that school is in session that week). In any week where school is closed on Monday, the pickup of meals will resume on the next day that school is in session between 8:00 am and 8:30 am. The menu will be posted on the district’s website. A reminder will be provided to the families from the school’s principal. It is recommended that each parent bring a carrying bag that can accommodate the number of meals being obtained. Prior to the onset of the school year, you were provided a code that is unique to your child. That code must be provided by you, along with your child’s full name, to the staff member who provides you the meals at the pick-up location. If for any reason you were not provided the code prior to the onset of the school year or have misplaced it, please call the school’s main office to obtain the information. We look forward to serving you and are hopeful that you take advantage of this program.

The tables will continue to be set up at the following location:
Road School: Cafeteria entrance on Park Ave.

Please make certain that you continue to practice social distancing and follow all CDC recommendations when picking up lunches (i.e. wearing face masks).

Road School Sixth Graders Named Winners in National Competition

6th Grade Winners Stand In Front Of Building thumbnail184725

New Hyde Park Road School sixth graders Aaron George, Kingston Hui, Ava Iskhakov, Adittya Nischal and Shaurya Patel won second place in the inaugural ASA Solve Together contest.

The team, named the Futuristic Illusionists, developed and submitted a fully interactive website, a game and video to demonstrate solutions to addressing the challenges of building a colony and sustaining human life on Mars. Under the guidance of their teacher Jennifer Coaker, the students worked diligently since January 2021, often collaborating together on Google Meet after school hours and during winter and spring breaks. The team addressed real-life challenges of radiation exposure, toxic soil and cold temperatures.

The Futuristic Illusionists were selected from 189 total submissions from 23 schools across 12 states. The submissions were reviewed by a panel of judges that included representatives from the Association for Middle Level Educators and ASA.

For the students’ winning concept, the school was awarded $5,000 and the team of students won $1,000, a trophy and a banner.

New Hyde Park Road School fifth graders, as well as students in Mrs. Hazelton’s class, virtually visited the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn Harbor on April 8, April 13 and April 15. Organized by art teacher Sharon Rebecchi, the virtual field trips were held on Google Meet.

The museum’s manager of school programs Rebecca Hirschwerk led the program. She began the virtual field trip by sharing an exterior photo of the museum and discussing how it used to serve as a mansion for the Frick family. Then, the students examined works of art made by women in the exhibit, “Heroines of Abstract Expressionism and FEM.”

Hirschwerk asked the students to share what they were seeing, feeling and thinking when looking at the various artwork.

Sixth Graders Participate in ASA Solve Together

New Hyde Park Road School sixth graders in Jennifer Coaker’s class and Michael Onorato’s class recently submitted their finished projects to the ASA Solve Together contest.

ASA Solve Together is a competition that challenges students to create innovative solutions to real-world problems. They worked together to find a solution to their identified problem using the ASA contest platform to communicate, collaborate, think critically and be creative. The contest also aims to inspire career exploration and 21st century skill development.

The team from Ms. Coaker’s class chose to solve the ASA-provided challenge of “Building a Colony on Mars.” The team members are Aaron George, Kingston Hui, Ava Iskhakov, Adittya Nischal and Shaurya Patel. The team from Mr. Onorato’s class tackled the ASA-provided challenge, “Acting on Climate Change,” and included students Ryan Delmar, Paige Dvoroznak, Aditi Parikh, Axl Su and Antonio Tsigos.

Ms. Coaker’s team worked tirelessly on the challenge since January 2021, often collaborating together on Google Meet after school hours and during winter and spring breaks. Their finished concept was a successful, multibillion dollar colony on Mars. They created a fully interactive website that displayed facts about the planet and their imagined spacecraft that would transport passengers, as well as fleshed out plans and solutions for heat and electricity, water, oxygen, food and more. Some of the problems they faced included radiation exposure, toxic soil and cold temperatures. The team also came up with 10 rules and laws for their colonists to abide by for safety. Additionally, team member Nischal utilized the game Roblox to create a 3D model layout of their colony. The video walkthrough was shared on the team’s Google Slide presentation, which was submitted to ASA.

On April 13 through Google Meet, they virtually shared their presentation with their classmates, their families, Principal Kim LaRegina and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jennifer Morrison.

Mr. Onorato's team utilized their critical thinking skills and knowledge of STEM-related subject matter to analyze and inform the public about the current and future impact of climate change. The team demonstrated leadership and collaborated throughout the research, creation and submission process of their project. Their research resulted in suggestions and solutions that were impressive and applicable to the real-world.

For participating in the competition, the team has the opportunity to win up to $20,000 in grants and prizes. ASA Solve Together will announce the winners on April 25.
