Hi Waitsfield Families-
Happy Spring! In an effort to communicate school decisions and items that affect WES we are sharing the information below:
The board will be meeting tonight to discuss the Waitsfield School Kitchen Project. This project was approved by the board in November and went out to bid. One bid was received and it was higher than expected. At this time the board is recommending that the project be put on hold.
For historical information, Waitsfield is the only school in the district without a commercial kitchen. Currently, WES meals are delivered in the back of the personally owned truck of one of the food service staff employees -- as are the dishes and the trays students eat upon. WES has a sink that never passes health inspection. The current enrollment at WES is almost 170 students, resulting in MANY meals being transported and served through an individual's truck; just today over 50 breakfasts and almost 100 lunches were served.
If anyone feels that this project should not be put on hold and is concerned about the hygiene, efficiency and sustainability of our current food service with the facility we have, we ask that you express your opinion to the school board. The board can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
