SPECIAL NEWS ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
I would like to explain our position and clarify some thoughts that are circulating throughout the Newcomerstown community. Our cafeteria program has operated in a deficit for an extended time. The General fund of the Newcomerstown School District has been covering these losses.The cafeteria fund needs to be self sustaining as a self-funded program. As a result the district is trying to correct this situation to make the cafeteria self-sufficient. The Board of Education is carefully reviewing multiple options to make the best decision for the students, staff, community, and the finances of the district. NONE of the options include serving pre-packaged meals to the students or eliminating our entire cafeteria staff.
Please as you read social media or hear a conversation in the public about the cafeteria understand that there has been no decision made at this time. We are doing our due diligence with taxpayer money to make the cafeteria financially independent again and continue to serve a quality meal for our children.
Please call if you have any questions about the cafeteria or have heard a rumor that doesn't sound like it makes sense and you desire or need clarification. 740-498-8373
