Community Workday October 12

The Thunder Ridge students have set a date! Monday, October 12, from 8:15am to 3:30pm will be the community clean-up and work day. Please let them know if you need assistance with a project. This day is about giving back to the community and the students work hard to accomplish great things. Please call 785-476-2217 or 785-476-6037 with any projects you may have.

Thunder Ridge USD #110 Parents and Guardians,

Thanks to the combined efforts of USDA and KSDE, the Community Eligibility flexibility waiver which allowed all districts to provide free meals for students during the spring has been extended to December 31, 2020 or until funds are depleted, whichever comes first. 

What does this mean to Thunder Ridge students

Beginning September 9, 2020 all enrolled students will be eligible for FREE breakfast and FREE lunch regardless of their lunch status. This does not include extra entrees or extra milk. 

On a related note - It is extremely important that you complete a Free and Reduced Meal Application if you have not done so already. Financial limits have been increased this year making it easier for more to qualify. Meal applications and lunch status of our students also has an impact on our state funding (we receive added funding). Keep in mind that the free meals program for all students is only temporary. As we begin 2021, meal pricing will again be based on student lunch status. Please take the time to complete an application as soon as possible. 

Feel free to call Ginny Dunlap for further information at 785-476-3241 or email at .
