    If student may enter building “regardless of enrollment or home of record”, this raises several questions.
    1. Bullying- anonymity is a powerful intoxicant. Are I.D.’s checked at the door? At what age are children to be accompanied by an adult? If so how many children may an 18 be in charge of, 1, 5,13?
    2. May a 16 eat at an elementary school cafeteria?
    3. If no I.D. Is required, do students enrolled, unable to leave have priority, are they guaranteed a meal?
    4. What advertising to the disabled community to inform them of this benefit?
    5. If no I.D. Is required, how do you know who is under 18? Are you giving adults access to children?

      Thank you for your questions regarding the Urbana School District #116’s participation in the USDA Seamless Summer Food Program. We implement and advertise this program, as directed by the federal government to provide breakfast and lunch to ALL children under the age of 18. We have not had any reason in the past to suspect those over the age of 18 were trying to participate and in fact, most of the children who do partake at our locations are elementary age. While our summer school and summer programs are going on at the Urbana schools that participate in the Summer Food Program, we do have separate times for those students and the public to eat. There is adult supervision during all the times we are serving meals, whether for our students or the public. While we have never run out of food for our students or the public, we do have food service staff on site to prepare more if needed.

      We do hope that this answers any questions you may have regarding USD #116’s participation in the great program. We are happy to provide meals at no cost to children in our community during the summer months.

    If kids don’t have school I.D.s would this not be a good time to issue them so the could ilse the library in the summer?

      If your student does not have his or her school ID, you can contact their school’s office to get a replacement. If your student is looking to use the Urbana Free Library this summer, you will need to contact the Library to get a library card. More information on obtaining a library card can be found on their web site here: https://urbanafreelibrary.org
