Whether your student will be attending a school site, or the Kenowa Hills Online Learning Academy (KHOLA), they will have access to a FREE breakfast and lunch each day we are in session.

As all students return to daily in-person instruction, we return to our regularly scheduled menus.
We will also continue to offer a Take-Home Meal Kit to all daily in-person students. These kits will contain 1 breakfast and 1 lunch, and will be offered on Friday’s. We will begin offering these 1-day meal kits on Friday, January 22nd.

What will the free breakfast and lunch meals contain?
Should I still complete a Free and Reduced Meal Benefits Application?
I have already deposited money into my students account. Now what?
Free meals for all students is currently scheduled through December 31st, but that could change. Any money deposited into your students account will remain in their account, and will be available should anything change.
Will you be offering A la Carte items for purchase?
Not at this time. We would like to spend some time adjusting to our new meal service models and then look at how we can best accommodate a la carte purchases.

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
