And if your family is new to SLA, Welcome Aboard! 
"We hope you enjoyed a wonderful summer and are excited as we are about the new school year starting up! "
 
SLA was hard at work over the summer preparing for the new school year, developing new recipes, creating new flavor combinations & finding ways to use more environmentally responsible products, such as our new compostable serving trays and our eco-friendly sanitization supplies. We are ready for the awesome task of feeding all of your students and are dedicated to providing well-balanced meals!

Keep reading to find out more about the exciting things
we have planned this school year!
Starting up the School Year can be a hectic for first-child-in-school families and even the well-seasoned pros! Here are some tips to help get you back in the swing of things.
  • Set up a designated time each week to review your student's schedule for the week ahead with them.
     
  • Try an assignment organizing app, such as iHomework or MyHomeWork.
     
  • Establish a daily "Family Time" when the whole family is together for real facetime! 
     
  • Introduce yourself to your child's teachers and share preferred communication info. Ask how class parents can help them and be involved.
     
  • Take charge of TV & Game time. Find the right time-balance for your family.
     
  • Make sure your students understand the importance of healthy meals. Proper nutrition improves focus and mental stamina.
  • Find out if your family qualifies for any child nutrition programs at school, such as the National School Lunch Program.
     
  • Have a designated "Study Area" free of distractions.
     
  • Touch base with teachers right away if any issues come up with your student, whether academic or social.
     
  • Create a family calendar to keep track of everyone's schedule.
     
  • Set realistic goals and create a rewards system. 
     
  • Take a break! Schedule purposeful downtime in between assignments.
     
  • Get Help! Find a tutor or study coach.
     
  • Get everyone to sleep on time. Don't forget to get enough rest!
