CPS launches new lunch program

CLAREMORE — Claremore Public Schools announced Monday the launch of the My Nutri Kids program during the school board meeting. The program is designed to help parents access student lunch account information, deposit lunch money and view what their child is purchasing at school.

To access the program, parents can visit the Claremore Public Schools website at or My Nutri Kids directly at

The first step in accessing the account will require parents to contact their child’s school to get the student’s identification number. After getting each student’s ID number, parents can visit the website and register their account.

My Nutri Kids features interactive menus, payment information and parents can even see in real time when and what their child is eating.

In addition, board members voted to approve approximately $30,000 in special education therapy services for Pre-K students that have transferred into the district from other schools.

These funds will be used during the entire 2011-12 school year and services are offered as part of a CO-OP with surrounding school districts. The board approved two out of state field trips, funding for the Junior Achievement program for district 5th grade students and an upcoming fundraiser for the high school video editing class.

School officials presented a proposed policy change regarding employee extended leave of absence. The change would limit approved absences to infant childcare, personal illness, caring for sick members of the immediate family and further study.

The proposed changes include the deadline for submitting requests and requests will no longer be granted to employees who are seeking other employment or exploring business opportunities.

“Leaves of absence for reasons other than those listed above may be recommended by the superintendent to the Board of Education when in judgment of the superintendent such leave would be in the best interest of the school system and/or the teacher. This will include employees in military reserve/guard units being deployed,” according to proposed policy documents.

The board will consider the changes during the next 30 days and will vote to approve or deny them during the Oct. 10 meeting.
