Challenges in district’s central kitchen lead to much-needed upgrades. Our district’s central kitchen, located downstairs in the administration building, has faced some major challenges this year. Over the course of the past few weeks the kitchen’s walk-in oven, large mixer, two double-stack steamers and convection oven, which are all more than 30 years old, have stopped working. That has made it a constant challenge to get hot meals out to our more than 3,500 students. But the failure has also led to a much-needed upgrade. Starting on Monday, Oct. 24, the central kitchen will be closed as new kitchen equipment is installed. The closure is currently scheduled to last through Wednesday, Oct. 26, but could take longer. The kitchen closure has led to menu changes. While the central kitchen is closed students at the district's three elementary schools and Compass High School will receive cold lunches, which will be prepared on-site in the various school kitchens. You can see the menu changes by clicking here. We want to thank you for being patient with us as we work to ensure our central kitchen is able to continue serving our students for years to come.
