Dear Island Park Families,
We have received notification that pursuant to the authority in Section 2202(a) of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the FFCRA) (PL 116-127), as extended by the Continuing Appropriations Act 2021 and Other Extensions Act (PL 116-159), and based on the exceptional circumstances of this public health emergency, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is establishing a waiver to allow the National School Lunch Program Seamless Summer Option (SSO) to operate when school is open during the regular school year, through June 30, 2022. This waiver is expected to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to the novel coronavirus (COVID–19). As a result, all Island Park students will be eligible for breakfast and lunch, at no cost, through June 30, 2022.

To Our Valued Customers,
Rich’s Ice Cream Company has developed systems for the management of allergenic materials minimizing the risk of allergen contamination. Our allergen program is based on best industry practices which include a robust sanitation program and strict adherence to cGMP’s (Current Good Manufacturing Practices).
We, at Rich’s Ice Cream, want to help protect your family the same way we do ours. We understand the high level of concern of protecting those who have nut allergies. This is why, that in 2016, we made the decision to become a “Nut Free” facility. We do our diligence from top to bottom… from our suppliers who make our ingredients, our vending machines and employee lunches to ensure we are 100% nut free. We have the strictest policies to protect our consumers.
We at Rich’s Ice Cream are dedicated to safe quality products and feel confident that our allergen programs represent best industry practices.
Yours for Quality and Safety,
