Beginning of the 2022-2023 School Year

Dear Charleroi Learning Community,

Together, we have successfully navigated the last two years of Covid-19 challenges. You have successfully helped us bridge the gap between remote and regular classroom learning by leveraging technology to stay connected to our students. Ironically, this challenge has helped us build stronger relationships and partnerships so that education and collaboration continues to evolve in our district. If we’ve learned anything from this pandemic, it’s been to adjust and adapt, and you were committed to doing just that.

I look forward to the excitement of the new 2022-2023 school year, and I thank you for your dedication to the Charleroi Area School District, our community, and the students and families that we serve. Our 1st day of school for students will be on Thursday, August 25, 2022.

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention adjusted its COVID-19 guidance. Accordingly, after consulting with our Health and Safety Team, we have updated our Health and Safety plan to reflect the new changes.

Attached you will find district curriculum, security/safety and student support systems and Health/Safety Plan documents that will continue to help our district move forward.

22-23 Meal Applications

Dear Parents,
For the past two years, the USDA has offered waivers to Child Nutrition Programs across the
United States. This program provided students with breakfast and lunch at no cost. Unfortunately, these
waivers expired on June 30, 2022.

Starting this 2022-2023 school year, Child Nutrition programs across the nation will return to pre-
pandemic operations. All families are once again asked to complete and submit a Free/Reduced
Meal Application regardless of income. The more applications completed, the better the school can
feed all students.


In the past, the first 30 days of the school year used the status from the previous year if no new
application was received. Since very few meal applications have been submitted over the past two years,
here is what you can do to ensure your children are ready to start the new school year:

If you have difficulties completing it, please watch this Video:

All applications will be completed digitally through the School Café program. This is also the
same place you can add funds to your child’s lunch account, watch what they eat, pay for Chromebook
Insurance, and make multiple other types of payments to the district.

If you cannot access this through your personal cell phone, computer, or tablet, please make an
appointment at the Charleroi Administration Office to complete it on a provided computer. Appointments
can be made by calling Mrs. Danelle Patterson at (724) 483-3509 ext 1223

We’re committed to working tirelessly to provide high-quality, nutritious, healthy, and well-
balanced meals to all students. You and your child/children’s well-being has always been our highest
priority, and we’re committed to helping make this transition back to everyday operations as seamless as

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.
