KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — Spring Hill High School will begin the school year with limited meal options as the building experiences a nutrition services staffing shortage.

A district spokesperson told KSHB 41 the situation at the high school is temporary as the school works to “secure additional staff and consider creative alternatives to return to standard meal service."

Families were notified earlier in the week of the changes such as no or “very few” hot items along will all meals coming pre-packaged, grab-and-go style.

Other adjustments include:

  • One lunch entree, seven are offered under standard service
  • One breakfast entree, six are offered under standard service
  • No garden bar
  • No ala carte items at breakfast or lunch
  • Two cashier lines, three lines are available under standard service
  • Students much select a fully reimbursable meal

The high school is the only school within the district experiencing such changes, according to the district spokesperson.
