A Message from the Foodservice Director: Menu Changes & Supply Chain Disruptions I hear you and I share your frustrations regarding menu changes. Unfortunately, the changes are not due to my own decision, but rather an inability to obtain the product that is originally on the menu. We are experiencing extreme supply chain disruptions, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to get the items needed to follow the menu. I notify principals of any menu changes as soon as I am aware of them; please check weekly communications from your building for the most up to date information regarding the menu. I wish I could say it's going to get better soon, but from everything I have been hearing and everything I have been experiencing, it may even get worse before it gets better. A few manufacturers just announced that they are suspending production of entire product lines until January 2022. I appreciate your understanding as I work through these challenges. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at burrowsc@reeths-puffer.org. Thank you!

When the students and teacher are so engaged in rotating from product to product giving peer feedback that they don't even notice a visitor in the room, you know it's a great day. Feedback from others is an important part of the writing process. Everyone gets better. #ubuntu
