For Students in grades 6-12 in the Hybrid Model:  TUFSD will be providing Grab and Go Meals for students grades 6-12 in the hybrid model in need of food.  At dismissal students may pick up a bag at the exit door containing breakfast and lunch for the next day.

Tuckahoe utilizes a point-of-sale system called "mySchoolBucks".  This program provides parents/guardians with the ability to add money to their student’s account and also monitor what they eat.  You can also find a link to the mySchoolBucks website on each school's website under the "Parent Resources" tab.
