SSP Public Schools Committed to Serving all Students a Healthy Lunch
Special District 6 is committed to providing nutritious, high quality meals that students enjoy. School meals help students stay healthy and give them the energy and focus they need to be successful in the classroom. Every student is provided lunch each day at South St. Paul Public Schools regardless of their ability to pay.
Recent news reports have drawn attention to district procedures for providing meals to students. This year, we implemented a low balance calling, texting, and email system to notify all parents that their student’s meal balance is low. We have received very positive feedback about this system. We have always addressed the low balance issue by reminding all students who come through the serving line that they need to bring money soon. Low balance notes are also sent home to elementary school parents to remind them of their student’s low meal account balance.
Each of our schools also has an Angel account that we use for transferring money into a student’s account to cover the cost of the meal for the day. Any person or interested in donating to an angel fund, can contact our Student Nutrition Office at (651) 457-9483.
Again, our goal is to provide each student coming through the serving line with a meal.
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'AA+' enhanced rating to South St. Paul Schools
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'AA+' enhanced rating and 'AA-' issuer credit rating (ICR) to South St. Paul Public School Special School District No. 6, Minn.'s series 201A general obligation (GO) school building bonds. At the same time, we affirmed our 'AA+' enhanced rating and 'AA-' ICR on the district's existing debt. The outlook on all ratings is stable. These ratings are the result of:
The stable outlook on the enhanced rating reflects the outlook on the district's GO debt rating. The outlook on the ICR reflects Standard & Poor's expectation that the district will continue to implement timely corrective actions to return to balanced operations. In addition, we expect the district will use its good planning policies to adjust expenditures to maintain at least policy level fund balances, which we consider strong. The district's participation in the Minneapolis-St. Paul economy provides further stability to the rating.
