Snow Day Lunch Procedure

CKC Good Food, our school lunch provider, follows a procedure called “Shift Day” in the event of bad weather and an unexpected no-school day. If Yinghua has a snow day, the cancelled day’s menu shifts to the following day. Families who placed orders on days that are cancelled will receive credit in their Boonli accounts.
