The Rowan-Salisbury Schools (RSS) Board of Education appointed April Kuhn as interim superintendent, effective immediately.
School lunches will not be free to all students this year due to the end of the federal waivers that supported this initiative during the pandemic. If a child needs free or reduced lunch, parents must fill out a Free and Reduced Lunch form on the new Titan Family Portal. The portal can be used to view weekly menus, manage your student's meal account (payments, low-balance alerts, and transfer funds between family members), and apply for Free & Reduced Meals.
The Rowan-Salisbury Schools School Nutrition Department is providing free meals to children ages 3 to 18 throughout the summer at various locations.
