If your child has been diagnosed by your family physician that they are lactose intolerant, your child will be given the dietary option of a lactose free milk substitute at breakfast and lunch.
Please bring in a physician's note to your school nurse so we have it on file.
The nurse will then notify the Nutrition Services cashier at your child's school of your child's dietary need. The cashier will put this information into their computer.Each time your child goes through the lunch line the cashier will be alerted and can make sure your child has the proper product on their tray.
If your child does not want the lactose free milk substitute, water and cups are available for them as another option.
If you have any questions, please contact Monty Gilbreath, Nutrition Services Director at 358-4231

Linda Hageman - Transportation Department
Linda started her employment with the District in November of 1974, working in the rec center. She worked as a pool aid and was a cheer coach for many years. Linda has driven school buses for over 30 years and has transported many of our current board members and teachers when they were students here at Converse County Schools. When Linda first started driving school bus, the buses were all manual transmissions with two speed rear ends. At that time the buses ran on compressed natural gas, she said that they started hard and that they would stall out in the most inconvenient places. Her first route was a short one behind D hill and then changed to a route out to Paris’ subdivision. Years later Linda started running the route to white school and is currently running this same route.
Linda has always been dependable, rain, snow or shine she shows up to get our young ones to school. She is always willing to drive for a field trip or other type of activity. Her first priority has always been for the students’ safety and to make sure that they are in a positive environment.
Linda has a lot of stories about the school and years gone by, and as she tells them she gets that sparkle in her eye. It’s that sparkle that all of us at transportation has grown so fond of. Thank you, Linda, for your years of service, and for transporting our most important cargo with such delicate attention.
Congratulations again for being our spot light employee….

Bob Snyder - Maintenance Department
The Maintenance Department would like to recognize Bob Snyder as the Spotlight Employee of the Month. Bob worked as a custodian at the Middle School for several years before coming to the Maintenance Department in 2007. He was hired primarily for his skills in the woodshop, but has brought much more than that to the department. Bob takes care of the Districts Locks and Doors , plows snow from district parking lots and football field, moved walls, and done remodels. He has been a team player and is always seeking out the best way to do things. Bob is meticulous in his tasks and is considered a great co-worker by his peers. Many of Bob’s woodworking skills are evident around the district such as the coffee shop at the high school, the remodel of the life skills room to a classroom at the middle school and the kitchen at the Central Office. Bob can do anything that is asked of him and this makes him an invaluable employee! Thank you Bob for your dedicated service to this department and the district.
