NVUSD's Food Services Program, NOSH (Napa's Operative for School food Health), is proud to offer healthy foods with the highest quality ingredients. Any child attending a school in the district may register and pre-pay for meals, and children from families with lower incomes may qualify for free or reduced-price meals.

The Free & Reduced Meal application process is now open for the upcoming school year. We strongly encourage every family to apply for Free & Reduced Meals, as there are many benefits, even if your child doesn’t plan to eat school lunches, and even if you don't think you are eligible. In addition to offering free or reduced- price meals, the Free & Reduced Program also provides school funding, and discounts for instrument rentals, internet access, college application fees and SAT exam fees.

The application process is easy and confidential. It is important for all families to fill out the Free & Reduced Meal application to ensure our schools and families receive the available resources. Families can register through the Titan Solutions Parent Portal, our secure online system.

As a reminder, Free & Reduced applications are not needed for students attending Snow, Shearer, Phillips, and McPherson elementary schools, as all students at these schools automatically qualify for free daily meals, due to NVUSD's participation in the Community Eligibility Program.

NVUSD received the highest credit rating from Standard and Poor’s (S&P) Global Ratings for their 2020 Tax Revenue Anticipation Note, marking a significant improvement in the district’s financial health.

As a part of goal four of the district’s strategic plan, NVUSD is committed to Tactical Proactive and Efficient Asset Management and the improved credit rating allows the district to borrow money at lower rates. All school districts issue some form of debt financing, primarily through selling bonds. In this particular case, NVUSD issued Tax Revenue Anticipation Notes (TRAN) to address short term cash flow needs. Due to the very healthy assessed property values in Napa County, the vast majority of revenues received by NVUSD come from property taxes twice a year. As a result, NVUSD issues a TRAN annually to meet short term cash flow needs.

Securing lower interest rates, translates to less general fund liability and more budget dollars for educational programming.

“NVUSD”s commitment to implementing smart, proactive financial controls, including right sizing the District, improved our structural deficit and ultimately our credit rating. It is imperative that we effectively manage our financial health to protect and increase programming for our students,” said Rabinder (Rob) Mangewala, Assistant Superintendent, Business Services.

All NVUSD facilities, including playgrounds, outdoor sport courts, and fields, are closed to the public. The closure is necessary to comply with both the State of California and the Napa County Health Officer’s Shelter at Home order. 

The order specifically states that “all non-essential public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a household or living unit are prohibited.” 

“NVUSD is committed to complying fully with the State and County’s Shelter at Home order, and believe it is our responsibility to close areas that serve as natural gathering places for groups, either intentionally or unintentionally. To protect the health and safety of our community, we all must adjust to, and respect new guidelines and protocols,” said Mike Pearson, NVUSD Assistant Superintendent of Operational Services.
