Due to the COVID ORANGE dial status, Gothenburg Public Schools Lunch Program will be offering limited choices at lunch. 

Social distancing is imperative and in order to move students through the line quickly and efficiently, we will be offering pizza and one other option on each line. Once the risk dial supports less-restrictive measures, we will offer many options for students. 

The health and safety of everyone is our top priority. Thank you for your understanding.

The SWEDE line will offer deli sandwiches, PB & J and Swede Chef Salads as meals
