Rules/Guidelines/Fee Schedules
 
The attached Administrative Regulation (AR) 1330 contains the rules and guidelines that all groups/organizations must adhere to when using school district facilities.  A current fee schedule is included within this document.  Each year the rates are subject to increase and are approved by the School Board.  Failure to adhere to all rules and guidelines could result in an existing approval being revoked and/or disapproval of future applications.
 
Fund Raising Events and Other Food Sales
 
In order to sell any type of potentially hazardous foods (hot and cold) the Health Department requires very specific regulations, vendor permits, and not only a Riverside County Food Handlers License but a ServSafe Certification.  You may access the Health Department website at www.rivcoeh.org,  under Public Information tab scroll down to the Temporary Food Facility Operators Guide. This contains information on keeping foods protected, proper hand washing, food temperatures, etc.  Organizations need to obtain a permit from the Health Department at least two weeks prior to the event.
 
The Health Department short term permits for special events are expensive and require strict operational standards.  There is no fee for non-profit charitable organizations which operate three days or less. Permits cans be obtained once every 90 days.
 
Additionally, MVUSD also have Board Policies (BP) and Administrative Regulations (AR) in place regarding the handling and sale of food items.  Please refer to the attached Nutrition Services Bulletin containing District guidelines and restrictions for fund raising events and other food sales.  You may also contact Carla Lyder, Director of Nutrition Services at clyder@mvusd.net.
