Rather than paying bus drivers and food services workers to sit idle, we are grateful the school district is putting them to work passing out free meals. Please take advantage of this great service! Those preparing and distributing meals are taking appropriate precautions and the food is pre-packaged and the packages are placed inside of a paper bag.

Please know that children are still allowed to pick up meals at their designated meal distribution locations. Some expressed concern that the state’s new “Stay at Home” order meant they could no longer go to these locations for their children to obtain food. This program falls under one of the identified reasons you are ALLOWED to leave your home. However, we encourage you to follow social distancing guidelines and stay at least six feet away from others who are there. As much as children may want to visit or hug their friends, please do not allow this to happen.
