Children Curbside Grab-N-Go Meals: 

Starting Monday, April 13, there will be a change to our curbside lunch distribution. In order to decrease the number of times that families have to go out to get lunches, we will be covering multiple days with less lunch pick-ups. Our lunch pick-ups will now only be on Mondays and Thursdays. The Monday lunches will have enough food to cover Monday through Wednesday and the Thursday lunches will cover Thursday and Friday.

So starting next week, we will begin our curbside lunch pick-ups on Monday and Thursday only from 11 am – 12 pm. Just a reminder that meals CAN ONLY BE PROVIDED TO THE CHILD. Simply arrive WITH YOUR CHILDREN (ages 18 or younger) to the elementary school front entrance curb and we will bring the lunches to you. Stay Safe!!

In closing, we are hopeful our steps to close school following spring break will assist in decreasing the infection rate of the virus and we will be able to get back to as close to normal as possible.  In the meanwhile, please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers and staff via email as necessary.  Best wishes for health and safety.
