SCHOOL MEALS DURING 100% REMOTE LEARNING FOR ALL STUDENTS
Curbside Pickup of Meals at School

The COVID-19 pandemic has completely altered school cafeterias’ traditional way of operating. While students are learning from home, students can look forward to their breakfast and lunch meals (that they would normally enjoy in their schools’ cafeterias) being provided for them through curbside pick-up at their individual schools. Beginning with the first week of school, August 24-28, 2020, meals for the entire week will be distributed over the course of 2 days - Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Tuesdays, breakfast and lunch meals for 2 days will be provided and on Thursdays, breakfast and lunch meals for 3 days will be provided. Pick-up times for both days will be from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
