    Food Assistance Program During School Closure:

    Recently, our business office secured approval to extend this program beyond families who are approved to participate in the free and reduced lunch program. Beginning on Monday, April 6, 2020 our food assistance program will be made available to ALL CHILDREN under the age of 18. Other changes and reminders include:

    • Students need not be present when meals are picked up.
    • Distribution will take place between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays, with more than one meal (three meals on Mondays and two on Thursdays) provided at each pickup so that families need only visit their pickup site twice per week. (Please note: Barclay Elementary School will distribute meals on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.)
    • This distribution schedule will continue for the remainder of the closure, including Thursday, April 9 and Monday, April 13 (dates when schools were previously scheduled to be closed).
    • Alternative meal options will be available for those students with allergies, as necessary.


    The following schools are meal pickup locations:
