Meal Programs
If you participate in one of our student meal programs, we will be changing the location of meal pick up as a result of the District’s transition to fully remote instruction for students through Monday, January 18.

Student meals will be picked up from your student’s school each Wednesday from 3:30-5:30 PM — a week’s worth of meals will be provided each Wednesday. If you have multiple students in the District, all of your family’s meals will be picked up from your youngest student’s school. When you arrive for meal pick up, please look for the school bus parked outside the school. A member of our staff will be there to load the meals into your vehicle. If you have any questions or if you would like to be added, please contact Lacey Lantz.
