Curbside Pickup

Meals will be available for Remote Learning students through curbside pickup at all schools. At most schools, the curbside location will be in the bus loop drop-off area. Families who are picking up meals are asked to stay in their vehicle.

 

Meals can be picked up on school days at elementary schools from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and at middle and high schools from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Parents or guardians can pick up meals for all of their students at one campus. Students do not need to be in the vehicle during pickup. However, a student ID number and the campus name of each student must be provided to curbside staff.
