On March 16th, an email was sent referencing our planning process which is in place in the event that we are required to practice social distancing for a longer term than the week of 3/16 – 3/20. Along with that was a survey about internet access, access to supplies, asking for contact information and asking if you would be interested in meals for students.
To those that expressed an interest, meals will be delivered starting 3/18/2020. We have now received further guidance, however, and we will NOT be charging any fee for meals for students regardless of free and reduced lunch status. Meals will be delivered for free.
With that said, quite a few of our students do come from Jamestown every day. Jamestown Public Schools is offering free meals to all local Jamestown children whether they attend the Jamestown school district or not.
If you have expressed an interest in receiving meals from us but live in Jamestown and would rather receive meals from Jamestown Public Schools, please call our school at 701-489-3348 and let us know. If the phone is not answered, please leave a message.
