Good morning Rockets,
Over the past three hours, a dedicated team of 30 volunteers handed out over 9,000 meals for our students. The process went well, as we were able to do so while also being considerate of the social distancing expectation. We are glad to be able to do this for our community. We will utilize the same process next Wednesday. Our buildings will remain locked down between now and then. The plan is explained and summarized below.
On Wednesday, April 1st, we will have volunteers in both the Roberts Road and Giles Road parking lots to allow a "drive up" pick up of meals. While both entrances will be equally functional, we'd appreciate if those with the last name starting with A-L would use the Roberts Road entrance (enter via the north entrance and leave via the south entrance), and those with the last name starting with M-Z would use the Giles Road entrance. The lines will be open from 9-11 AM on Wednesday, April 1st.
Our plan will be to distribute a mix of cereal, cereal bars, muffins, and milk for breakfast. We will have sunbutter, jelly, bread, fruits and vegetables for lunch. Lunch meat and cheese are in short supply, so, again, those will not be on the menu next week.
A summary of the plan:
Last name A-L- enter the Roberts Rd parking lot between 9 and 11 AM from the north. Drive past the tennis courts and toward the front/main entrance. A volunteer will ask you how many students you are picking up for and write down the name(s). 7 breakfasts and 7 lunches will be provided for each child.
Last name M-Z- enter the Giles Rd parking lot between 9 and 11 AM from the only entrance available. Turn right and follow the circle drive along the HS and toward the front/main entrance. A volunteer will ask you how many students you are picking up for and write down the name(s). 7 breakfasts and 7 lunches will be provided for each child.
I want to take this opportunity to thank those who volunteered to take on this challenging, but vitally important task today.
Each week we will assess the viability and efficiency of our food service offerings.
Steve Edwards, Superintendent
