Nutrition and proper food choices are important components in students’ success. The City School District of New Rochelle is providing free lunches next week while students take part in virtual learning.
Bag lunches will be available for pickup Monday, Jan. 3, 2022 through Friday, Jan. 7, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at:
- Albert Leonard Middle School, in the front loop
- Columbus Elementary School, at the front entrance
- Jefferson Elementary School, at the Weyman Avenue bus area
- New Rochelle High School, at House 4, under the bridge (drive around House 4)
- Trinity Elementary School, at the front door
The school district announced Friday that virtual learning, instead of in-person learning in our school buildings, will be provided next week. The school district intends to return to in-person learning on Monday, Jan. 10, 2021.
The decision to switch to virtual learning was made after careful deliberation, and is designed to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. COVID-19 infection rates continue to sharply and rapidly increase, and the speed of transmission of highly contagious COVID variants represents another alarming component of this significant public-health crisis. The rates of infection and transmission have surpassed levels seen at the height of the pandemic last year.
Additional updates will be provided. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and your investment in our children’s futures. Happy new year.
