Change to Meal distributions Days – Information and FAQ:
Starting Wednesday, February 3, meals will be distributed on Wednesdays and Fridays. Pick up times will stay the same from 11:15 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Middle School locations (Redmond MS, Inglewood MS, Timberline MS, Rose Hill MS, Finn Hill MS, Kamiakin MS). Pickup times will remain the same for the delivery locations with the exception of Rush and Mead (see website for details: https://www.lwsd.org/pathway-forward/grab-go-student-meals)
Why are we changing the meal distribution days?
Meal distribution days were changed proactively to ensure that all students will continue to have access to 7 free lunches and breakfasts each week as we transition to in person learning. Keeping distribution on Tuesday would mean that students with in-person classes on Tuesday and/or Friday would not be able to pick up meal packs for the full week. Changing the distribution day to Wednesday will allow K-1 students to receive a 3-day meal pack (for Wednesday and the weekend) and hybrid students to receive a 5-day meal pack (3 days of remote learning and 2 days for the weekend). Fully remote learners can pick up a 5-day meal pack on Wednesday and a 2-day meal pack on Friday.
How will each learning model receive a full week of meals?
