ALL IN FOR KIDS ONLINE AUCTION!
YMCA OFFERS EMERGENCY DAYCARE
🚌  Lunch Squad Rolling Out From Park Place Middle  🚌
A huge thank you to all of the staff in the Monroe School District making sure our kids are still getting lunches during the week. There is a huge diversity of need in our community, we appreciate all of our community partners for coming together to serve!

***************************************************
From the district -
The provision of meals to children is considered an “essential operation” and therefore is permitted to continue. Free grab and go meals will continue to be handed out from 11:30-1:30 Monday through Friday at all five elementary schools and meal deliveries will continue to designated locations. When picking up meals, we urge all students and families to please maintain social distancing to protect themselves and our community from further spreading of the COVID-19 virus. Thank you!
Beginning on Monday, March 23 we will be out delivering meals to 42 different bus stops! Our five elementary school sites will remain open from 11:30-1:30 Monday-Friday, but we felt it was important to try and meet the needs of more families throughout our community. These meals are free to ALL children and no preregistration is required.
