Bus Stops During Remote Learning

During remote learning, we will be handing out meals each day and learning packets for K-2 students each Monday at bus stops.

During the first two weeks of school, packets will be delivered on Tuesdays because there is no school on Mondays. The schedule will begin on the first day of school, Tuesday, Sept. 1.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is extending its free meal program through December to help ensure all children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that all meals will be free. All children 18 years and younger may receive meals (not just students). Parents and guardians may pick up meals for their children. 

The regular bus schedule has been expanded to include new stops in areas where children normally walk to school. Please check the schedule for your child's school below.

At the bus stops:

  • Families need to wear a face masks and socially distance.

  • Be aware that some food needs to be refrigerated immediately. Follow instructions on food preparation and handling that comes with every meal.

Please note that when the district transitions to hybrid learning the bus stop schedule will change and no longer include stops that are within the school walking zones.
