Middle School and High School Lunches for Remote Learning and Block Schedules

Meals are available for our 7th -12th grade students. For the students who are on block schedules, meals are provided for students in the cafeteria for days they are in person. If you choose to do so, you may pick up a to-go meal through our drive-thru pickup on the days your student is on remote learning. If your child is fully remote you have the option to pick up food each day through the drive-thru.
Meals are available for pick up between 10:00 to 10:30 am. Each meal contains one breakfast and one lunch.
To participate in the to-go meal program starting February 1st, please fill out the following form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfkMlY1LnfXi5Otv6cSlYiWX-ma_2ynUGA02CumI0W9A2v91g/viewform?usp=sf_link 

Each week I will then send out a new form to the students who have signed up. For block schedules, please only mark the days you will pick up meals. DO NOT mark the days your student is in person. If you are fully remote you may mark all 4 days if you choose to.

Please call or text 719-695-0095 if you would like additional details.
