More Food Resources

From Principal Dysart:

The governor of Washington State has asked that all schools close until April 24th.  This is to further stop the spread of COVID-19.  Yesterday, you received notice it would be a 2 week closure, so news is changing fast.  I will regularly update you on changes and hopefully, be able to provide helpful information and resources to our school community while everyone is at home, dealing with this unanticipated event.  Please know our staff is still committed to helping in a variety of ways.  In future communications, I will describe more ideas for how to bring learning into the home – staff are working on this problem right now. Also, I will continue to send you ideas for how to seek help or assistance with food, housing, and childcare.  

For food, volunteers served ready to eat meals and groceries for home in our school parking lot today.  They will continue to do so tomorrow, Friday, March 13th, from 8AM – 7PM.  Drop by at any point during these hours. The district is planning to get nutrition service back up and running soon (look for this update in a future message).
