Student Meals During COVID-19

In order to respond to the nutritional needs of our students during this time, the Prairie Grove School District has created the following plan for this week to assist our students and their families.

If needed, the Prairie Grove Elementary School cafeteria will be open to offer Grab and Go sack lunches to Prairie Grove students who come by the Elementary school between 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. today, Monday, March 16th.  The lunches can be picked up at the cafeteria doors on the backside of the building on the east side.

Starting on Tuesday, March 17th, our school buses will leave the bus lot at 11 a.m., run their regular bus routes, and deliver sack lunches and milk to any school-aged child.  These routes will begin at 11 a.m. each day this week.  Each student will need to give their name and the names of any individual (that meets the age limits) they are picking up lunch for that day.  Each sack lunch will contain items for that day’s lunch and breakfast.  While buses will run their usual routes, the times that a bus gets to a bus stop will vary depending on previous stops.  Parents who wish their child to participate are urged to have their children prepared to meet the bus starting at 11 a.m.  Due to traffic considerations in some areas, buses will not be able to wait for very long if no students are present.
