Beginning September 28th, 2020 Ashland Independent School District will provide an in-person learning option for students. As a result, the current structure of meal distribution will change. Students choosing the in-person instructional model will have access to one free breakfast and one free lunch each day at school.
Students choosing the virtual platform may continue to utilize any of our 8 school sites to receive meals.
These sites include Ashland Exceptional Early Childhood Center, each elementary school, Ashland Middle School, and Ashland Blazer High School. We will continue to utilize the “drive-through system to minimize contact. The meal service times at each school location will remain the same. We will serve from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at each school site. On Monday and Wednesday each student will receive an additional breakfast and lunch for the non-service days. In order to receive a meal, the child must be present OR the parent/guardian must present the student’s meal card to the food service worker at the time of meal pick-up. Please note we will NOT provide mobile sites when in-person instruction is available. The last day for mobile sites to be available will be Friday, September 25th, 2020.
We remain committed to providing meals for the students in our community during this difficult time. We will keep parents abreast of any changes. If you have questions please contact Linda Calhoun or Lena Reese at 606-327-2706. You may also contact your child’s school cafeteria manager.
