District to offer drive-thru meal service during school closure
Brunswick, Ga.–Beginning on Wednesday, March 18, Glynn County Schools will provide an opportunity for families to drive through and pick up meals for the children in their family, at four school sites throughout the district – Altama Elementary, Brunswick High, Burroughs-Molette Elementary and Sterling Elementary.
These approved sites, which derive from our federally funded Summer Lunch Program, were selected because they are centrally located and easily reachable for many of our families. This program and these meals are forstudents only. Per USDA guidelines, children must be present in order for meals to be provided. Meals will only be provided for students who are in the car at the time of pick up.
Families can pick up meals for all children under the age of 18, or under the age of 21 for youth with special needs between the hours of11 a.m.and1 p.m.on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays until the beginning of Spring Break.
On Mondays (March 23and 30), students will receive a lunch for that day, breakfast andlunch for Tuesday, andbreakfast for Wednesday. On Wednesdays (March 18and 25, andApril 1), students can expect a lunch for that day, breakfast andlunch for Thursday, andbreakfast for Friday. On Fridays (March 20and 27, andApril 3), they will collect a lunch for that day and breakfast for the following Monday.
Meals will be served “grab-n-go” style, as they will not be consumed on site. Students who currently receive documented Special Diet Meal Accommodation through the School Nutrition Program, please let us know if your student will need to participate in the pick-up meal service during the school closure.
If Glynn County Schools remains closed beyond these dates, an update about meal services will be provided at that time.
