Lincoln County Schools received a large donation of food from Pursuit Church, 300 bags of food that will be distributed this week. We also continue to receive monetary donations to assist in food distribution. To date, monetary donations total $2370.00 which will be used to purchase additional food for families in need. Christian Ministry of Lincoln County has provided 400 meals for distribution this week. Lincoln County Schools is grateful for the continued contributions and generosity as we work together to feed our school community.
CLEANING OF SCHOOL FACILITIES
The custodians at all school and district sites continue cleaning and disinfecting our buildings. Currently we are disinfecting with a new cleaner, HALT, which is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency with claims to kill all emerging viral pathogens. This industrial cleaning will continue to take place daily and for the duration of the school closure.
FREE MEALS TO-GO
As of April 21, 2020, the Lincoln County Schools Child Nutrition Department has served 165,868 meals by offering the Grab and Go Feeding Program. Meals To-Go sites are open Monday through Friday and are including weekend meals on Fridays.
All feeding sites are drive-through only. Parents may go to any school offering these free meals. Parents are not required to go to the school their child attends to pick up meals. We are encouraging the community to take advantage of the Free Meals To-Go program at the eight designated school locations.
