COVID 19 FAQs


Healthy Meals

Who is eligible for breakfast and lunch each day?

All Children 18 and under in the household if at least one child attends a dismissed school

Can a family member pick up food for another family member?

Yes,  Food Service Workers will be required to ask the household member who is picking up the meals how many children are in the family and where they go to school.  If they indicate that a child is too young to attend a school, they can still receive a meal.

How are we partnering with community organizations that want to provide assistance?

Our priority at this time is getting food prepared and delivered to the 12 serving sites that we have established.   We are evaluating the possibility of adding additional community sites as needed after our initial start up of off site meals on Monday March 16. Thank you to all who have offered support at this time.  It is most appreciated.

How will MMSD communicate other non-MMSD sites where food and supplies might be available?

A list of food pantry locations and their updates will be included in the MMSD resources.  Information on Community Center resources will also be available.

Will food pantries remain open in schools?

No. Food Pantries at school sites will be closed. 

This is a full list of Food Pantries in our area. Some may be closed or limited due to COVID-19.


High School

What will happen to our Quarter 3 grades?

The quarter 3 grading window will NOT open on 3/20.  We will continue to update as we determine the new timeline.

More details to follow as we move through technical details and communication planning.
