COVID-19 Update April 13, 2020
On Tuesday, April 7th, the Walton County School District was able to feed over 2,500 students a total of eight meals (four breakfasts and four lunches) for a grand total of over 10,500 meals. This was a 37% increase from our daily distribution plan.
We want to thank everyone who made our first weekly food distribution possible! Thank you to our food service workers, bus drivers, custodians and plant managers, guardians, nurses, and school teams. We also want to thank all of the departments, such as our Facility Department, who sent teams to help prepare meals. It was a true team effort, and we appreciate all who contributed!
Parents, because of the success of Tuesday’s weekly distribution, we will continue this model as planned.
Upcoming dates for food will be April 14th, 21st, and 28th. On Tuesdays, parents will be provided with 10 meals per child (five breakfasts and five lunches). Our five food distribution sites will remain the same (Paxton, Mossy Head, Maude Saunders Elementary, Walton Middle, and Freeport High School); however, we have continued to make small adjustments to our transportation routes. Please see the attached stops. On Tuesdays, food distribution sites will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Please continue to call or submit online questions to your child’s school if you need information about food, technology help, computer devices, paper portfolios, and more. We are here to help and continuing your child’s education is important to us!
