Lexington District One changes food program for children

Mar 30 2020

Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, and due to a waiver granted by the USDA, parents/guardians taking advantage of Lexington County School District One’s free food program for to all children 18 and under, and individuals with disabilities up to age 21 that are still enrolled in school, will not have to have their children with them when picking up their students’ meals.

If children are not feeling well, we encourage parents to keep the children home. If the child/children are not present when picking up meals, the parent/guardian must present a form of valid child identification, such as:

School identification card

Child's passport

Government-issued child identification card

Homework assignment with name and school listed

Document proving parent/guardian identity and relationship to the child, such as:

Adoption decree

Doctor, clinic or hospital record

Religious record

Daycare center record.

To pick up the meals, at any one of the seven schools designated as “grab and go” areas (Carolina Springs Middle, Forts Pond Elementary, Gilbert Primary, Oak Grove Elementary, Red Bank Elementary, Rosenwald Community Learning Center, and White Knoll Elementary) or the areas designated as bus drop-offs (A complete list of stops appears here.)

As a reminder, the plan to feed students allows parents to drive into the student drop-off area of any one of the seven school food sites from 11 a.m. through 1 p.m. or to meet the bus at any designated location to pick up the food.
