10-21-2020 — Meals provided to all students at no cost through June

All Lexington County School District One students can receive breakfast and lunch at no cost for the remainder of the 2020–2021 school year. The United States Department of Agriculture recently extended the funding for the food program for students.

All elementary students can enjoy a no-cost breakfast and lunch at school Monday through Thursday. They can also take home a breakfast and a lunch for Friday (e-learning day). To order the Friday meals, parents must complete their school’s form each week.

AA and BB cohort students in middle and high schools can continue to receive meals at no cost on their face-to-face days. They can also order take-home meals for their three e-learning days using the forms provided by their schools at the beginning of the year.

The district’s Online Learning Academy students can continue to receive breakfast and lunch meals at no cost. Parents of Online Learning Academy students must complete the form linked here by 6 p.m. each Tuesday when it closes. The link opens each Friday at 1 p.m. for the following week’s meals.

The district’s Online Learning Academy families can pick up meals each Friday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at any one of the district’s five designated drive-through locations (Carolina Springs Middle, Forts Pond Elementary, Gilbert Elementary, Oak Grove Elementary, White Knoll Elementary). Online Learning Academy parents must show their student’s school identification card to pick up meals.

Parents with questions should email Ashley Summers at asummers@lexington1.net.
