Effective September 9 all Gordon County Schools’ students will be able to eat breakfast and lunch at no cost to the family. The USDA has announced an extension of the Seamless Summer Meal Program for meal service through December 31, 2020. A la carte and additional meal items will continue to be charged to the student’s account.
In addition, beginning Monday, September 14, meals will be available for pick-up at any Gordon County School for all children ages 0-18. Fairmount Elementary School's pickup time is 11:00-12:30 at the side door of the cafeteria, across from the gym. Daily pick-up will include a lunch, as well as a breakfast for the following day. VAL students may pick-up meals at any school of their choosing. Detailed information regarding designated pick-up areas at each school is forthcoming.
It is still very important that families continue to submit Free & Reduced applications online through www.schoolcafe.com. Doing so will ensure eligible students will continue to receive free or reduced meals January 1, 2021.
