FREE MEALS DURING ON-LINE LEARNING
Gordon County Schools is trying to make sure that high school students have access to food while on the hybrid schedule for the next few weeks. Arrangements are currently being made for students not scheduled to be in the building next week (students with last names beginning L – Z) to pick-up 5 days of breakfast and lunch this Friday (October 23).
Students or parents/guardians of students with last names beginning L – Z who plan to pick-up meals this Friday, October 23 please complete the form found here by 5pm today (Wednesday, October 21) to help us get an idea of the number of meals we need to have ready to distribute.
Going forward, students who are in the building will be able to take the 5-day meal package home on Fridays prior to their week of on-line learning, so students or parent/guardians of students with the last names beginning A – K do not need to complete the form.
