From Your Lathrop Kitchen Staff

Jeanette & Maggie, Lathrop’s curbside pickup staff, have enjoyed serving meals to our students and hope those of you who haven’t stopped in will do so soon. With the school quarter winding down, we wanted to share a couple of things with you.

Lathrop's curbside pickup meal program’s last day of service will be December 18, 2020. We will not be distributing meals during the District’s winter break.

Even though all meals are provided free of charge, we encourage everyone to complete a 2020-2021 meals application. Meal status may provide your student with reduced course fees, ACT/SAT/PSAT test fees, state of AK P-EBT resources, and other critical Federal funds for the District.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 456-7794 x 17101 or Nutrition Services Admin Office at 451-1004.

Happy Holidays!


Deb Marcos & Kitchen Staff- Fon, Paloma, Jeanette & Maggie.
