Safe Return to School

As we prepare to safely welcome our Buccaneers back to in-person instruction, we want you and your family to feel prepared to do the same. As you may expect, school will look a little different than it has in the past. Talking about some of these differences with your child will help as we transition back:

* All students and staff will have their temperature taken before entering the building.

* All students and staff will wear face coverings.

* Students will be socially distanced (or spread out) in the classrooms.

* Students will stay in their classrooms rather than traveling through the building for specials.

* Students will need to wash/sanitize their hands throughout the day!

School Breakfast and Lunch

Families can apply at any time for free or reduced price meals at school, which may also qualify them for other state and federal benefits. Learn more at

Students in all grade levels can receive a free breakfast and lunch from an operating location until December 31*. Please visit for a list of operating sites. Students are not required to visit their assigned school and do not have to be present to receive meals. The curbside meal service will operate Monday through Friday from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Students will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost!
