District 41 is providing FREE meal service for all children enrolled at each of our schools as part of the USDA National School Lunch and Breakfast program.
Distribution of all meals takes place every Wednesday at Hadley Junior High. Parents/guardians have the option of picking up food at one of two designated times, 6:30 - 7:45 am OR 11:30 - 12:30 pm, in a drive thru format in the front of Hadley. Children do not need to be present for pick up. Meals for each child will be provided with 5 days of breakfasts and lunches to take to eat wherever they may be learning. CLICK HERE FOR THE FLYER
For the latest details and updates visit www.d41foodandnutrition.org.
If you are unable to come to pick up at either of these times, please contact Tess Ngo at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tech Support During Remote Learning
Resources are currently available on the District 41 Tech at Home webpage. The page can be found by clicking the D41 Tech at Home button on the D41.org homepage or by visiting www.d41.org/techathome.
At this time, parents can review suggestions on how to resolve problems using Chromebooks or communicate with the Technology Department directly for help.
