BSD School Closure Updates
Tuesday, March 24, 2020
We will continue to serve meals to our families, even during the Governor's "Stay home, stay healthy" order
Changes to the Grab-n-Go Meal program
The Bremerton School District is committed to providing meals to all children in Bremerton throughout the school closure. However, we are making some changes to our Grab-n-Go meal programs to support the social distancing of staff, students, parents, and volunteers in accordance with guidance and directives from federal, state, and local authorities.
Beginning Monday, March 30:
1) We will be distributing meals on Monday and Wednesday only.
Students will still receive 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches per week as they will get 2 days of meals on Monday, and 3 days of meals on Wednesday.
2) Meals will only be available for pick-up at the following schools:
Bremerton High School
Armin Jahr Elementary
West Hills STEM Academy
Families can visit any of these locations to pick up meals. All locations are open to all children!
3) Some bus routes will be combined to minimize the number of bus drivers needed for delivery.
Buses will be going to most of the same stops, but times may be changing.
A few bus stops have been added.
New bus routes are posted on our website by noon tomorrow.
Some important reminders about our FREE Grab-n-Go meal program
- Daily meal distribution at all schools and by bus will continue through Friday, March 27.
- Meal distribution on Monday and Wednesdays will begin next week (week of March 30).
- Families can wait at any bus stop or visit any of of our three schools distributing meals to pick-up meals. We encourage families to do what is most convenient for them.
- All children are welcome to participate in our program. There is no income requirement and students do not have to qualify for free or reduced lunch to participate.
- Meals are available for any child under age 18, including younger siblings who may not be enrolled in school. Lunches are also available for any currently-enrolled student up to age 21 (such as special education or Open Doors students).
- With our combined bus routes serving more families, our buses may be running late. Please plan on the possibility of buses running 10-15 minutes late. Thank you for your patience.
- Since children will be receiving multiple meals at a time, families might want to consider bringing bags, boxes or a wagon to carry food home with them.

It is Conference Week!
IMPORTANT: You may get a call from an unrecognized or unlisted number - and it could be your child's teacher! If you miss a call from a number you don't recognize, please check your voice mail and/or email! Our teachers are looking forward to talking with our families!
Our next Fun Friday is: Thank your Transportation and Child Nutrition Services staff!
We also want to say thanks to all of the other staff who are working hard every day in our buildings during this closure including our security staff, the District technology team, our custodians, and our maintenance staff. We'll be highlighting some of these staff members and their work in the coming weeks!
