In-Person Learning Students

Students will be provided with breakfast and lunch at their school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. In addition, students at all middle and high schools, and McLane, LP Brown, Hansen and Garfield elementary schools, may take a breakfast and lunch home at the end of the day on Tuesday and Friday.


Students may visit any OSD school or community site listed above that is distributing meals; they do not need to obtain a meal from their nearest school or the school that they are enrolled at. Distribution will be walk-up and drive-up, following school and public health department guidelines for social distancing and face coverings. The USDA waiver also allows parents and guardians to pick up meals for their children.

Students will have a choice of regular, vegetarian and gluten-free meals. To order gluten free meals for the school where you choose to pick up your meals, please call (360) 596-7062.
