Meals to be provided to students via buses, hot meals available for pickup
With the mandated closure of schools by Governor Northam on March 13, Roanoke County Public Schools is implementing a program beginning Monday to deliver prepared bagged meals during the regular afternoon bus routes to any students who would like meal.
In addition, starting Tuesday, the school system will provide a prepared hot meal for pickup at eleven schools around Roanoke County each weekday from Noon – 12:30 p.m. Those schools are:
Cave Spring Middle
Glen Cove Elementary
Glenvar High School
Green Valley Elementary
Herman L. Horn Elementary
Masons Cove Elementary
Mount Pleasant Elementary
Oak Grove Elementary
Penn Forest Elementary
Parents are asked to complete an online form (please click this link for the form) or parents can call their child’s school to inform the school system of their meal preference (hot pickup meal or drop off bagged meal). Each meal also will include a prepared bagged breakfast. All meals are free.
“We understand students depend on our schools as a reliable source of good nutrition. We are striving to make sure those students have a daily meal,” said Dr. Ken Nicely, Superintendent of Roanoke County Public Schools.
