    Beginning Monday, March 30, Escambia County School District’s Food Service Department is planning to add schools to the list of sites where families can pick up breakfast and lunch, for free. All sites will give children or teens a breakfast meal and a lunch meal, during the same visit. The meals are designed to be carried away and consumed off campus (cafeteria/dining rooms will not be open). Meals will be distributed in a curbside pick-up operation. Food items will be in to-go containers and will consist of ready-to-eat food items that should be consumed when received or should be quickly refrigerated for consumption at a later time.

    According to the USDA’s policy, the child or children must be present to receive meals. They must be 18 and younger; and children do not have to be a student at that school in order to pick up meals there.

    Supplemental school meals will be available at the following sites beginning March 30, Monday through Friday. Because Friday, April 10, is a non-student day, families will need to make other arrangements for that day.

    Users can enter their address, and set a distance range, to see a map showing food service sites near them. The sites are labeled “Summer Food Service,” but they will be available this Spring due to the pandemic. Sites opening this spring may not be the same as the sites that were open last summer, so please check the locations, dates and times before you go.

    Also, as traffic patterns are established and the need can be assessed, site locations may be adjusted based on participation. Therefore, parents might want to periodically check the list of open sites.

    In an effort to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, Governor Ron DeSantis ordered Florida District students to remain out of school until Wednesday, April 15, 2020. 
    On Monday, March 30, 2020, all district employees, with the exception of Transportation employees, will return to their regular work locations. 
    Hours of operation for the district from March 30, 2020, through April 15, 2020, will be 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. 
    Upon arrival, each employee must go directly to their office or classroom, taking care not to congregate in groups of ten (10) or more in any common area. Instructional personnel will be receiving training outlined in the district’s Instructional Continuity Plan. School District Transportation Department employees will receive communication from their immediate supervisors, with instructions on when and where to report to work accordingly. 
    Superintendent Malcolm Thomas states, “It is paramount that the continuity of instruction occurs quickly and efficiently for the students of Escambia County. Therefore, remote instruction to students will commence on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. Parents and Guardians of students should expect to be contacted by teachers during the week of March 30, 2020, to discuss instructional continuity plans for their students.” 
    All state and district testing has been canceled for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Due to the cancellation of state testing, no school grades will be issued by the State of Florida this year. All athletic contests, practices, and extra-curricular activities are also canceled for the remainder of the school year. 
    The school district will provide additional assistance to parents and students by utilizing dedicated employees to provide information about instructional resources. 
    Superintendent Thomas notes, “The district will make every effort to work with parents and employees experiencing hardship situations. In addition, if employees are experiencing symptoms of illness, have traveled out of the country, or been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19, they need to remain at home and contact their immediate supervisors.” 
    Superintendent Thomas will be providing updates to families and staff by automated telephone messages. Parents and employees are encouraged to monitor district media sources, including the district website.
