With the schools closed for at least the next three weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Woodridge Local School District will make free breakfast and lunch available to all students during that time frame.
To participate in this meal program, District Superintendent Walter Davis said parents "must opt in using an online order form that has been created and posted to the district website."
The order form can be accessed at www.woodridge.k12.oh.us at a link that says: "Order Form For Student Meals."
Parents must fill out the online order form by Monday, March 16, at 10 a.m. Davis said once orders are placed, families will be contacted with more details about distribution. The first meal will be distributed on Wednesday, March 18.
Davis said families may come to the school buildings on Monday to pick up their child’s medications, textbooks, Chromebooks and other materials. A member of the district’s Akron Children’s Hospital nursing staff will be in the buildings to return medications to students’ families. Middle school students who have Malley’s Chocolate orders can collect the items on Monday, too.
The two windows of time on Monday for families to come to the buildings are: 7:30-10:30 a.m. and 2:30-6 p.m.
Davis said the district is working on providing educational resources that students can access during the closure. After 4 p.m. on Monday, parents should go to a link on the district’s web site to access "the portal where these resources will be available," Davis said.
For homes that do not have Internet access, Davis said parents should contact their building principal for assistance in accessing the resources.
