DCS update regarding meal availability during our extended school closing
First, our Friday backpack program will continue as scheduled and backpacks will go out this Friday. However, for the duration of the school closing, backpacks will need to be picked up from the main entrance of Downsville Central School or the East Branch fire hall between the hours of 9:00 am and 10:00 am. If picking up the backpack presents a hardship, please contact the principal’s office. Likewise, if you are not currently enrolled in the backpack program, you can still sign up.
Second, breakfast and lunch will be available for students beginning Monday, March 23rd. These meals will be available for daily pickup at the main entrance of Downsville Central School and the East Branch fire hall between the hours of 9:00 am and 10:00 am on weekdays. Again, if picking up the meals presents a hardship, please contact the school to see if other arrangements can be made.
In order to determine the amount of food, we need to have an accurate count of students that will be participating in these meals by 3:00 pm on Wednesday, March 18th. If you would like to sign up for the weekday meals and/or the Friday backpack program please do one of the following:
Finally, as a reminder to all community members, a food bank is open at the East Branch fire hall on Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:30 pm and at the Readburn Assembly of God on the second and fourth Sundays of the month from 12:30 – 2:30. Colchester Food Bank in Downsville will be open Wednesday 10-12pm.
Thank you for your continued cooperation
