With school meaning two meals a day for many students in the community, Clinton schools are making sure they provide this opportunity with classes suspended.
Superintendent Curt Nettles indicates Drew Goebel and Steve Hamilton have spearheaded the meal distribution initiative. Students can pick up a sack containing lunch and breakfast each day school is not in session.
Nettles says the meals are available for pickup from 11 am-1 pm this week at the Clinton Junior High School, Lincoln Elementary School, Douglas Elementary School, Webster Apartments, and Countryside Apartments.
Nettles notes next week is spring break and the district will not be distributing meals during spring break. The Neighborhood Care Center will be open during spring break for families who need their assistance.
Nettles indicates the district is preparing themselves for schools to be closed longer and will continue to provide breakfast and lunch each day school is suspended.
