In last night’s meeting of the Kenton City Schools Board of Education it was made clear that any school age children 1-18 regardless of what district they attend can sign up for school lunches through Kenton according to the guidelines for the Federal Summer Seamless Feeding Program.
The district asks that adults complete a google form at https://go.kcs.me/lunchdelivery It is asked that this form be completed so that enough lunches can be made.
There will be 5 sites to pick up lunches. Kenton elementary School, Kenton Middle School, Kenton High school, Board of Education Office, and the former Eastcrest Elementary School between the hours of Noon and 1P.M.
The district will also be dropping off lunches to Scioto Village Apartments at Noon and lunches to Wharton Park at 12:30 P.M.
If a family is unable to pick up a lunch at an assigned location and needs to have a lunch delivered they should contact the district office at 419-673-0775.
Pick up Procedures include that if you are driving stay in your vehicle and follow the drive thru procedures as directed by the staff. If a family is walking to the site it is asked that one family member be sent to pick up all lunches for the family of that day.
In response to the Governor’s 3 week school closure teachers are currently preparing online assignments in which students will use district issued computers to do lessons. If a student is not able to have access to the internet then paper copies will be available for pick up at the district office. It is asked however that people call before coming to pick up lessons.
Information for online lessons can be found at the top of the Kenton City Schools Website or at https://tech.kentoncityschools.org/olr/ .
