Bossier Schools to end “Grab-and-Go” meals after Monday March 23rd

929

A message from the Bossier Parish School System:

This afternoon, following the Governor’s stay-at-home order, a conference call was held with representatives from the Governor’s Office, the Louisiana Department of Education and school superintendents from around the state regarding the continuation of the school serving sites.

All facets of the meal program were discussed and it was a difficult conversation. The issue is not whether feeding students is important. We all agree that it is. At the same time, the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana is rapidly rising and the safety of our food service employees and other staff members must also be considered. We must take every precaution to protect them.

Regretfully, Bossier Schools will suspend its food service program after Monday, March 23 and close all sites, as well as administrative offices, until further notice as directed by the State of Louisiana. Updates will continue to be made on our COVID-19 page, which can be found at www.bossierschools.org.

We urge everyone to heed the Governor’s orders and take every precaution to keep their family safe.
