COOLIDGE — Amid statewide school closures that will now last through April 10, the Coolidge Unified School District plans to launch a meal program for students in need.
Starting Monday, the school district will provide “Grab ’N’ Go” breakfast and lunch meals to students ages 18 and under, which will be available for pick-up in the Coolidge High School cafeteria parking lot. The free program will run Monday-Thursday from 9-11 a.m. throughout the duration of the closures.
District administrations noted that the program will be drive-thru only and urged everyone picking up meals to remain in their vehicles, as cafeteria staff will directly deliver meals to each child in the vehicle.
In addition, administrators indicated that should the school closures be extended further, the points of service will be expanded.
In response to the decision to continue the school closures for another two weeks by Gov. Doug Ducey, Superintendent Charie Wallace announced that CUSD will likely be rolling out a plan for curriculum within the next week.
