FLORENCE — Florence Unified School District is serving “Grab & Go” breakfast and lunch bags curbside for all students up to 18 years old at Florence K-8, Anthem K-8, Magma Ranch K-8 and Walker Butte Leadership School from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. weekdays.

Starting Monday, FUSD will also provide meals at San Tan Heights K-8, Skyline Ranch K-8 and at LifePoint Church near Copper Basin K-8 to serve more families in San Tan Valley.

Teachers will also maintain contact with students over the extended school closure, FUSD said in a statement.

“It is critical that we continue to provide an education to students who are unable to come to school. Students will be engaging with these activities starting on Monday. We will be utilizing digital tools that the teachers and students are already familiar with, as well as non-digital options for students who cannot access online learning. The key word throughout this time is ‘flexible’ as we attempt to support students and families while protecting the health of our communities,” FUSD said in a statement.

“As of now, all District schools and offices are closed to the public in order to practice social distancing with the hopes that our efforts #flattenthecurve. Although our buildings may be closed, our District is ‘open’ online to our students, staff and families throughout this unprecedented time. We are proud of the initiatives every employee has made to remain positive, helpful and especially flexible as we continue to navigate this pandemic together. Together, #FUSDachieves .”
