Due to the huge outbreak and confirmed 124 positive cases of COVID from the seafood plant in Newport, and knowing how deeply some of the families of the employees extend into our communities, we suspended all work in the district for two days, Monday June 8 and Tuesday June 9. This was in order to get some guidance and information from the health department and to try to wrap our heads around this. We have done that and are ready to move some things forward.
We decided to initiate our Summer Meals Program on the regular start day Wednesday June 10th at our 5 sites: Oceanlake in Lincoln City, Sam Case in Newport, Toledo Jr Sr in Toledo from June 10-17 and then Toledo Elementary after that, Siletz Charter in Siletz and Crestview in Waldport. Lunch times are 12:00pm to 1:30pm. This is curbside pick up only.
The following are the requirements in order to receive your summer meals and they center mostly around safety:
1. THIS IS CURBSIDE PICK UP ONLY. PLEASE DO NOT DROP ANYTHING OFF. IF YOUR SCHOOL WAS CLOSED DURING A DROP TIME THAT WAS SCHEDULED, THE SCHOOL WILL RESCHEDULE THAT TIME AND COMMUNICATE THAT WITH YOU AFTER JUNE 15TH.
2. YOU MUST WEAR A MASK OR FACE COVERING. ANYONE NOT WEARING A MASK CANNOT BE SERVED.
3. PLEASE HAVE YOUR PASSENGER SIDE WINDOW DOWN AS YOU PULL UP AND WE WILL PUT THE MEAL THROUGH THE WINDOW. PLEASE TRY TO LEAVE THAT SEAT IN THE CAR OPEN.
4. PLEASE DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR AT ANY TIME.
Our Meal program is for kids ages 1 to 18. It is our pleasure to serve food to you and your families this summer. We just need to do it safely for everyone.
Thank you for your patience and grace. We are trying as hard as we can to get this right.
