The specifics of how each teacher, therapist, or service provider will be providing instruction and service to the children they serve varies broadly even within any individual program, because the needs of the students in each program vary widely.  However, a parent or family may find it useful to understand how a site will generally provide the services to students in a distance learning model.

In addition to the District Meal Plan, a new real-time online map can help families obtain free lunches for children during the COVID-19 pandemic. The free student meals map is a collaboration of Dakota County, cities and school districts that allows restaurants and other food providers to include themselves as resources on the map

Many children rely on school to provide breakfast and lunch during the day. Following the closure of schools due to COVID-19, Dakota County school districts and restaurants have offered to give free lunches to students in need. Users are encouraged to check the map regularly for updates and additional resources. The map can be viewed by going to the following link which will direct you to the Dakota County COVID-19 School Updates Page.

With the closing of schools due to COVID-19 it is our commitment to continue to serve our families in whatever capacity we can. We would like to extend an invitation to those families that may need support from our district-based food shelf.
