Community Eligibility Provision Schools

Grab and Go Lunches

The 2020-2021 school year is scheduled to begin with a hybrid model in which students rotate between in-person and distance learning to limit the number of students in school buildings and allow for social distancing.

During distance learning, APS will provide grab and go lunches at no charge to students who qualify or who attend any of the Community Eligibility Provision Schools. Distribution times and sites are yet to be determined.
