No Internet? – Please let your advisory teacher know if you do not have internet access and will be needing a packet. Your packet will be available Monday.
No Computer or device? If you are going to need a Chromebook, you will need to communicate this and you the parent need to sign the form. If you cannot print out the form, you can send an email with your parental approval for your child to have a Chromebook.

FOOD SERVICE: TSD’s Food Service distributed about 50 meals today on the first day of this program, which follows similar rules to Free Summer Meals. FREE breakfast and/or lunch is available to anyone aged 1-18 in the community.
To eliminate confusion:
Families must signup online by midnight TONIGHT for tomorrow’s meal pickup. Those who know they will also want free meals on Friday can indicate that on the signup sheet, available on our website (https://tsd401.org/) or at this link: https://tinyurl.com/qr3n7nh
Drive-through pickup is between 11 am and 1 pm daily on the EAST side of the *new* Driggs Elementary, where the buses usually go. Our kitchen crew will bring pre-ordered meals right to the curb.
We are encouraging healthy children to come along with their parents in the car to pick up their food, to help ensure that meals for young ones are reaching them quickly. (Sick kids should always stay home.)
