Cook County Schools to provide meals for students during closure

Cook County Schools will be providing breakfast and lunch for all ISD 166 students preschool through 12th grade beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020. There will be one delivery per day.

In order to receive food deliveries, the district must receive consent from families to deliver meals. This can be done by emailing, or by phone at 387-2271, extension 608, 602, or 609. Be prepared to share the names and ages of students, parent and family phone number, and the address for the delivery for Wednesday and Thursday. The school asks to email or call in school lunch requests by 3 pm today, March 17th. No meals will be delivered during spring break.

Delivery will be on the normal bus routes between 10:00 a.m. and noon on Wednesday and Thursday. Please be patient as we work to put these systems in place. Meals will also be available for pick up at the main doors between 10:00 a.m. and noon. Students may receive one set of meals per day.
