Beginning Nov. 1, all children 18 and under or their parent/guardian can pick up free curbside meals at Ashley Elementary School only. The district has decided to consolidate this service to one location due to the low level of participation.

Free curbside lunch will be available at Ashley Elementary from 12:30 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on Friday.

Curbside meals are only offered on days when school is in session. To order a free curbside meal, complete the form at https://www.abc2data.com/surveys/grabngo_request.
