    Changes Coming to Grab and Go Meal Program

    As we continue the transition to Hybrid Learning and bring in more of our in-person learning students, we need to make adjustments to our Grab and Go Meal Program. Our Transportation Team was an instrumental part of staffing our Meal Program and bringing the meals to the satellite locations. Now they are needed back in their primary role transporting Woodland students. Grab and Go Meals will still be available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday when school is in session, but the times and locations will need to be adjusted so that our drivers and buses are available to transport students.

    • TIME CHANGE: Starting Monday, March 8, Grab and Go Meals will be available from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday through March 15.
    • REMINDER: Starting Monday, March 29, Grab and Go Meals will only be available at Woodland Middle School from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. , Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The satellite locations will be closed after Spring Break.

    Students attending school in-person will have breakfast and lunch available while they are at school. 

    Student meals will continue to be at no cost to the family for the remainder of school year 2020-2021.


    Pick up location:

    Woodland Middle School – 7000 W Washington St, Gurnee
