Limited Transporation for Free Breakfast and Lunch
Students and Families,
As you are very aware over the past few weeks, many things have changed within our community. Not only are we having school at home, but we are limited to where we can go and who we can see. All of this has been extremely challenging for most people; however, it is the only way we currently have to keep our families and communities healthy as we battle COVID-19.
Experts around the world are working to learn more about this new virus and develop medications for treatment. Currently, there is NO medication to prevent or cure COVID-19. This is why we have resorted to lifestyle changes. These changes can help slow the spread of the virus within our community. By slowing the spread of this virus, this allows experts around the world more time to learn about COVID-19, and it reduces the chance of our hospitals being bombarded with sick patients. If we can slow the spread of the virus, then hopefully patients can receive the care they need from the hospitals as they get sick.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has made recommendations that we all can do within our community to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Remember that we are a part of the same community, and we are all working together to make it the best it can be and safe for each other. We are all in this together!
If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to reach out. Take care of yourselves and your families.
