Based on a review of existing meal locations and parent feedback, Arlington Public Schools added an additional meal distribution site at Pioneer Elementary which began serving meals on Monday, April 13. This brings the total meal distribution sites to 18 throughout the school district’s service area.
“This new meal site will provide meals to students in the Gleneagle area of Arlington,” said Brian Lewis, Executive Director of Operations. “There were some concerns among families about having to cross busy Highway 9 to the high school meal distribution site. It made a lot of sense to add a site to this neighborhood.”
Meals at Presidents Elementary and Arlington High School can be picked up between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch meals can be picked up at the mobile locations below between 9:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m.
