“Will LPS provide a breakfast/lunch for the students who are remote learning from home?


Yes, LPS is planning food distribution sites for remote learners only. These sites will run once per week at set locations, times and dates.

LPS leaders said that families will need to get to the food pick up sites on their own.

Whether you’re on free, reduced or full-pay status, meals will be charged exactly as they are during in-person school.
