Converse County School Closure
CCSD #1 recognizes that our students and parents come to rely on our Nutrition Services Department to provide their child the very best in nutritional meals. To meet the needs of our students during the COVID-19 school closure, CCSD#1 will be offering Grab-n-Go breakfast/lunch combo bags.
Beginning Tuesday, March 24 CCSD#1 Nutrition Services Department will provide FREE OF CHARGE “Grab-n-Go” Breakfast and Lunch in one combined sack every day, to any student that is enrolled in the school district! We have combined the meals into one bag to minimize exposure to staff, students and parents. Each child can get one bag per day! All meals will meet the National School Lunch Program nutritional requirements.
PRE-ORDER YOUR MEALS
We are STRONGLY encouraging parents to preorder your meals by going to the following link at: https://forms.gle/YsNzQFudgW9povww8 We will post this link on the CCSD#1 website at converse1schools.org, Converse County School District #1 Nutrition Services Facebook page, all school Facebook pages, and other social media sites for parent access to sign up. This will help us determine how many Grab-no-Go meals to prepare on any given day, and will expedite this process. However, if you do not preorder your meals you WILL NOT BE TURNED AWAY, just understand you may have to wait a little longer. This will also help us when it comes time to order more product.
MEAL PICKUP SITES
The meals can be picked up at three locations in their school’s parent drop off or bus loop locations:
Douglas Primary School (The loop in front of the gym)
Douglas Upper Elementary School (Bus loop west side of the building)
Douglas Middle School (East side of building by tennis courts/ gym doors)
Pickup times are from 7:00 AM—1:00 PM, Monday-Friday.
For homebound children/families, we will offer a delivery service through our CCSD#1 Transportation Department. Please fill out the pre-order form 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE and check the option for meal delivery to your door. Your address and phone number will be needed for this service. CCSD#1 bus drivers will deliver the order to the address given on the form during the hours of 7:00 AM—1:00 PM. They will drop off the meals, ring or knock on the door and leave. This is to minimize exposure. If you do not have access to a computer and want to be added to the delivery service, please call CCSD#1 Transportation Department at (307) 358-4543 and visit with Kathleen.

In response to rapidly developing COVID-19 concerns, new hours will be set aside for senior citizens 60+ and the immunocompromised to shop ahead of the general public. Stores will be open to the general public after the hours conclude. Please share these new hours widely so all shoppers might follow them.
