Johnson County School Closure
In an effort to make sure students will be receiving their meals, JCSD1 will provide a lunch for any school-aged student K-12 during the time of the closure March 16-April 3. Meals will be a grab-and-go bagged lunch that can be picked up Monday-Friday between 11:00 AM—1:00 PM in the drop-off lane of Meadowlark Elementary for Buffalo students and at the back door by the playground for Kaycee students. In order to have enough meals prepared, please contact Ricci Sanders at 307-620-9206 for Buffalo and Kaycee students.
If you need a meal for your children and are unable to get to the designated meal locations, please contact Ricci Sanders so arrangements can be made to get meals to your family and location. We are working with Johnson County Friends Feeding Friends and the Bread of Life food pantry to work out details for students who also need a breakfast. Details for this will follow.
