While the Crockett County School System, Bells City School and Alamo City School continue to provide food assistance to students, additional support was added this week.
The Crockett County School System partnered with Mid-South Food Bank to deliver a 14-day supply of nonperishable food items to 250 Crockett County Families this week.
The food boxes were made available for pick-up at Gadsden Elementary, Maury City Elementary, Bells Elementary, Alamo City and Friendship Elementary schools.
Essential personal hygiene items were made available to families who need those items as well during this difficult time.
Crockett County School System understands the students being out of school puts a strain on many families and is doing everything possible to help ease that burden as much as possible.
As of Monday, March 30, all schools will change their times for the breakfast and lunch school-feeding program.
Pick-up times will be Monday and Thursday only, from 4 to 6 p.m.
Monday pick-up will include three breakfast meals and three lunch meals.
Thursday pick-up will include four breakfast meals and four lunch meals.
This decision was made to lessen risk to exposure. Meals remain available for all children under 18.
The school systems are working diligently to devise an education plan for students. Information is expected to be available for parents on Wednesday, April 1.
