Duluth Public Schools: "leaning on each other and taking care"

The school buses showed up this morning, but they weren't there to take kids to school.

Instead, they were delivering breakfasts and lunches for Duluth school kids to over 70 locations, as they plan to do at least through March 27th.

Maybe it's something to think about that when the Governor issued the order to close public schools, one of the biggest concerns was the kids that might end up going hungry without the meals the school provides.

And even though he ruefully admits that, in different times, this is something they might have studied for months, Superintendent of Schools Bill Gronseth is pretty impressed with what the district and school staff was able to pull together in 48 hours.

ISD 709's Coronavirus Update Center is here.

The free breakfast and lunch drop-off schedule is available here.
