Good Morning Hawks Families:
As we come to the close of this school year, we acknowledge that this is not how we would have anticipated it ending. However, I am so proud of each one of our students and the resiliency shown in the outstanding work effort during NTI. This year has been amazing and our students have grown beyond measure. Parents, thank you so much for your partnership this year! We couldn't have accomplished what we have without you and your support. To our 8th grade parents, thank you for allowing us to participate in your students' middle school experience. ONCE A HAWK, ALWAYS A HAWK!

School lunch information:
Parents and Students,
In order to comply with recommendations from health experts the district is providing breakfast and lunch deliveries to established pick-up points daily for Boone County students. There will no longer be meals picked up at the schools.
Please remember, ALL students that come to a location will be served a meal. This is not for just students that are on free and reduced lunch programs. . We will monitor the food distribution over the coming days to determine the use or lack of use of sites and adjust accordingly. Updated meal delivery pick-up locations will be posted on the school website under Daily Announcements.
A child can be served at any location in the district. For example, my child attends Ockerman MS but is staying with a grandparent in Hebron. This child can obtain their meal at any food delivery location in the district. Please review all three districts to ensure you are selecting the closest pick-up point to your residence.
It is very helpful if the families also call ahead to the school of the location they will be getting their meal from to assist in ensuring there are ample meals prepared.

The food stops currently being utilized to provide food for our students will have additional meals on Thursday (April 2nd) and Friday (April 3rd). We will provide additional meals on these days in effort to meet the nutritional needs of our students over Boone County Schools’ spring break.
Please continue to call your school’s food manager to reserve your daily meal so we can provide the accurate amount of meals at each stop. Boone County Schools will NOT transport food to the community during the week of spring break, (April 6th-10th). Additional meals will be provided on Thursday and Friday in effort to support food needs during our spring break.
