The Livingston Parish School Board announced Monday its plans to provide free meals and remote instruction for its students during school closures caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Superintendent Joe Murphy said the district will begin a free meal pick-up service Wednesday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. for all Livingston Parish children under the age of 18. Children do not need to be present when meals are picked up, nor do the children have to be enrolled in a Livingston Parish public school.
Both breakfasts and lunches will be available at pick-up times, and meals will meet USDA nutritional requirements, Murphy said.
Other pickup dates are scheduled for Monday, March 23 and Wednesday, March 25. The district will continue having two pick-up days per week pending student participation, according to Murphy.
