Close alert

The Southern Local School District is planning on feeding its kids through bussing a breakfast and lunch to drop-off points daily. This will start Monday, March 23 and run to the end of school closure on April 3 or beyond. Right now, plans are to deliver to Portland Elementary (Community Center) , across from the former Letart Falls Elementary, Syracuse Community Center (back of the building), Kerrs Run bus drop ( old water works) , Star Mill Park, the Community of Christ Church beside the Lebanon Township Garage, and the back of the Southern School at the kitchen. We are planning on 400 meals per day. All students of the Southern Local School District are eligible for this service.  Southern Local urges all of those who can to come to these sites.  If you absolutely cannot make it, please call us and we will make arrangements 740-949-4222. Times for distribution of food are tentatively set for 9-10:30. All parents should remain in their car and food will be taken to the car from the bus so to limit the amount of contact. This service will be provided by the Southern Local School District through a special version of the Seamless Summer Food program. Stay tuned for further details once things are finalized. Through various church groups and civic organizations, donations, school personnel, and volunteers along with Mrs. McNickle we were able to feed over a 100 kids last weekend. On another note, the Southern Local team has been working on the possibility lasting beyond April 3.  At this time, as we sort through the guidance, we will announce plans for school enrichment activities for students and how the continuation of the food program will work. We are all here for the kids.
