East Lansing Public School Updated Meal Distribution Plan - EFFECTIVE MARCH 24, 2020

Good morning ELPS staff and community,

Yesterday’s Stay Home, Stay Safe order by Governor Whitmer has brought about a few changes and updates I’d like to share with you.

1. To comply with the guidance and restrictions in Executive Order 2020-21, we are adjusting our meal distribution plan as follows:

a. Meal distribution will occur once a week – every Thursday from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m.

b. Meal distribution will be pick-up/drive-thru at East Lansing High School – please enter by the tennis courts and follow the road around to the back of the high school – food will be passed out from the loading dock area. We’ll have someone out to direct you that way – then follow the cones.

c. You may pick up a week’s worth of meals at this time for any child 18 & under and for young adults with special needs age 26 & under.

d. Please bring a box or laundry basket to collect your meals – when you pull up, please give us the number of students and pop your trunk (if possible) so that we can put the milk and meals in your box or laundry basket.

e. We encourage you to work with neighbors, family or friends and send as few people as possible to pick up meals. We will give meals for multiple families to drivers.

f. If you do not have someone who can pick up meals for you, please email me at dori.leyko@elps.us or call me at (517) 333-7426 and provide your name, number of children in your home and your address. I will get back with you regarding delivery arrangements. (Email is preferred if possible.)

g. There will be no meal distribution tomorrow (Wednesday, March 25). This new process will begin this Thursday, March 26.

2. This Stay Home, Stay Safe order expires at midnight on April 13, 2020. That means that the earliest we may return to school is Tuesday, April 14. Stay tuned for updated information on this topic.

Thank you and take care – Dori Leyko, Superintendent
