Ensuring Meal Service Following Positive COVID-19 Test
Huntsville City Schools (HCS) is ensuring students will be able to continue receiving free meals after an individual associated with Lakewood Elementary tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
After learning of the positive test late Monday night, the HCS Facilities team immediately went to Lakewood to sanitize the facility before anyone re-entered campus in order to mitigate risk. The HCS Health Services Department determined individuals set to be on campus Tuesday, including the staff responsible for the Summer Meal Service Program, were not exposed to the impacted individual.
The Summer Meal Service Program will continue on Tuesday, July 28, 2020, to ensure children 18 and under continue to have access to free healthy meals.
Meals are served from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Children receive breakfasts and lunches served together. Social distancing will be practiced. Students may walk or ride with their families to receive meals.
Additionally, HCS invites families to visit the district’s other meal service site at Chaffee Elementary located at 7900 Whittier Road.
