The School District of La Crosse has finalized its plan of providing meals to students while schools are closed due to COVID-19.

Starting tomorrow, March 19, a take-home breakfast and lunch will be provided in pre-packaged paper bags at each site, once per day.

Meals will be distributed at the sites below to children from a GO Riteway school bus stationed at each location.

The district encourages social distancing and handwashing before eating the meals.
