Lubbock ISD offers meals, support for students during COVID-19 closure

LUBBOCK -

News release from Lubbock ISD:

The Lubbock ISD family has quickly developed plans to continue supporting the more 27,000 students and families who call our campuses home.

Plans were in place to prepare for remote instruction before Governor Abbott’s announcement this week made closure official. All students in second- through 12th-grade were assigned a Chromebook to take home before spring break. The Lubbock ISD Curriculum and Instruction team, in partnership with Technology Services, has developed resources and lessons housed at www.LubbockISD.org/learnonline to be used in conjunction with the many digital tools students regularly use in the classroom. Teachers will spend next week in professional development to learn more about best practices for delivering instruction in this unique environment. Special Services staff is also preparing for adapted delivery of support services while students are at home.

In partnership with our transportation and food service providers, we are fortunate to have the ability to offer curbside pickup and school bus distribution of free meals for all children 18 and under during our school closure.

Beginning Monday, March 23, curbside pickup will be available at 16 Lubbock ISD campuses Monday through Friday, from 12 - 1:30 p.m..

School bus meal distribution will also begin on Monday, March 23, with 20 buses delivering food across the city of Lubbock. Routes will begin at 12 p.m. and run until 1:30 p.m. in order of their regular stops. The bus numbers have not changed from their regular routes, so students who normally ride the bus will be familiar with the bus numbers.

An interactive map is included on our website at www.LubbockISD.org/healthupdates for all families to view the campus and school bus distribution sites near their location. Families and members of the Lubbock community are encouraged to visit www.LubbockISD.org for all updated information related to school closure.
