MISS YOU ALL!
Families, we are saddened beyond belief. We have been given a heads-up that Gov. Edwards plans on announcing the closure of school buildings for the remainder of the school year tomorrow (Tuesday). After the official statement is made, we should have more details. No worries! We are currently working on more creative ways to provide instruction to your children through the use of technology. We will keep you updated.
MEALS TO YOU UPDATE
More than 15,000 Livingston Parish students should soon receive free, shelf-stable meals delivered to their doorsteps as part of the “Meals to You” program that local school officials partnered with to assist needy families across the parish in receiving food during the COVID-19 “stay-at-home” period.
“We have verified the applications of 15,134 students,” Purvis said, noting that qualified applicants must be 18 years or younger and enrolled in Livingston Parish Public Schools.
“We have submitted those verifications to ‘Meals to You,’ and we are awaiting word on when the food shipments will begin,” Purvis said, noting that program coordinators have said they will send email notifications to parents regarding confirmation of their enrollment verification before scheduling shipments.
Livingston Parish Public Schools partnered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Baylor University to provide food and nutrition to students during the time that schools are closed because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The program, “Meals-to-You,” provides for meals to be delivered to the doorsteps of students who qualify for the program.
“We know that ‘Meals to You’ is working with numerous districts throughout the United States to provide emergency meals that adhere to the guidelines and regulations of the USDA. It’s quite an undertaking, but we continue to make ourselves available to assist them in any way we can to ensure our students receive assistance. But at this point, the district has limited ability to accelerate the program further,” Purvis said.
Purvis said school officials worked over the weekend to provide verification of the applications, electronically delivering the completed list at 3 a.m. today.
She noted that a total of 16,616 online applications were submitted. Of that count, 1,354 were duplicates. Another 128 applications were denied because they did not meet the qualifications.
“Of the 128 applicants that were denied, most were found to not have a LPPS student living their household,” Purvis said.
“Our Child Nutrition Department has worked around the clock since the governor first declared a ‘stay-at-home’ order to figure out ways to get food to our students. They have made order, checked forms, verified information and then double checked everything to get it right,” Superintendent Joe Murphy said.
“We know this is a critical service for so many of our families,” he said.
