There has been a lot of information released as it relates to Governor Jay Inslee’s decision to close all schools through April 24 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Evergreen Public Schools immediate goals are to ensure students and families have access to food starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17.
The following press release from Evergreen Public School Superintendent Mike Merlino outlines the districtwide distribution plan for free meals that starts tomorrow.
“Ongoing breakfast/lunch program (operating Monday-Friday):
Tomorrow, we are rolling out a districtwide breakfast/lunch program with food available for any school age child/student. As we previously announced, the following schools will be open for breakfast/lunch “grab and go” meals from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.:
Burton Elementary (14015 NE 28th St.)
Cascade Middle School (13900 NE 18th St.)
Covington Middle School (11200 NE Rosewood Ave.)

In addition, we will deliver meals using school buses operating on normal morning elementary routes throughout the district. Students of all ages (not just elementary) may wait at the elementary regular time/bus stop, and the bus will stop to deliver both breakfast and lunch at the same time. Click here to find a convenient bus stop. We will also operate normal morning Special Needs routes. A household member will need to be available to come out to the bus and collect the meals.

From 8:30am – 9:30am:
Burnt Bridge Creek Elementary (14619 NE 49th St.)
