Dear Winnebago Public Schools Community:

I am writing to you because we value the health and well-being of our students, and families.

This is an update regarding the breakfast and lunch deliveries while the school is closed.

There is also a statement regarding the Academy Field trips that were scheduled later this

school year.

The food service staff and those helping deliver have been and will continue to work hard to

ensure the children get breakfast and lunch. There have been some glitches along the way.

We will continue to iron the glitches out. Starting next week and through the remainder of the

time we are serving the meals as follows: We will be delivering 2 times on Mondays and 1

time on Tuesday –Friday. Monday – Thursday lunch delivery will include the next day’s

breakfast. On Fridays we will only deliver lunch because we will deliver breakfast on

Mondays. Many parents have let us know that they want meals for the remainder of the year.

We hope to cut down on call ins. This should help us have a more accurate count. Delivery

times will start at 9:00 on Mondays for the breakfast and at 11:00. Lunch Delivery could take

1½ to 2 hours.

Also remember that due to the Easter Holiday, Lunch will only be delivered on Thursday, April

9, No delivery on Friday, April 10 or Monday, April 13 and there will be 2 deliveries on

Tuesday, April 14.

Due to the ongoing closing of school and shutdowns of events throughout the nation during

this COVID-19 Pandemic, the Academy field trips scheduled for this school year will be

postponed until the 2020-2021 school year.

Sincerely,

Dan Fehringer, Superintendent
