Mercer County Schools will start delivering meals to students via bus route

PRINCETON, WV (WOAY) – In an effort to maximize the number of students who are being served lunch and breakfast, Mercer County Schools will begin delivering meals on bus routes on Thursday, March 19th. Parents should expect buses to arrive at their morning bus stops 4 hours after the normal pick up time.  For example, if the bus normally arrives at 7:10 am, the bus delivering meals should be expected at 11:10 am.  If your child currently receives a special diet as part of their health care plan, please notify the staff members who are delivering. In addition, for the safety of our youngest students we request that a parent or guardian be at the bus stop with our PreK through 3rd grade students.  Keep in mind, meals may be picked up by parent or guardian. Students do not have to be present.

In addition to bus delivery meals may continue to be picked up at all school locations between the hours of 11:00 am to 12:30 pm.

As you have previously been made aware parents and students have a choice to receive their academic assignments digitally or in a printed format.  Digital assignments will be available beginning Thursday, March 19.  Printed assignments and instructional materials will be available in packets and ready for parent pick-up at each school site on Friday, March 20, during regular school hours.

Students who need to return completed assignments may do so on any school day by returning materials to the staff delivering meals at their bus stops during meal drop-off times.  For additional options on how to return completed assignments contact your child’s school.
