BREAKFAST AND LUNCH DELIVERY DURING SCHOOL CLOSURE - MARCH 16, 2020

Hoke County Schools will continue to provide breakfast and lunch to our students at no charge from March 17 through March 27.

School buses will be used to deliver meals.

Any Hoke County child between the ages of 2-18 may pick up a breakfast/lunch package at the bus stop closest to their home.

If you have a question about which bus stop your child should go to for meals, please contact your child’s school.

Buses will begin their delivery routes at approximately 9:30 am. It is difficult to estimate what time the bus will be at your stop. We encourage parents and students to watch for their bus. We ask parents to please be patient as we work on making this process as efficient as possible.

All meals will be prepared in the school cafeteria and transported in temperature-controlled containers. All health and sanitation guidelines will be followed.

What is Coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that usually cause mild respiratory illnesses such as the common cold. This strain of the virus, COVID-19 is a disease caused by a new coronavirus that was not identified in humans before December 2019. Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. It takes 2 to 14 days after a person gets the virus in their body to become ill. COVID-19 is spread from person to person via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how flu and other respiratory pathogens spread. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. With most respiratory viruses, people are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).
