Meal services will be provided at select schools that are not included in the need-based Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and USDA programs.
- These meals are intended for children in need of meals during the unanticipated school closings, typically those who participate in the school lunch program based on need.
- Meals will be provided through a walk-up and drive-thru service in the parent drop off loop at the participating schools.
- The meals will be provided to children 18 years or younger. Children must be present to receive meals.
- Children may receive meals at the nearest participating school, even if it is not where they attend school. This eliminates the need for families to drive to multiple schools.
- Each day, lunch for that day and breakfast for the next day will be provided at the same time.
- All sites will operate from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., March 23 – 27.

School District News
Update from Superintendent Forson, April 1
Dear SJCSD Parents and Guardians,
Today we faced additional challenges with connectivity to Schoology. I share this frustration with you and assure you that we are working with the vendor to solve these issues. In the meantime, I encourage you and your child to reach out to his/her teacher via email. As I wrote yesterday, patience and flexibility are paramount. We will keep getting better.
Meal service will continue at designated school and community sites until further notice. This is an essential service offered to children 18 years or younger in need of breakfast and lunch while we are closed. In the last few days there have been posts on social media encouraging others to visit specific schools to receive these meals. Some of these posts encourage community members with children to drive through more than once to prevent the service from ceasing and preserve job functions at these sites.
While we want families who need the meals to receive them for their children, prompting the community to show up just to get meals puts a strain on distribution. It prevents us from allocating funding, efforts and resources where the need is greater. For updated information on meal service, visit https://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/blog/mealservice/.
Today Governor DeSantis issued an executive order to stay at home except for individuals who are essential employees providing essential community services as defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. In this guidance, "educators supporting public and private K-12 schools, colleges, and universities for purposes of facilitating distance learning or performing other essential functions" is included in the essential critical infrastructure workforce. We are continuing to review and define essential staff through job functions while promoting a work at home model for employees who can.
I appreciate your commitment to your child's education. I value the support and trust you have placed in the St. Johns County School District to instruct your children while we continue to learn in this new environment.
