UINTA COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT #1 FOOD ASSISTANCE
To support our children’s health and nutrition within our community, UCSD #1 has set up five (5) sites where families can come pick up breakfast & lunch sack meals. The locations for pickup are as follows: North Evanston Elementary, Clark Elementary, Evanston Middle School, Davis Middle School, and Horizon Jr/Sr High.
Pickup times will be from 8:30 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. Monday through Friday. For your convenience, stop by one of the schools, and pick up both a breakfast and lunch grab and go bag. This meal will be available to all children ages 18 and under in our community. The child must be present to receive the grab and go bag. This is not an income-based program, all children are welcome. There will be no charge for these meals.
We hope that this program will support our children within the community. Please limit your participation if you or your children are showing any signs of fever, coughing, or other flu like symptoms. This will help prevent the spread of illness throughout our community, as our goal is to get our children back to school as soon as safely possible.
Should you have any questions, please contact Linda Martin, Food Service Director, at 307-789-7571.
UINTA COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT #4 CLOSURES
UCSD #4 schools and facilities will be closed through at least Sunday, April 5th, 2020.
We will communicate with families as soon as we have the necessary information to make future decisions.
UINTA COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT #4 FOOD ASSISTANCE
During the school closure Uinta 4 will continue to serve lunch using a grab and go sack lunch approach. Our goal is to target those students enrolled in Uinta 4 schools who rely on the school’s free and reduced lunch program. Sack lunches will be prepared at the school and distributed to families curbside. Sack lunches will be available starting Tuesday, March 24th from 11:00 12:30 from the bus loop at the K-8 building. Parents should enter the bus loop and stop behind the car in front of you. You will then proceed through the bus loop to the distribution stand where you may pick up a lunch for each of your school children. Please be patient and proceed through the loop in a line. We anticipate it will move quite quickly and efficiently.
If you have any questions regarding lunch service during this time please call the district office at 307-782-3377.
