FREE MEAL SERVICES

As the Covid-19 outbreak expands across our community and our state, the Starkville Oktibbeha School District is adjusting our meal service schedule to increase number of meals provided to our students and decrease risk of exposure for our employees. 

Beginning Monday, April 6, we will offer meal service on Mondays and Wednesdays ONLY.  Four meals which include two breakfast servings and two lunch servings will be provided in each grab n go pack.  The District will evaluate participation in our meal service as we plan and prepare for future weeks of operation. 

The health and safety of our employees, students and families is our first priority always, and we continue to closely monitor our District’s ability to provide a safe working environment  for our employees.   

Please be mindful of social distancing when picking up your meals and maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others.
