"Governor Doug Ducey and Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman announced Thursday afternoon that by August 7th the Arizona Department of Health Services will develop and release public health benchmarks for the safe return of in-person, teacher-led classroom instruction," read the email. "We continue to communicate with state and county health officials and the Governor’s office as we prepare for the return of in-person instruction."
When virtual learning begins, the district's curbside meal program will transition to the traditional National School Lunch Program, according to the district.
Enrolled Chandler USD students will still be able to pick up meals curbside at select sites. Students who have qualified for free or reduced meals will continue to eat free, and paying students will receive a five-day meal bundle for a discounted price of $23, according to the district.
To qualify for free or reduced meals, complete an application at www.myschoolapps.com.
