WATERLOO — Academic and meal supports will be available from the Waterloo Community Schools starting Monday while classes are suspended and buildings are closed.
All schools will briefly reopen from 2 to 7 p.m. Wednesday to allow students to retrieve essential items like medication and Chromebooks.
“We are in the process of sanitizing our buildings, so access should be quick and targeted to retrieve only the items you need,” said a statement from the district. “If you need to get your child’s medication, an authorized adult must sign for it. It cannot be given to children.”
District educators are organizing links to activities and lessons by grade level and subject that will be available between Monday and April 10. Teachers won’t be assigning or grading work, but they will check their email and be available to support student learning. Waterloo Schools asks parents to have their children read daily or read to them.
Paper copies of activities or lessons will be available for younger children at the elementary schools. Families can pick them up during “grab-n-go” meal distributions.
Starting Monday, meals will be available weekdays at any district elementary schools for children 18 and younger. There is no need to sign up, but meals can only be provided to children.
“Regardless of the school your child attends, you may simple drive or walk up with your children to any of the elementary school front entrances,” the district statement said.
Pick up times are:
- 9-10 a.m. – Cunningham, Kingsley and Orange.
- 10-11 a.m. – Kittrell, Highland.
- 11 a.m.-noon – Becker and Lou Henry.
- Noon-1 p.m. – Irving, Lincoln and Poyner.
- 9 a.m.-noon – Education Service Center, 1516 Washington St.
