Superintendent Dan Walker said that he doesn’t know the specific times that meals will be provided at village schools, and that each site will be different. 
Walker says the district recommends students practice social distancing and common sense to keep safe distances from each other when picking up their meals. LKSD’s website recommends staying at least 6 feet apart. Walker also says that teachers and staff working at schools have been told to avoid interacting with students. The cafeterias will remain closed, so students should pick up their meals and take them home to eat.
