Here is the statement issued by Caddo Schools:

Our district takes the safety of our students and staff seriously and has agreed to only provide food services as long as the safety of participants could be guaranteed. With the growing rate and spread of COVID-19, we must take every precaution to protect our students and staff. Caddo urges all stakeholders to limit outside interactions and to heed the governor’s advisements.

The district will continue to assess conditions to determine when it is safe to resume food service. It is imperative for every entity to do its part to flatten the curve for the sake of our community.

Bossier Parish Schools will end the grab and go meals after Monday.

The Bossier statement says

All facets of the meal program were discussed and it was a difficult conversation. The issue is not whether feeding students is important. We all agree that it is. At the same time, the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana is rapidly rising and the safety of our food service employees and other staff members must also be considered. We must take every precaution to protect them.

After Monday, March 23 Bossier Schools will close all sites as well as administrative offices, until further notice as directed by the State of Louisiana.

Caddo Parish schools announced they will no longer serve grab-and-go meals effective tomorrow Monday, 23.
