Prince of Peace Catholic Schools and Southwestern Jefferson County Consolidated School Corporation have announced their plans for feeding students during the three-week school closure.

The two school corporations are among five in the county shutting down and switching to online classes or take-home work for almost a month to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 as well as Trimble County and Carroll County in Kentucky. Schools have had to come up with solutions to meet the needs of students on free or reduced lunch who count on them for meals throughout the week.

Southwestern announced Wednesday it was working on a plan that would take effect March 30 and provide free breakfast and lunch for students age 18 and younger.

Parents are asked to call one of three numbers — 812-866-6251, 812-866-6253 or 812-866-1235 — today or Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to provide names of children needing meals, their bus number if applicable, number of meals requested daily Monday through Friday and whether they can pick meals up from a designated location or need delivery.

Information on pick-up times and locations as well as other details will be released next week, Superintendent Jeff Bates said in the release.

Prince of Peace families were asked to call Pope John Elementary by 3 p.m. Tuesday to reserve three days worth of breakfasts and lunch for pickup at the back entrance of the school. Payment options are the same as when students eat at school, President Phil Kahn said in the announcement.
