With the recent return to remote-only learning, the curbside free meals program for all Dare County children 18 and younger will restart on Wednesday, November 18, per an emailed update from Dare County Schools (DCS) Superintendent, John Farrelly.
The Dare County Board of Education voted 6-1 Friday night to return all grades to virtual learning as COVID-19 cases and quarantines within the school community reached “a breaking point.”
Dare County students returned to classrooms on a hybrid schedule Oct. 26 and the first week went well, Farrelly said at the meeting. But COVID-19 impacts began the second week of school, and have resulted in a rash of COVID-19 cases among students and staff. All students will return to virtual learning this week, and school will remain remote until the semester ends on Jan. 15.
Contactless curbside meals can be picked up at the following schools Mondays thru Fridays each week:
- Cape Hatteras Elementary School: 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
- Manteo Elementary School: 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
- First Flight High School: 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
