1. Meal Plan Message – Free Meal Delivery in Rural Areas

Thanks to our support staff (educational aides, cafeteria workers, and bus drivers), the Hardin Northern cafeteria will be open from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. daily to serve FREE breakfast and lunch to any student as a grab and go.  There are also lunches available 11:30 – 12:30 daily at the corner of Washington and Main Streets in Dunkirk.  Students and families that are unable to pick up lunches at either location may call the school to make arrangements for delivery of meals to their homes in rural locations.

  1. Continuing Education Process – GRIT

A note to parents and our community that the district is doing its best to provide as high a quality of education as we can, under the circumstances of this crisis situation.  As superintendent I have charged our staff (and they have responded) to maintain contact with, and meet the individual needs of every child / student in our district.  We are asking that you bear with us in this transition to distance learning.  We will make mistakes, we will learn from those mistakes to make adjustments that improve learning outcomes.  That is GRIT. Try something, see what works and what does not work (learn), and show improvement.  Our teachers and students are demonstrating this every day and I am extremely proud of all of their effort.
