The Oracle School District breakfasts will continue to be distributed from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM in front of the school office. Families will have the option to also pick-up lunch for their child at that time. This will allow families to stay home each afternoon and not need to return to the school to collect lunches. They will not distribute meals a second time each day from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM. They will also be delivering free breakfast and lunch to children at each Mountain Vista PreK-8 School bus stops. Like meal distribution in front of the school office, they will provide children with the option of collecting both breakfast and lunch at the same time. School buses will arrive at each bus stop approximately one hour later than the normal morning pick-up time. For example, if a child’s normal morning bus pick-up time is 7:00 AM, the school bus delivering meals would arrive at 8:00 AM, give or take a few minutes as the distribution of meals will take a little longer than a normal pick-up for students. See the full School Closure update from 4/2/2020 here.
