Spring Break
Tomorrow, Friday, is an adjusted dismissal day preceding Spring Break. For adjusted dismissal schedules please click HERE and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Please remember that your preordered Spring Break meals must be picked up tomorrow between 9 a.m. – noon. There is no food service during Spring Break.

Spring Break is April 5 – 9 and schools are back in session Monday, April 12.

In this letter:

  • Food services after Spring Break
  • Register for An Achievable Dream Academy information sessions
  • Work for VBCPS

Food services after Spring Break
Beginning Friday, April 16, food services will move to a four-day meal pickup model. The Friday pickup will include breakfast, lunch and dinner for Friday through Monday, much like the holiday service model we’ve used this past year. This means there will be no bagged meal pickup service on Mondays as of April 19 through the end of the school year. This decision is based on feedback received from the community and little participation in the Monday pickup service.

Again, as of April 19, meals for virtual students will be served via the drive by/pickup model, with bagged meals provided Tuesday–Friday, 10:30 a.m.- 1:30 p.m. The Friday bag will also contain food for Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Students in face-to-face instruction may also pick up weekend meals through the drive by/pickup model.

If a different pickup time is needed, please contact the cafeteria manager at your child’s school to make other arrangements.

Register for Achievable Dream Academy information sessions
