Subject: Winn Schools To End Grab —and- Go Meals
Good Morning Parents
Yesterday, following the Governor’s stay-at-home order, a conference call was held with the Governor’s Office, the LDOE, and school superintendants regarding the continuation of the school serving sites
All facets of the meal program were discussed and it was a difficult conversation. The issue is not whether feeding students is important. We all agree that it is. At the same time, the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana is rapidly rising and the safety of our food service employees and other staff members must also be considered. We must take every precaution to protect our community.
Regrettfully Winn will suspend its food service program after Monday, March 23 and close all sites, as well as administrative offices, until further notice. We urge everyone to heed the Governor’s orders and take every precaution to keep their family safe.

Date: March 13, 2020
Per the directives issued by the Governor of the State of Louisiana this afternoon, in accordance from the Center for Disease Control, all public schools will be closed beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 until April 13, 2020. Additionally, the State of Louisiana has banned public gatherings of more than 250 persons for that same time period. Winn Parish Schools will, therefore, be closed in accordance with that order. The Winn Parish School System will use the automated call and messaging system and the webpage, www.winnpsb.org , to disseminate any further information as the situation develops.
Winn Parish School System is working to provide its students with academic resources and meals for the period of time our schools are closed. We are posting a schedule of dates, pick-up times, and meal sites for breakfast and lunch. A link for academic resources is posted.
The Winn Parish School System will ensure higher academic achievement for all students in a safe and caring environment that promotes family and community involvement in order to prepare students to be effective citizens in a global market.
The vision of the Winn Parish School System is to promote life-long learning for all!
