Grab and Go Meal Bags

Grab and Go Food Bags:

Grab and Go breakfast and lunch items will be available for students whose parents have filled a request survey. Prebagged breakfast and lunch items will be available for pick up at Firelands Elementary School. Bags will contain food for multiple days.


Pick up of the Grab and Go items will be organized the same as child pick up at the elementary school. Cars enter the Firelands High School parking lot and will pass by the main doors. They will then proceed toward the bus garage.


New pick up procedure for Grab & Go meals:

=         Stay on the outside of the orange cones, further away from the building

=         Stop at the kitchen door and let them know the names of your child/children

=         Pull forward beyond the double doors

=         Your meals will be placed on the ground to avoid contaminating a surface

=         Once the food has been placed and the food runner is away from the area, you may exit your vehicle and load your bags

=         We appreciate your understanding as we must protect us all


Please know that the Grab and Go Bag survey must be completed Friday by 9:00 am prior to pick up, If you have completed the survey you will automatically be registered to receive Grab and Go Bags for the immediate future.
