Meal program to continue throughout school closures

The Douglas County School District will remain closed to in-person learning through April 30 after Gov. Jared Polis issued an executive order on April 1 mandating all public and private schools extend building closures in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. Polis recently said it is unlikely students will return to Colorado schools at all this spring.

The district first announced in mid-March it would remain closed after its regularly scheduled spring break, which ran from March 16-20, and transition to remote education on March 23. Plans to reopen by March 30 were quickly dashed when the governor issued a similar executive order requiring schools to close through April 17.

Under the latest order, remote education will continue through the end of April. All district buildings and facilities — schools, playgrounds, athletic fields and so on — are closed as well.

The district began offering free lunch and breakfast to any child 18 or younger on March 23. That will continue through April 30. Additional pick-up locations will be added the week of April 6.
