Community Resources During The Summer Months

Summer school meal pick-up: Free meals will continue to be available to all students during summer school, including students not participating in programming. Meal bags will be available weekly starting June 24 and continuing through August 5. Meals will be available for curbside pick-up on Thursdays from 10:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. at Irondale High School (2425 Long Lake Rd, New Brighton).

Meals will be FREE for all students. Families and students will not need to provide a name or PIN number to pick up the meals. Masks are encouraged for those picking up meals, even while in their vehicle. This keeps the nutrition services staff safe as they serve the meals. For more information, visit our website.

Mental Health Support
If you or a member of your family need mental health support during the summer, these resources may be helpful. Seeking mental health services is vital to improving the physical and psychological safety of our students and school, as well as academic performance and problem-solving skills. Please take care of yourselves and each other.
