WASD alters meal program hours, not food

The Williamsport Area School District has announced that, beginning Monday, the meal assistance program will only operate from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Mondays and Wednesdays.

To ensure students receive the same amount of food, Monday’s bagged meals will include two breakfasts and two lunches and Wednesday’s bags will include three breakfasts and three lunches.

According to a news release, the move was made in order to reduce daily face-to-face interaction in light of the growing number of COVID-19 cases across the state and to further limit the number of employees in our buildings.
