Good afternoon District 549 families and residents,
Important information on our meals program will be mailed to homes today. Please be on the lookout for that, as we need information returned to us to plan accordingly.
Our team at the school has been working tirelessly that last 24 hours trying to make certain we are able to provide school meals (breakfast and lunch) for all children 18 and under during the time period Perham-Dent Schools are closed due to COVID-19. Each family will be provided one meal per child. Both breakfast and lunch can be given to families at once. Meals must be picked up by a parent, guardian or the student(s). Children do not need to be accompanied by an adult to receive food.
As of right now (subject to change), meals will be available for pick-up at the following sites, beginning Wednesday, March 18th:
Perham High School: Drive Up at Door #2 (Flag Pole) from 7 AM to 4 PM
St. Henry’s Area School: 11 AM to 1PM
St. Paul’s Lutheran School: 11 AM to 1PM
Wagon Wheel in Richville: 11 AM to 1PM
Ottertail Oasis in Ottertail City: 11 AM to 1PM
Dent Community Center: 11 AM to 1PM
Alano Building, Perham (west of town, off of Cty Hwy #34): 11 AM to 1PM
Home delivery will be available beginning Monday, March 23 for families that lack transportation or have medically fragile children. We will need a signed consent form for home delivery, so please be looking for that form tonight if you’re in that situation.
