As of today, the Clark County School District (CCSD) will be providing free school meals to all children 2 - 18 years of age. CCSD is able to extend the meals to all children after the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved a waiver that CCSD requested.
Students may pick up meals at any food site. A student’s parent/guardian may also pick up meals for students without the child present during the meal pickup.
Please see the updated information below for frequently asked questions on how to pick up meals during full-time distance education now that CCSD has received a waiver from the USDA.
