Dear New Bedford Academy families,
Hello – I hope you all are doing well and staying safe and healthy. There are opportunities in our townships to grab some breakfast and lunch for your kids during this mandated shelter-in-place. New Bedford and the community have coordinated local resources for food drive-thru sites that will assist people all across the township.
There is currently food “drive-thru” service for families who need it during this mandated closure. All children 18 and under, as well as special education students under the age of 26, are eligible for these free meals. Students do not need to be enrolled in local schools or at pick-up sites to receive these federally funded benefits.
A free, boxed lunch will be provided, along with breakfast for the next day, in each pack. These will be cold meals consisting of:
Breakfast: fruit, whole grain item (such as cereal or muffin), & milk
Lunch: fruit, vegetable, whole grain item, milk, meat/meat alternative
Local Pickup Locations
Monroe Road Elementary School
Bedford High School
10:30 am – 12:30 pm: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays
4:00 – 6:00 pm: Wednesdays
If alternative pickup times need to be arranged, please contact the Food Service Department at 734-850-6127.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE ENROLLED IN THE PICK-UP SITE SCHOOLS OR EVEN BEDFORD PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO PARTICIPATE IN FEDERALLY FUNDED DRIVE-THRU FOOD SITES. No ID is required. Just drive up, grab and go. No questions will be asked.
We are working hard to continue to provide education for your students. Teachers have set up web pages on our site for those of you who have access at home. For those of you who don’t, teachers have created items that will be mailed from the school on a regular basis. Additionally, I sent out an email to all parents with information about where to get free Internet service for the next two months.
Look for Teacher Web Pages across the top navigation bar. Click on the link and select your child's teacher. Keep checking back for more updates. Use the BLOG feature to chat with your teacher, talk with friends, and answer questions posed by your teacher.
Please continue to stay safe and healthy.
