UPDATED 3/19/20:

Dear West Hempstead Families,

During the current statewide closure of all schools, the West Hempstead school district will be providing breakfast and lunch for all households of enrolled children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Cafeterias will not be opened for use, so all meals will be provided on a “grab-and-go” basis. Each meal pickup will include breakfast and lunch for each eligible child in the household. You may pick up meals for more than one day during each visit, so that you don’t have to return every day, but meals will be available for pickup every weekday during the closure. All meals may be picked up at the front entrance of West Hempstead High School, 400 Nassau Boulevard, Monday through Friday, from 8am to 10am.

Please note that we have recently been advised that we can also provide meals for Saturdays and Sundays. If you have already picked up meals for Monday through Friday, you may return to pick up meals for Saturday and Sunday.

If you need to have the food delivered, please contact your building principal and we can arrange delivery.

We will keep you advised if there are any changes in this plan.
