Shelbyville Community Unit School District #4 may be closed, but it’s still feeding minds and stomachs.
Shelbyville schools were closed down due to the coronavirus, beginning March 16. The teachers and staff of the schools got to work and came up with CLK’s (Continued Learning Kits) for parents to pick up and take to their kids to feed their minds while they were stuck at home.
CLKs can be accessed either electronically, or they can be picked up at the office of each school building. CLKs can be downloaded from the district website: http://www.shelbyville.k12.il.us/.
If you are not able to access the CLKs, please contact your school office. Teachers are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM to answer student and parent questions about CLKs. Teacher emails are available on the district website.
“Students, your administrators and teachers urge you to take full advantage of these CLKs,” said Shelbyville Schools Superintendent Shane Schuricht. “Many parents and students have reached out to us to show us examples of students engaged with CLKs. These are awesome! Keep up the great work and stay engaged!”
Not content to only feed their minds, the school district got together with Aramark Food Service and is delivering food to students during the school shutdown.
“Shelbyville CUSD #4 is committed to feeding our students and their siblings during this pandemic and mandated school closure,” said Main Street School principal Ryan Scott.
All students and household family members below the age of 18 are eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch (Monday – Friday).
“The schools are working with Aramark to prepare the meals daily,” Schuricht said. “Our bus drivers and para-professionals are working pick-up locations and delivering to homes.”
Schuricht published a letter on Friday urging people to continue to sign up for meals.
“We distributed or delivered (Friday) 730 meals to 365 students,” Schuricht said. “We are proud of this service and wish everyone to take advantage of it.”
Schuricht said they have distributed up to 760 meals a day. The meals can be picked up at either Moulton Middle School or Main Street Elementary from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Meals can also be delivered.
