CCSD 89 drive-up lunch service begins Wednesday, March 18

Update (3/31): Lunches are now available Mondays, Wednesdays. More info: https://bit.ly/2UOAYXe
 
Families who need food while schools are closed will be able to pick up lunches at two CCSD 89 schools starting Wednesday, March 18. Lunches will be available from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Briar Glen Elementary School, 1800 Briarcliffe Boulevard, Wheaton, and Glen Crest Middle School, 725 Sheehan Avenue, Glen Ellyn. There is no cost for lunches.
 
Families can pick up one meal each day for every child in their house 18 years old or younger. If your child is older than 18 and enrolled in special education, they can also receive lunch. These lunches are open to all families, not just those who receive free and reduced lunch.
 
Families can go to whichever school is most convenient for them. Children do not need to be present to pick up the meal. Families cannot pick up meals for friends or neighbors.
 
Families will receive a sack lunch, a snack, and milk or water. The meals will need to be refrigerated. All the meals meet the USDA guidelines for school lunches. Along with the lunch, the family will be handed a list of the ingredients in that lunch.

When picking up lunches

Families should not get out of their car when picking up lunch. A staff member will greet families as they pull up. Families can also walk up to get lunch. 

At Briar Glen: Drivers should enter the school’s parking lot from Briarcliffe Boulevard. When pulling into the lot, do not make an immediate left. Circle through the lot and pull up alongside Door 9, near the gymnasium. Cars will then circle through the parking lot to exit. A map is available here.

At Glen Crest: Drivers should use the same traffic pattern that is used for student pick up. Pull into the parking lot on the west side of the school from Sheehan Avenue, then make an immediate right. Drivers can stop in front of the school’s main doors where a staff member will deliver their meal. A map is available here.

If you have food questions or concerns at any time while schools are closed, contact Lauren Parker at lparker@ccsd89.org or (630) 545-3507.

The district will continue to communicate about food service and other important news. The latest CCSD 89 information on remote learning and school closings is at www.ccsd89.org/COVID
