School Meals Update
The USDA has extended the waivers that allow us to offer meals at no charge to children under the age of 18 regardless of their enrollment in Obion County Schools. Therefore, we will continue to offer both breakfast and lunch at no charge to all children in Obion County who are 18 years old and younger through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
Students who are enrolled in our system as distance learners, as well as children through the age of 18 in the county who are not enrolled in Obion County Schools can pick up meals daily at any school between 12:00 and 12:30.
Children must be present at pick up to receive the meals.
Students who are ‘in person learners’ in our schools will also receive meals at no cost.
