Also, here are some previously shared messages that are important to our families:
2. This message is for all families that need access to health care.
With Ohio’s ordered school-building closure period set to last until at least Monday, April 6, Toledo Public Schools students are not able to access our TPS school-based health centers.
That is why the Rams Health Center and the Bulldog Health Center are currently offering a Telehealth option for all Toledo Public Schools students. Access to a health care provider for physical or mental health is available.
Dr. Amy Acton, the director of the Ohio Department of Health, has ordered all Ohioans to 'stay at home,' effective at midnight on Monday, March 23, in an attempt to contain the coronavirus ravaging the country. That means a majority of businesses are closing.
However, one of the exemptions under the order are locations serving grab-and-go food, so Toledo Public Schools will continue to offer meals to all students on weekdays between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Lunch and breakfast for the following day can be picked up at the following locations:
Bowsher High School: 2200 Arlington Ave.
McKinley/DeVilbiss: 3344 Westland Ave.
Jones Leadership Academy of Business: 430 Nebraska Ave.
Rogers High School: 220 McTigue Dr.
Scott High School: 2400 Collingwood Blvd.
Start High School: 2010 Tremainsville Rd.
Waite High School: 301 Morrison Dr.
Woodward High School: 701 E. Central Ave.
This meal service is designed as a drive-thru with one-way entrance and one-way exit.
Families need to call the United Way’s 2-1-1 Support Line 48 hours in advance to reserve meals for their student(s).
