Per USDA/ADE guidance, at least one child must be present when picking up meals for a household.  We ask that all students are present to pick up their meals for the day, but if they are unable to leave their home, please notify the Food Service staff member and the district will do their best to assist and remain compliant with the SFSP guidelines.  We thank you for your assistance and understanding during this unprecedented time and know that the Pendergast Elementary School District is working to ensure that our students have meals available to them on a daily basis.
