Here is official email from Kennewick School District regarding the Coronavirus closure of schools AND meal service options that will start Tuesday, March 17:

"By executive order of Gov. Jay Inslee, all Kennewick schools will close to students beginning March 17 through at least April 24. We know this closure will create a hardship for our families, and we are grateful for your patience and cooperation as we work through this challenging situation.

All school events, activities, athletics, competitions, facility rentals, and Community Education classes are postponed until at least April 24.

Free Meals for Students

We plan to provide free drive-up or walk-up "grab-and-go" meals to children weekdays from March 17 through at least April 24 (including April 6-10, the week of Spring Break) at several school sites.

Children 18 years and younger must be present to receive a grab-and-go bag. Meals will not be distributed to children who are not present.

Meals will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the following school sites: Amistad, Amon Creek, Canyon View, Eastgate, Lincoln, Park, Ridge View, Southgate, and Vista. If more sites are added, we will update the list at www.ksd.org. "
