Dear RUSD Families,
We remain committed to providing updates to you so that you are informed about any new developments. We also want to reiterate to you that we know this is a very stressful time for our families. There are many unknowns and uncertainties, and it is hard to suddenly have to navigate work from home or work away from home, home life, AND homeschool for your children. We feel that angst right alongside you, although we have been so very impressed and proud of our students, families, teachers, and staff for jumping right in and doing what it takes to allow education to continue. Does it look the same? NO. Does it feel the same? NO. Do we know exactly what to do? NO. We believe we are going to make it through this time together and come out stronger on the other side, because we are working together and collaborating. Remember to give yourselves grace! It is going to be OKAY!
We wanted to provide you with an updated FAQ sheet. Let us know if you have additional questions!

Starting Monday, April 27, 2020 the Rescue Union School District Nutrition Services Department will implement a FREE Grab and Go meal delivery model that distributes meals on a weekly basis for any child 18 years of age and younger.

Meals for each week will only be handed out on the following dates:

Monday, April 27

A Summer Feeding program will be announced soon for June and July, so stay tuned.
To help us limit the exposure for our staff and our families, this will be a drive up service where we will hand you the bags containing five (5) days of meals for each child that is in your family. Please do not get out of your vehicles as we want to ensure the safety of you and our staff.
We will provide these free breakfast and lunch bagged meals at the following locations:
  • Pleasant Grove Middle School 2540 Green Valley Road - Look for the pop-up awning in the bus loop area Meals will be available between 11:00 am - 1:00 pm.
  • Green Valley Elementary School outside the Office building at 2380 Bass Lake Road from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm.
  • Knolls at Green Valley Apartments, on the corner of Cambridge Road and Cimarron Road – we will have a vehicle with lunches available from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm.
Families may walk or drive up to receive their meals at these locations and take the meals home to eat. We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the school site and utilizing social distancing once meals have been distributed.
