Tidioute Charter School provides grab n go meals

Tidioute Community Charter School will be a grab-and-go location for its students.

The school, like every other public school, brick-and-mortar charter school, and cyber charter school in the state, was closed for two weeks by order of Gov. Tom Wolf. Effective this week, TCCS will distribute bagged meals for its eligible students.

Pick-up times are 10 (breakfast) and 11:30 a.m. (lunch). Meals will be available on Thursday, March 19, Monday, March 23, and Wednesday, March 25. At each distribution, “you will receive two days of breakfast and lunch” except for the March 25 distribution, which will include three days, according to Allen. The available meals began on Tuesday at TCCS.

Pick-up is being handled at the bus loading area and those picking up are asked to remain in their vehicles. TCCS students must be in the vehicle in order to receive meals.

“TCCS will provide a variety of other products if families ask for help with basic supplies,” CEO Dr. Doug Allen said.

The school will also provide non-mandatory educational materials for students.

“Please visit your child’s classroom webpage for educational activities,” Allen said. “These activities are encouraged, but are not required. Work at home is optional and is considered enrichment.”

“Families with very specific questions or special concerns should call TCCS at 484-3550,” Allen said. “The TCCS web page will have updates at all times.”

Among the students at TCCS are students who reside in Warren, Forest, Venango, and Crawford counties.
