Meals and other Services
Starting on April 13, 2020 we will distribute food twice a week between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
For as long as school remains closed due to COVID-19, meal pick-ups at school locations will only occur on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please help us do our part to limit social interaction, maintain social distancing and protect our students, families and employees.

We are working with community partners to provide supplemental meals to families in need and expand our capacity. Since new offerings are constantly developing, anyone seeking information about these resources should call the United Way of the Bluegrass 211 Contact Center for the most up-to-date information. Dialing 211 from any phone will connect you to this service.
Our Family Resource and Youth Service Centers are also available to help with basic necessities. We are especially grateful to the Jenna and Matthew Mitchell Foundation at Blue Grass Community Foundation and The Calipari Foundation for making it possible to support hundreds of families during this unprecedented emergency.
If the school your children attend does not have a FRYSC, please call the center closest to you. Please don’t hesitate to call our district at 859-381-4100 with questions, concerns or suggestions. You can also find resources at our www.fcps.net/COVID19 website.
We understand that these are difficult times for families and helping your student with Non-Traditional Instruction is an additional challenge. Some adults are still required to work, others are working from home and many have lost their employment because of the steps taken to stop the spread of COVID-19.
District Mental Health Professionals are available to respond to and support youth and families. To reach this service, call 859-381-4100. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call the New Vista Crisis Hotline at 1-800-928-8000 to speak with a local professional.
Whatever your family is facing, our district is here to help. Please reach out to your child’s school or the district office and let us know how we can support you.
