Welcome to WRSD Food Nutrition Services!
September Reopening - Remote Learning Meal Distribution Program
As we 'Return to Remote' on September 16th, meals will again be served curbside at 5 district sites, with a few modifications from the previous curbside model. Meals will again be served using a drive-thru model, allowing for parent pick up. However, our required transition back to the National School Lunch Program will result in the following process impacts:
Curbside meal pick up will be available beginning Thursday, September 17th at the following locations:
~ Wachusett Regional High School (1401 Main St. Holden)
~ Glenwood Elementary (65 Glenwood Rd. Rutland)
~ Paxton Center School (19 West St. Paxton)
~ Thomas Prince School (170 Sterling St. Princeton)
