Grab & Go meals will not be provided at Yucca Middle School through November 20, due to a potential COVID-19 exposure. The closure will allow time for safe and appropriate cleaning, as well as provide time for staff members to self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms.

During this time, meals will be available at alternate school sites, with Parkview and Zia Elementary schools being the closest. Grab & Go meals can also be picked up at any of the District’s school buildings regardless of a child’s attendance status. All meal sites in the District have been observing public health guidelines and meals have been distributed through a contactless, walk-up distribution system. Additionally, meals are prepared by staff wearing gloves and masks, eliminating human contact with food or packaging.

Please continue to send your child to school unless you have been notified that your child was a close contact of a positive COVID-19 individual, your child develops COVID-19 symptoms, or your child has a positive COVID-19 test. The District has provided decision trees for COVID-19 symptoms, quarantine, and isolation online: Likewise, your household members do not need to quarantine unless your child tests positive for COVID-19 or your household members are identified as a close contact of a positive COVID- 19 individual. The District will not release further information or comment on specific COVID-19 cases due to privacy laws.
