Breakfast and lunch will be served through a carline each weekday at all of their schools.
Childcare and healthcare will continue to be provided for healthcare workers and emergency responders.
There will be a delivery of 2,000 hotspots by early next week to ensure all students can continue learning remotely.

The school goes on to say teachers and principals will be available for students to reach out to with questions or concerns.
