Germantown, Tennessee--September 11, 2020--Beginning Monday, September 14, student meals in GMSD will be served at no cost to all students through December 2020! Free meals include both breakfast and lunch.
What does this mean for your GMSD student(s)? Students in GMSD have access to free meals. This program only applies to students 18 and younger. Remote learning students are eligible as well. Students will continue to provide their Meal ID#’s. Only reimbursable breakfast and lunch meals are at no cost to the student. This USDA waiver does not apply to either a la carte items (i.e., bottled water, chips, etc.) or second meals. Feel free to add funds to your child’s meal account if they wish to purchase a la carte items via http://myschoolbucks.com/ Why?
Considering economically challenging times, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is providing funding to GMSD to support the school nutrition program for ALL students. This funding was designated by the USDA to help families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

March 13, 2020--The COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly evolving, and we have been closely monitoring the situation. After serious and considerable deliberation and input from many stakeholders, the six municipal Shelby County superintendents in Arlington, Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown, Lakeland, and Millington have made the collective decision to cancel classes, extracurricular activities, and sporting events through the week following Spring Break.
At this time, we are closing schools through Friday, March 27th. This will provide opportunities for social distancing, thorough disinfection of schools and buses, and contingency planning in the case prolonged closures are required at some point in the future. We ask that families do not simply view this as an extended Spring Break or additional vacation time. Families should heed the warnings of health experts and limit your social interactions during this time to prevent the spread of the virus.
Thank you for your support as we navigate this challenging situation. We will continue to seek the advice of health professionals as developments occur and make updates as necessary.
