  • Grab-No-Go Meals at Falkener

    Grab n Go Meals at Falkener beginning September 1st 11:00am to 12;00pm with lunchbox, drink and fruit image

    Starting Sept. 1, the process to pick-up student meals will look different than it has since March, when the pandemic closed schools across the country.
    Meals will now be available on a “grab and go” basis from 11 a.m. to noon, Monday-Friday, at all GCS schools. You do not have to go to the school(s) your children attend to pick-up meals, which include lunch and breakfast for the following day.
