Wichita Public Schools will release a more detailed plan on how they will proceed with the continuous learning plan for students on Friday.

Superintendent Dr. Alicia Thompson hosted a news conference Tuesday afternoon to give updates on Sedgwick County’s stay-at-home order, continuous learning opportunities for students, meal service, and retrieving personal items from schools.

Dr. Thompson said USD 259 teachers and staff are continuing to work on study materials for students during this COVID-19 pandemic, alongside providing regular meals to students and other online education support.

Dr. Thompson said the Tuesday press conference will be the last in-person press conference from the school district, and that everything else will be done online starting on what they are calling ‘Phase One Friday.’

Starting on Wednesday, March 25, meals will be made available at more locations. All children 18 years old and under can receive a free meal. There is no paperwork or signup required. Once again, the child must be present in order to receive a meal.

There will be drive-up and walk-up service available. And, you can pick up meals at any school, regardless of where your child attends.
