Superintendent Dr. William Todd Cason was at one of the sites, he says parents have been really appreciative.

”When parents had to feed their children for several months now, it creates some hardships. And so we felt necessary that we help our parents to provide the necessary resources the necessary nourishment for our children during this extended closure,” said Dr. Cason.
