UPDATE: Twin Falls School District distributes more than 2,000 Chromebooks and close to 3,000 meals on Monday
UPDATE: The Twin Falls School District says they distributed roughly 2,050 Chromebooks and 2,980 grab & go meals to 1,495 children on Monday.
A spokesperson for the district also says they've received a waiver so that the children do not need to be present for a parent to pick up the meal. If parents did not hear from a teacher Monday, that could be because the district doesn't have the parent's correct contact information. The TFSD is encouraging anyone who is not receiving communications from teachers, schools or the district to contact their child's school.
Monday was a busy day for the Twin Falls School District as they're providing families Chromebooks who need them for distance learning, as well as providing Grab-N-Go Meals at several schools in the district.
Below is more information on the times and places Monday's events will be happening and more information is included on their website at

Starting, Monday, March 30, we will begin feeding community children at six locations, Bickel, Harrison, Lincoln, Morningside, Oregon Trail, and Perrine. Breakfast and lunch will be available to children ages 1-18 free of charge. As per federal rules, children must be present to receive the meals. Parents will not be allowed to pick up meals for children who are not with them.
Both meals, a breakfast and a lunch, will be given at the same time from the front of the schools. Food has to be taken off-site and will be in a grab-n-go sack. Adults may purchase meals just like in summer. Meals will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Cost of meals for the parents will be $3.30 for breakfast and $4.55 for lunch.
Parents must be present and sign a form for their children to have access to these devices.
Please do not check out a device if you have one as supplies are limited. One Chromebook will be supplied per family.
