On October 9, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced extensions of nationwide waivers. This allows all Perry Local students to receive breakfast and lunch meals at no cost throughout the school year 2020-2021. All Perry Cafeterias serve a grab & go breakfast and a nutritious hot lunch daily. This will also allow Perry Virtual Academy students to continue receiving daily meals at no cost using our VA pre-order & pick-up form. We encourage all students to take advantage of these free meals to help with the financial burdens of families during this difficult time. Ala-carte items including extra pizza, sandwiches, milk and bottled water charged according to pricing.
It is with great sadness that I must inform you that a Perry High School student has passed away. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to our student’s family and friends. As information begins to circulate within our student body and community, we feel it is imperative that you receive reliable information from our district. It is important to inform you at this time that this tragedy was non-COVID-19 related. School counselors and other school-based mental health providers are available to assist our students in their time of need during the grieving process. Caring for our student’s physical and mental health has never been more important. We encourage our families to speak with their children and offer ongoing support and guidance.
