Today, the Governor of Iowa announced that school closures will extend thru April 30, 2020. Moving forward, the state will examine the data every two weeks to determine the course of action. Andrew CSD will reach out to all families next week to inform you of our plan to offer voluntary educational opportunities for April 13 - April 30.
Starting Wednesday April 1st, we will be handing out lunches in front of the office doors instead of the park. Simply drive up and we'll drop off your lunches to your car. You won't even have to get out of your car.
If you receive meal deliveries, please have a cooler or box outside your front door. When we drop off your meals, we will put your meals in the container you provide for us and ring your doorbell/knock. We are doing this to social distance during these crazy times.
Good Morning Hawks! I miss you! Click on the link below and let me know what you have been up to! I Love Your Faces! https://flipgrid.com/00482409
