The emergency Meals-to-You program through Baylor University is excited to announce that Baylor was able to extend service through August 15, 2020 for those that applied and were approved. Baylor will automatically continue shipping to your families on your existing bi-weekly schedule, up until 8/15/2020, unless you inform Baylor that you wish to discontinue services at an earlier date. If you wish to have an earlier end date, please let Baylor know through this link: https://forms.gle/ABingMYfb7a2Vxvq6. The last day that boxes will leave the warehouse is 8/15/2020. This means that boxes could continue to arrive in your communities after that date. Because so many unknowns remain surrounding COVID, Baylor received permission for this program to overlap with school service in the fall. Baylor is humbled to be able to serve the students in this way. If your students need assistance (address change, damaged box, etc.) they should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and include the information that Baylor support team will need to accurately locate them in their database (school, state, student name, and birth date).

Mr. Cook & Mr. Williams, I teach special needs bus recertification classes & for the last 3 years, I’ve taught at Winfield Elementary School. I travel around the state daily & WES has become one of my favorite schools to visit. I’ve enjoyed seeing staff & students dress for Dr. Seuss Week, staff helping students out of cars in morning drop off, and a general friendly/happy attitude. Thursday, I was teaching at WES & had the opportunity to witness the Student of the Month ceremonies; it was awesome! I loved the parent involvement, music, student excitement, & teacher participation. So many times when I’m at schools, I hear the negatives or difficulties, it was so uplifting to witness the positives being celebrated. In closing, thank you for creating an inviting environment where it truly seems that students are flourishing.
