Breakfast and lunch are being provided at no cost to all enrolled students through an extension of the USDA Summer Food Service Program.

As Minnesota reported its first case of COVID-19 on March 6, we were headed into spring break. Since then, we’ve learned a lot about resilience, flexibility, creativity and the extraordinary things we can accomplish as Spring Lake Park Schools.
