GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Gadsden County School District says they are ending their free meals program after an employee at Stewart Street Elementary School has been hospitalized with symptoms of COVID-19.
Superintendent Roger Milton and the Gadsden County School Board say they value the safety and health of all of their employees and will end the meals beginning Thursday, April 16.
"We will be talking and meeting regularly and daily, and as soon as we can put other methods and things in place, we'll definitely work to make sure there are meals provided for our students," Milton told WCTV.
The district says the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Science is exploring methods of providing food to Gadsden County students and children. Officials say further information will be available in "the near future,"
