The district’s food service company, Aramark, has been feeding all students in need since the school closures, working hard to make thousands of meals daily for the children. The district saw the importance of doing even more for the community, and working with local business, churches and nonprofits, it has now opened a food pantry out of the high school. 

Grocery bags will be given out every Wednesday from 7-10 a.m. to cars curbside at Exit 2 of the high school, off North 5th Street. Food donations will be accepted in person by appointment with Deer Park High School Assistant Principal Craig Evans. Two tables outside of Exit 2 will also be available for a “drop and go” on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7-10:30 a.m. Those donating are asked to leave a note.

“It is times like this where I know Deer Park will work together to help our community,” Evans said. “I am so proud to be a part of this town.  Thanks to the teachers, staff, administrators and community members who have already generously donated, and special thanks to Donna Elliott and the Board of Education for their donations, help and support throughout this process.”

Kristen Lombardo, a fourth-grade teacher for JFK, recently mailed “Flat Mrs. Lombardo” – a ‘flat” version of herself – to all of her students along with a poem she created. Inspired by the book “Flat Stanley,” Lombardo asked the fourth graders to take the “Flat Mrs. Lombardo” around with them and send back photos.

“I thought this was a great way to stay connected with my class in addition to our weekly Zoom meetings,” Lombardo said.

Teacher Briana Nussbaum recently gave her students at JFK and May Moore a Color Wheel Challenge, in which the students were asked to make color wheels from found objects at home.

“I was happy to see such beautiful results,” Nussbaum said. “The students told me how much fun they had working on these with their families.”
