Los Alamos Public Schools will have an additional day of lunch pickups this week. We had extra food today due to weather. Families can pick up shelf stable food items for all children 18 and under on Wednesday, February 17 from 11:30 – 1:00 at Aspen and Piñon Elementary schools. Come by and pick up in our drive through service. Thank you to Chartwells food service for their excellent service for our students.

Although all meals are free until May 28, 2021, you can help the district by applying for a Chartwells account and completing the Free and Reduced lunch application.
