Monday, March 23rd Loon Lake School District will have two possible options for you to get sacks of food. Meal sacks would contain that day’s lunch and the following day’s breakfast.

Option 1 will be delivery via school bus. The bus would deliver food in the morning (following their normal afternoon route).
