We want to thank you for all you do for your children. Our lives have been shaken and changed by the COVID-19 pandemic. No matter what you’re feeling and experiencing, we want you to know you are not alone. Though we’re separated by physical distance, we’re here for you and united in our mission to serve our learners, families, and one another.

To strengthen our sense of community and provide an opportunity to communicate honestly throughout this time, we launched the iLEAD Family Resource helpline available to you, toll-free, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Free Breakfast and Lunch

Based on the recent announcement from the USDA, we are excited to announce the return of the Summer Seamless Program, free meals to all. Starting Monday, September 14, we will be providing meals to all children up to 18 years of age at no charge. You do not need to be an enrolled learner in order to receive free meals. Each child will receive one grab-and-go breakfast and lunch on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 AM to 1 PM except on school holidays. On Mondays, we will hand out food for Monday through Wednesday. On Thursdays, we will hand out food for Thursday and Friday. Children need not be present to pick up.

While our site is closed, school lunch will be grab-and-go with minimal contact and may not be consumed on-site. Breakfast and lunch will be served together. Please drive up to the front office in the upper parking lot (11311 Frascati St, Agua Dulce, CA), and we will come to the car. For your protection and ours, please wear a cloth face covering when picking up meals.

Please make sure to continue to fill out the Multipurpose Income Form, as this will help to establish your eligibility for when this program stops, and will also help our school in many other ways. This form needs to be filled out for every learner and submitted each year by October 1. It can be submitted in a variety of ways. You can fill it out via a fillable PDF (attached) and email it to gladys.ramirez@ileadaguadulce.org, fill out a paper form (attached in English, attached in Spanish) and drop it off at the front office, or — in our newest, completely digital way — you can complete it via the My Mealtime online platform. This new option ensures the confidentiality of your form and can be done from home. Please see the attached instructions on how to access this option. Please email all forms (by October 1) and any questions to gladys.ramirez@ileadaguadulce.org.
