Before classes were cancelled, St. Paul Education was very proud of its Breakfast Program that provided students in all our schools with access to nutritious meals and snacks.
“Despite some changes in our funding from Alberta Education, we are pleased to report our Nutrition Grant targeted funding will continue,” stated SPERD chair Heather Starosielski in a press release.
“During these difficult economic times, our Nutrition Grant will be used to provide local grocery store gift cards to our vulnerable students and their families. This week we have already begun to reach out to potential families and we plan to continue this process on a bi- weekly basis.
We very much recognize there may be others that have fallen to unpredictable circumstances and we invite you to contact your schools for more assistance.”
Starosielski added, “as a division staff, we certainly miss our students and wish everyone a Happy Easter.”
