• Dear AFMS Families,

    I hope this message finds you well on this Sunday evening.  Hopefully each family has received a message from WCPSS stating that Tuesday, March 17th-the building will be open from 12pm through 5pm.  The purpose of this opening is for staff members and families to pick-up personal items that may have been left last week.

    Please know that our guidance is coming from the District to ensure that we are aligned with the District’s Coordinated Plan.  I share this information so you will know that we are awaiting guidance from the District on how to manage instruction and coursework. Individual teachers, principals, or schools are not to be operating on their own accord. As we receive updated information, we will share it with you. We are certainly in unchartered waters, and we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

    Emergency Meals Information:

    Dear Cary & Apex Area Schools,

    With the closing of school, I know many of you are concerned about your low-income children and their access to food during this emergency closure.  Through the Summer Food Service Program, we are able to open emergency meal sites in our area.  These will be curb-side service, so families can drive through and pick up meals at no charge!  We are happy to announce that the meals are prepared by Boston Market and served by local volunteers!

    The following locations will provide meals:

    • First United Methodist Cary (117 South Academy Street, Cary NC) – Lunches 12:15-1:15pm Monday to Friday.
    • Chatham Forest Apartments (880 Glendale, Cary NC) – Dinners 6:30-7:30pm Tuesdays and Thursdays
    • Apex First Baptist Church (419 South Salem Street, Apex NC) – Dinners 6:30-7:30pm Mondays and Wednesdays
    • Arbors of Cary (200 Wrenn Drive, Cary NC) – Dinners 6:00-7:00pm Mondays to Thursdays.

    Additionally, Briarcliff Elementary will be providing school meals Mondays to Fridays from 12:00-1:00pm.

    If you know of a family that lacks transportation, we are diligently working with volunteers and the police/fire departments to arrange delivery.  If you know a family that would benefit from this service, please email kirksummerfoods@gmail.com.  We cannot guarantee delivery, but we will do our best!

    Thank you for your support of children!

    Stephanie Workman, Chair of the Western Regional Food Security Taskforce
