SCHOOL MEALS- Considered an essential service during stay-at-home order.
Dayton City School will continue to distribute meals weekly on Monday and Wednesday between 11am-1pm.  It will be a grab-n-go service in front of Dayton City School.  A breakfast/lunch meal pack for each week day will be provided to every child 18 years and younger, even if they are not a Dayton City School student.  Child must be present to get meals per USDA regulations.

Packet set number 2 will be sent home via the US mail the week of April 6-9. Be aware that packets are mailed in stages, so some students packets may arrive sooner than others. If you have a reason to believe we have an incorrect mailing address on file, please call the school at 423-775-8414 and let us verify your address.
