TAMPA — Among the many details that remain to be worked out as schools remain closed until at least April 15: How will families get to school to pick up the free meals that the district is making available?
HARTline, the county’s public bus system, released a map of its routes, designed to help families navigate the transportation issue.
The school-based nutrition sites are open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every week day beginning Monday. Children ages 18 and younger will receive breakfast and lunch, packaged and distributed from school buses.
The district is encouraging parents and caregivers to drive to the sites, but the HARTline option exists for those without cars.
The locations are: Alonso, Armwood, Blake, Brandon, Chamberlain, Durant, East Bay, Hillsborough, Jefferson, King, Lennard, Leto, Middleton, Plant City, Spoto, Strawberry Crest and Wharton high schools; Madison, Rodgers, Sligh and Smith middle schools; and Mort and Reddick elementary schools.
