Gov. Charlie Baker has issued what he called a "stay-at-home advisory" to take effect this week, but stopped short of enacting a full-blown order for residents to remain inside their homes for two weeks as the state works to stop the spread of coronavirus.
With schools closed until at least April 6, districts across the Merrimack Valley have vowed to keep children fed for breakfast and lunch until classes are back in session.
In Andover, students are able to pick up breakfast and lunch for two days at Andover High School from 11 to 11:30 a.m. at the front entrance on Friday, March 27.
Meals will also be dropped off by a refrigerated van that will stop for 12 minutes at select stops throughout town on that same day between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Families with questions are asked to contact Food Service Director Gail Koutroubas or Taylor Pirog by phone at 978-247-5520.
