District news


Additional meal distribution sites being added on Monday, April 6
Starting on Monday, April 6, Arlington Public Schools is adding additional meal distribution sites throughout the district so all kids have access to meals. The district has been providing meals for all students since March 16 at Presidents Elementary and Arlington High School. The district added an additional 10 sites on March 23 in areas closer to neighborhoods where students live, and will add four more locations starting on April 6.

“We have been evaluating the expanded meal locations over the past two weeks,” said Brian Lewis, Executive Director of Operations. “We have been focusing on the locations that are more distant from the city of Arlington. The four additional sites that we’re adding are located within the city limits of Arlington but are not within walking distance of any of our other locations. During this difficult time, we want to make it as easy as possible for families to feed their children.”

Breakfast and lunch meals can be picked up at the locations below between 9:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. Meals at Presidents Elementary and Arlington High School can be picked up between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

In order to help us identify how many meals to prepare for each location, we are asking families to complete a form on the district website at

Chromebook checkout information
If you need a Chromebook to help you do school work we will be checking them out to Arlington School District families beginning this week. Following is the schedule for pickup at each school.


To assist us in planning please fill out the online form to indicate whether you need a Chromebook and/or Cellular hotspot for use at home. We do not have hotspots currently available, but we will contact you when they arrive.

This is the form for high school and middle school students

This is the form for elementary students

Please keep in mind that your home internet may only support 2-4 people working online at the same time. You may not need a Chromebook for each of your children. If you have children at multiple schools, we ask that you check out each Chromebook at the school that your child attends.

This will be a drive through pickup. Attached is the Chromebook checkout form. If you can, we would ask you to print this, fill it out and bring it to the school during checkout. If you cannot, we will have forms available. Families will line up in their cars, staff will collect the checkout forms and then a staff member will deliver the Chromebook to your car. We will include instructions on connecting it to your home network, printing, etc…

Students do not need to be present. Any adult family member may pick up a device for their child. You will need to have your child's student ID number with you. For elementary students this is the same number as their id for Accelerated Reader. You can also find this number by logging in to Skyward Family Access.
