WILMINGTON — Wilmington City Schools (WCS) staff has been diligently working to prepare instructional materials for all students in the wake of the governor’s order for Ohio schools to be closed.
These materials will provide students the opportunity to continue their learning during the extended break.
For the first wave of materials, WCS opted to provide hard copies for all families. On Monday, March 16, in the afternoon, each WCS building distributed materials to parents and students.
As your child completes work from the packet, please keep it organized so the student can return it to their teacher later.
Wilmington school district teachers will be working on the second wave of materials. Please watch for district and school building communications for details.
Please frequently check the WCS district’s website for updates regarding instructional materials during the school closure.
WCS will also continue to send updates via the One-Call System.
Starting Wednesday, March 18, Wilmington City Schools will distribute free student lunches, along with breakfast for the next day.
The school district has six (6) distribution sites throughout the district where kids can pick up their meal. Please note that student lunches are available for every Wilmington City Schools student, regardless of income or age.
Pick-up times are Mondays through Fridays, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
These are the pick-up locations:
• Wilmington Middle School, 275 Thorne Ave. in Wilmington, in the horseshoe-shaped parking lot.
• Clinton County Job & Family Services, 1025 S. South St. in Wilmington, parking lot.
• Denver Place Elementary School, 291 Lorish Ave. in Wilmington, bus parking lot.

Just look for the Wilmington Schools bus or van. And remember to practice social distancing when picking up meals, so we can protect each other!
WCS Superintendent Mindy McCarty-Stewart tweeted Monday that while “we can’t wrap our heads around this crisis I am inspired by the caring and compassionate people I have the privilege to serve. Thx to our food service department. They made sure we were able to pass out lunches to all students today and a breakfast bag.”
