WHERE: Staff Sargent James J. Hill Elementary School51 Park Avenue, Revere
WHO: Revere Public Schools Superintendent Dianne Kelly 
WHAT: During the COVID-19 closures, Revere Public Schools’ food program is being offered at all eight school sites across the City, with bagged breakfasts and lunches being provided during two serving windows. In its first day of service yesterday, the system provided 350 meals to students and families. The department has committed to meal service for every child in Revere, whether or not they are a student in the public schools system.  
Each school site is adopting a serving model to allow for students and families to pick up meals without having to enter the building. Revere Police are providing schools with on-site support.
The School Department will also roll-out its online learning curriculum on Thursday. Students and parents will be able to access lesson plans specific to their individual schools and grade levels. For families who do not have a device at home, a limited number of iPads are available for pick-up from principals. 
The Department’s goal is to keep all students engaged in their education and provide them with some predictability and stability during this uncertain time. In addition to teachers developing lesson plans for their students, occupational and physical therapists are also planning for how they can continue to engage and provide services to families, including exploring videoconferencing. The school-based health center run by Mass General Hospital at Revere High School remains open.
The Revere Public Schools system serves 7,532 students; 78 percent of students are low-income and 24 percent are English language learners.
