Pre-Ordering Virtual Student Meal PacksThis year, any virtual student who would like to pick up meal packs on Wednesdays (beginning September 15th) must fill out a pre-order form each week (due on Mondays beginning September 13th). This will cut down on the waste we experienced last year.Also, virtual student meals can be picked up at 5 locations: Bluewell School (3:00-4:00), Bluefield Primary (3:00-4:00), Athens School (3:00-4:00), Lashmeet Matoaka School (3:00-4:00), and Princeton High School (4:00-5:00).Mercer County Schools will send out an automated call to remind virtual families each week to fill out their pre-order form. The link to the form is below and will also be posted on our website.
