    UPDATE (3/27/20): These past couple of weeks have presented challenges we've never seen at Shelby County Schools or anywhere in our city. Through it all, we continue to see inspiring examples of resilience, empathy and understanding by our students, families and staff. We may not know how long this will last, and we may not know what will happen next. But, what we do know - no matter what - is that SCS is 901, and we are committed to doing everything in our power to keep supporting our community.



    The YMCA is distributing FREE student meals at all sites previously designated for SCS meals. The YMCA is providing all of the food and coordinating the distribution with its own staff members. The YMCA is a valued partner, and the District is extremely appreciative for this support in such a time of urgent need. Meals are available M-F while schools are closed, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., for all children 18 and under. The child must be present to receive a meal.

    The Mid-South Food Bank is also making meals available for students at all of its mobile food pantries in the Memphis area. Families must bring an official form of ID that includes residence (ex. driver’s license or utility bill). Hours and locations can be found here. The Mid-South Food Bank is in need of volunteers and donations to help support this effort. Get info on how to help here.

    The YMCA is distributing FREE meals at these sites M-F while schools are closed, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., to all children 18 and under. The child must be present to receive a meal. Families without internet access can also pickup SCS student learning guides every Monday and Tuesday at all of the sites below while schools are closed. View a map of all locations here.
