Iredell-Statesville Schools administrators donned their Easter costumes and delivered a treat to some essential school district employees on Thursday.
Pressly School Principal Mark Grega made his delivery in style on his Harley-Davidson and wished his fellow employees a peaceful holiday weekend.
In addition to the hundreds of classroom teachers who continue to teach students remotely, I-SS has approximately 400 employees who are reporting to work every day to serve the young people of Iredell County. The district is serving an average of 10,000 meals each day during the COVID-19 crisis.
The Nutrition Department has delivered approximately 180,000 meals in the last several weeks. I-SS staff handed out 30,000 food kits for the long holiday weekend.
Families are picking up meals at one of 15 nutrition hubs across the district. For families that are unable to pick meals up, I-SS bus drivers are delivering meals to homes using I-SS buses.
“Our employees’ dedication is very much appreciated and certainly doesn’t go unnoticed,” I-SS spokeswoman Boen Nutting said of the employees who are dedicated to serving students during the pandemic. “On behalf of the I-SS district and families across the county, we extend a grateful thank you. We wish our I-SS family a Happy Easter holiday and hope they enjoy their much-needed days off to celebrate and be with their families.”
