COVID-19 Communication Regarding Food

The health and safety of the entire Rockcastle County community is our number one priority. While we are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 virus situation, we know that for some families, meeting their child’s basic needs can be difficult, especially those who may be food insecure.

To alleviate any food insecurities, Rockcastle County Schools Family Resource and Youth Service Center (FRYSC) Coordinators are working with identified families to meet such needs. On a daily basis, FRYSC Coordinators and the District Food Service Director in partnership with Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) will address any food insecurities that arise for our families. While exercising an abundance of caution, we will continue to model social distancing and other health precautions as recommended to protect our families, our staff and our community. For this reason, we will not have open feeding sites at this time.

Rockcastle County Schools will continue to monitor this situation on a daily basis. Please visit our district website for additional information and communication as we move forward:

The most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 is available online by going to: the Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ Coronavirus webpage, which includes information from the Center for Disease Control:  The Kentucky Department of Public Health has established a hotline and information center where people can get answers to their questions by calling 1-800-722-5725.
