Hello Lancers Families:

Edinburgh Community School Corp would like to thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this uncharted change in our planned school year.  We understand there will be issues, collaboration, and creativity happening over the next few weeks, but we are doing everything we can to provide the best information as we understand the current situation in our state and community.

If you would like to pick up meals for your students, it is EXTREMELY important that you complete the survey to make sure that we have enough meals prepared and can properly account for the meals served.  These free meals for all students are served "Grab and Go".  A lunch and breakfast will be provided at the same time.

Below is our current plan for ensuring school age students have continued meal service during this time.  

Meals - Our excellent cafeteria staff will be preparing and distributing meals through the summer meals program.  Meals are free to children 18 and under. 

When: Monday – Friday, March 23 to March 27 and Monday – Friday, March 30 to April 3, 2020  

Where: Outside the main entrance of East Side Elementary, 810 East Main Cross, Edinburgh.  Pull into the bus only drive and someone will bring the meals to your vehicle. 

When: Pick up times will be 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday-Friday starting March 23, 2020

Meals for students are served "Grab and Go".  A lunch and breakfast will be provided at the same time. There will be no cost for these meals as they are served through the summer meals program and not the school lunch and breakfast program.  The USDA has made this exception during this unique situation that our state and country is enduring.

It is EXTREMELY important that you complete the survey on our website at or facebook to ensure that we have enough meals prepared.  We need to order the food and milk in advance so your prompt response to the survey will be greatly appreciated. If you don’t have access to complete the online survey, please call 812-526-2681 with the number of student meals to be picked up and what days you will be picking up. 

What can I do to stop the spread of illness?

As with all illnesses, handwashing is the most effective way to stop the spread. Please remind your students to wash their hands thoroughly (for at least 20 seconds) and to practice good hygiene.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Cough or sneeze into your sleeve, rather than your hands, if a tissue is not available.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you get sick, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
  • If you develop flu-like symptoms, call your healthcare provider to determine next steps for care.
