PECPS to provide bagged breakfast, lunch during COVID-19 closure

Prince Edward County Public Schools (PECPS) will utilize the U.S. Department of Agriculture Summer Food Service Program to provide bagged breakfast and lunch meals during the two-week school closure brought on by the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
