    Children must be in the car for staff to verify in order for parents and guardians to receive a meal. Parents and guardians should follow the signs when entering each of the school campuses. Our Food & Nutrition Services department will attempt to accommodate a child's allergens – parents and guardians will need to email Kristen.Pulfer@sarasotacountyschools.net with allergen considerations, school location for pick-up, and approximate time of pick-up.
