Meals will be available for pick-up at Head Start on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Meals can either be picked up daily, or meals for all three days can be provided on Tuesday. Meal pick-up will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Head Start front office.

The anticipated return date for students is Jan. 24, PISD communications coordinator Wayne Walden said.
