To Our Colonial Community

In uncertain times, we are reminded of the incredible importance of community. In an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, we are doing as much as possible to promote social distancing, remote working environments, and support parents during school closures.  We must be proactive and creative in our attempts to stay connected during this “new normal.” For our families that means monitoring our website daily, keeping our students engaged with learning opportunities, and finding time for exercise and mental health breaks.

Current Status in Colonial: Schools Closed 

We continue to monitor changes as they happen and adjust our plans as needed. The most recent information regarding Colonial Schools is below.  

MARCH 24th from 4:00 - 7:00 pm

We are scheduling another opportunity for medicine, device and learning packet pickup for Tuesday, March 24th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at your child’s school. 

> If you have already picked up a packet, device, or any medicine left at school, there is no need to attend. 
The packets are the same as distributed last week.
> If you HAVE NOT picked up a packet or device, we are strongly encouraging:
• Colonial families, grades 2 through 12, to visit their child’s school during this time to ensure that their child has a device.
Colonial families who may have medicine at their child’s school.
• Colonial families, grades k through 12, who need a learning packet.
We are developing plans to thoughtfully support voluntary learning opportunities for as many students as possible in the coming weeks.

Grab and Go Food

Monday - Friday, children will receive lunch for the day and breakfast meal for the next morning at no cost. Please exercise patience. Our staff is working hard to serve all in need, but as you can imagine, this is no easy task. Bus schedules may change and some deliveries may be late because of high turn-outs at previous stops. We appreciate your cooperation.
• Meals are available for any child 18 years of age or younger
• A child does not have to be a Colonial School District student but must be present to receive meals.

The Power of WE in Motion!

More than a dozen staff volunteered to help our Nutrition Services team prepare and distribute breakfast and lunch bags. Today, a record 1,666 children were served 4 meals to feed them through the weekend. That's a total of 6,664 meals served today! Above, is just one bus loaded with food for delivery.

Teachers are also volunteering to help at Penn Farm so our precious crops won’t be ruined. Right now there are enough volunteers, but in the coming days, more staff and community volunteers will be needed. If you’d like to help, visit
Thanks to all of our dedicated staff and volunteers who are working on-site and at home. Colonial Nation is working together to benefit our students!
