SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Today is the first day of schools being closed in Louisiana due to the Coronavirus and the Bossier and Caddo School Districts will still provide students meals throughout the closure.

Breakfast will be served from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. Lunch will be available from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
“We pick schools that are very centrally located, within our communities of poverty so that we can make sure all children have an opportunity to go to those sites and they can receive their breakfast and lunch. I think it’s really important to note that no child will be turned away, so whether you attend Magnolia or Magnet high or whatever school you may attend no child will be turned away,” said Dr. Lamar Goree, Caddo Schools Superintendent.
