  • School Closure

    School Closure

    As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves rapidly so have the recommendations to slow the outbreak, and the Caldwell County Schools will continue to adhere to local, state and federal guidelines to provide a safe and healthy school environment.

    While North Carolina public schools – including the Caldwell County School System – are closed until May 15, as directed by Governor Roy Cooper, the school district will provide nutritional support to its students. The Child Nutrition Department has developed a plan to ensure that meals are distributed to students.

    Five-day packages of breakfast and lunch meals will be distributed for 18 year-olds and younger at Gamewell Elementary, Granite Falls Elementary, Hudson Elementary, and Valmead Elementary from 11-1pm and 4-6 pm. Students are not required to be present to receive free meals in the drive-thru distribution program provided by the Caldwell County Schools Child Nutrition Department.

    Free meals will continue to be delivered and distributed during school closure through May 15. We are here to help with the needs of our children and youth in Caldwell County!

    Families with transportation challenges or other extenuating circumstances may contact their school's administrative office to arrange for food delivery.

    The school system is working closely with its community and faith-based partners to provide additional resources and meals to families that may need assistance.

    In summary, Food Distribution Schedule at this time:


    Gamewell Elementary
    Hudson Elementary
    Valmead Elementary
    Granite Falls Elementary

    Times: 11 am - 1 pm and 4 pm - 6 pm
