Even though classes have been canceled for the third day in a row at the Tukwila School District, there will still be some resources available to students.

According to a press release from the district, if there are students in need of assistance that would normally be provided by their school, some of those needs will still be met.

The release stated there is an invitation to the Tukwila Food Pantry, which is provided by the Riverton Park United Methodist Church, 3118 South 140th Street.

“The last thing we want to do is cause undue harm to our students. It is what we fight against every day,” said Reverend Jan Bolerjack, who is also the school board director for District 2. “My church’s pantry can fill in a gap during this time when they may need it most. We are happy to open our doors to the families and students of Tukwila if they need help.”

The Tukwila School District also posted on Facebook this afternoon that if school is still not back in session next week, a free lunch program will be provided by Chartwells, the district’s food services partner.

The district’s “food truck” will be located at Cascade View Park, 14211 37th Avenue South in Tukwila, Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

The district and the Tukwila Education Association are back to bargaining today. If an agreement is reached today, the press release said there will be a discussion about how to handle the transition to start the school year.

Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
