Resources During COVID-19
Breakfast and lunch will be served at no cost to BART students on the days they attend in person. Remote learners and their guardians have the option to pick up a free meal at any number of sites throughout the region, regardless of which school they/their student(s) attends.
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Project Bread will continue to publish open meal sites on Project Bread’s summer meal site finder to expand access to meals for remote learners.

Mental Health Information
HandholdMA.org is a new website designed for parents who are worried about their children’s mental health. The website, created by a team of mental health and child development experts in partnership with parents who have “been there,” was designed for parents of school-aged children in Massachusetts.
Handhold has three main sections:
· Should I worry? Helps parents explore if their kid is just being a kid, or if their behavior is something to worry about. Parents can learn about signs to look for and get suggestions on what to do next.
· What can I do? Tips, tools, and strategies that have worked for other families, sorted by topic, and picked by Handhold. These are things parents can learn about or do from home.
· Who can help? Carefully selected community organizations and government resources to help families find the right mental health services.
