THE Public School System will now require  students to present their school IDs before they can avail themselves of the “Grab and Go” meal program, Education Commissioner Dr. Alfred Ada said.

“No card, no meals,” he said, adding that the meals are budgeted for students only in school year 2020-2021.

On Thursday, Marianas High School vice principal Melanie Rdiall said they started distributing IDs to more than 1,500 students.

“In the past, when we were doing face-to-face instruction, the children got their meals in schools,” she said in a phone interview. “Because we are going online in September and children are staying in their homes, the students need to present their school IDs to get the meals.”

She said the ID distribution will continue on Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

MHS students can get their meals in either Oleai Elementary School, Dandan Middle School or Garapan Elementary School.

As of Thursday, Rdiall said  1,509 students had registered at MHS. Registration, however, is still ongoing.

Once schools are allowed to provide in-person instruction and activities, she said they will allow up to 10 students only per classroom.
