    • Student Meal Pick - Up Changes

      Starting Monday, April 6, Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) students can pick up a week’s worth of “grab and go” meals in fewer visits.

      Meal pick-up will occur twice a week going forward. Students can get meals for two days on Mondays and three days on Wednesdays. There will be no meal service on Monday, April 13 due to spring break. Service will resume Tuesday, April 14 with one meal; three meals will be available on Wednesday, April 15.

      Breakfast, lunch and a snack are available at 43 sites, including Laurel Elementary. Parents may now pick up meals for students who are unable to come to the site by showing  a student ID or report card.

      Meals are available from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Parents and guardians are not required to accompany students nor are students required to show ID. 

      The full list of sites is available below and at

      Dear Students and Families,

      During the statewide school closures, students can pick up breakfast, lunch and a snack at numerous sites throughout the county, including our school. We encourage you to come to L.E.S. weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for “grab and go” meals in the cafeteria or parking lot depending on the weather. 

      Students may pick up all three meals in one visit. Parents and guardians are not required to accompany students. Adults may not pick up meals for children. Student IDs are not required.

      The enrichment activity packets are also online at We will send a message once the packets are ready for students to pick up from the school.
