Updated: Mar 25

Submitted to Branson Globe

Hollister Schools are continuing to work closely with the Taney County Health Department and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to monitor COVID-19, the impact it is having on our area, and how we can best protect and serve our students.

We know that the upcoming school closure is going to have an impact on the learning of all students and will have an impact on students who depend on the school to provide quality meals that are essential for their daily nutrition.

It is with much planning and consideration that we are able to make the following announcements:

Meal Distribution

Free brown bag breakfast and lunch will be available for pick up on Sunday through Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. beginning Sunday, March 22. Families will be able to get one breakfast sack and one lunch sack for each student in their household per day.

Distribution locations

Commuter lot on corner of 86 highway

OTC parking lot

U-Haul parking lot at All About Me Hair Salon

Fire Station on BB highway

Hollister High School Commons (use student entrance)

Gobbler’s Knob Trailer Court

Device Distribution

Parents of students K-12 will be able to pick up their student’s Chromebook or iPad for use at home if the student does not already have access to the use of a computer or iPad.

Parents will be required to sign a check out form.

Families without internet may utilize the guest wifi in the school parking lot using password: tigerstripes.

Devices are to be returned once school resumes.
