Social and Emotional Supports

While these are very difficult times that are definitely unforeseen by anyone, we remain concerned about the emotional well-being of our students, staff and community. Walled Lake Schools gathered and reviewed each of these sites that offer amazing resources for this trying time. Thank you for using these resources to help children and adults.

Food Distribution

On August 31st, the USDA announced that they have extended free meals for all kids under the age of 18 to go through as late as December 31st regardless if they are an enrolled student or not. This is effective immediately and will undoubtedly help our community during these unprecedented times! 

Please join us weekly on Monday's at each of our high schools to pick up meals from 12 - 1:30 p.m.

*Reminder if there is no school on Monday food distribution will take during the next school day*
