Meals Over the Weekend - CCSD
In an effort to provide proper nutrition to our students every day, Clark County School District (CCSD) Food Distribution sites are making additional meals available to students on Fridays. Beginning October 9, 2020, families will be provided with three breakfasts and three lunches per child to ensure they have meals for the weekend.
CCSD offers free school meals to all children 2 - 18 years of age.
Students may pick up meals at any food site. A student’s parent/guardian may also pick up meals for students without the child present during the meal pickup.
Meal sites may be found online at ccsd.nutrislice.com.

Resident Recovery Opportunities
The City of Henderson just released our “Resident Recovery Grants”. Residents financially impacted by COVID-19 can complete one application to receive a grant for utilities assistance, childcare costs, and the cost of internet services for education. The link for the application and website are listed below. Applicants must be residents of the City of Henderson and funds are paid directly to the resident and it is taxable so they will be required to complete a W-9.
Resident Recovery Grants:
In addition to this assistance Henderson also has a housing assistance program to help with rent/mortgage payments. The program allows for payment of rent, mortgage, and utilities arrears back to March 1, 2020, as well as utility deposits, security deposits and emergency lodging. Payments for services are made directly to a landlord, mortgage company and/or utility company.
Also for families who need childcare and/or remote learning assistance we also are running our full day childcare/distance learning program – Battle Born Kids/Teens. In this program students are provided with time and space to participate in distance learning and parents receive a log at the end of each day that outlines what their child completed and what may still need to be completed at home. The program is $20/day and the registration link is below:
