Meal pickup and additional resources during school closure

Written by Chicago International Charter School

Dear CICS families,

I am writing to follow up with additional details regarding access to student meals during the school closure. 

In partnership with our food service provider, Aramark, CICS will have free ‘grab and go’ lunch + breakfast for students.  We want to reassure you that there will be no change to CICS 'food service. Drive-through meal pickup will continue to be available throughout the school closure at all CICS elementary schools on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 am to 1 pm. Alternatively, meals can be picked up at most CPS schools from 9 am to 1 pm daily or for CPS delivery call (773) 553-5437 or contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

There is no student ID or proof of address required to receive these meals. All meals will be distributed outside of the school building by food service staff; no students or family members will be permitted to enter the building.

Location: All CICS campuses (NOTE: You can go to whichever CICS campus is most convenient for you; you do not need to pick up meals from the campus you attend. Go to https://www.chicagointl.org/campuses for a map and complete list of CICS campuses.)

CICS Meal Pickup Locations weekdays (Mon. Wed. and Fri. from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.)

We hope these meal pickup options help alleviate some of the burden that school closure places on our families. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Chicago Department of Public Health advises everyone to stay home. If that is not an option, all Chicago parks and park fieldhouses, with the exception of our smallest facilities and CPS school parks, will remain open during normal operating hours for basic needs (i.e. washrooms and shelter).

In response to Chicago schools closing, the District will provide enhanced programming at 18 designated parks (see map below for exact locations). Families in need of these services can expect age-appropriate activities for students. It is important to note, the District must limit capacity at each location to 250 in order to combat the community spread of COVID-19. 

We will continue to share information and resources with our families as it becomes available, and will post the most updated information on our website at www.chicagointl.org. If you have questions or need additional support, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call our main office at 312-651-5000. You will receive a response within 24 hours.

Thank you,
