Temporary Closure Settlement School

Meskwaki Settlement School

Starting Thursday, March 19th the Meskwaki Settlement School, including offices, will be closed.   However, the elementary and middle/high schools will be open this Wednesday, March 18th from 2-6pm to allow students to retrieve essential items (like medication, laptops, etc.).  If you need to get your child’s medication, an authorized adult MUST sign for it.  It cannot be given to children.  We are in the process of sanitizing our buildings, so access should be quick and targeted to retrieve only the items you need.  Communication regarding academic support will be sent home from the school later today.  Families may utilize the email directory located on the school’s webpage to connect with staff during the closing.

Grab-N-Go School Lunch Pick-Up

Starting Monday, April 12th,  there will be a change to our curbside lunch distribution. In order to decrease the number of times that families have to go out to get lunches, we will be covering multiple days with less lunch pick-ups. Our lunch pick-ups will now only be on Mondays and Thursdays. The Monday lunches will have enough food to cover Monday through Wednesday and the Thursday lunches will cover Thursday and Friday.

So starting next week, we will begin our curbside lunch pick-ups on Monday and Thursday only from 11 am – 12 pm. Just a reminder that meals CAN ONLY BE PROVIDED TO THE CHILD. Simply arrive WITH YOUR CHILDREN (ages 18 or younger) to the elementary school front entrance curb and we will bring the lunches to you. Stay Safe!!

MNR Buffalo Meat Distribution @ Meskwaki Tribal Center Front Entrance
Nov 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Meskwaki Natural Resources is excited to announcement the first buffalo meat distribution of the season! The Covid-19 pandemic caused many supply chain disruptions throughout the year and food security needs became more crucial and apparent than ever before. We are excited to be able to offer the Meskwaki Community a source of buffalo meat. Due to many disruptions however, MNR was only able to harvest about one third of what is typically done in a year. With that, we ask that you still bring reusable grocery bags to reduce the dependency on single use plastic, but we will not be offering an additional pound of meat for doing so. We want to ensure as many households gain access to this opportunity as possible. Finally, we ask that everyone in attendance wear a mask and to social distance while in line, and do not come if you are experiencing any covid-19 symptoms. Thank you to the community for the support year after year to help make this distribution a success! We hope to see you there!

Buffalo Meat Distribution for Seniors and Elders @ Meskwaki Senior Services
Dec 1 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
Buffalo Meat Distribution for Seniors and Elders @ Meskwaki Senior Services | Tama | Iowa | United States

On Tuesday, December 1st Meskwaki Natural Resources is partnering with Senior Services to provide buffalo meat to seniors and elders who were not able to access meat through the regular meat distribution. Due to the high demand and low quantities of meat, MNR set aside meat for seniors and elders to ensure they are provided a share of buffalo meat without risking covid-19 exposures or running out of meat early. The distribution will take place at the Seniors starting at 11:30am and will end at 12:30pm. This special distribution is for SENIORS and ELDERS ONLY to ensure they get a share of meat from our 2020 meat supply. Those that qualify to get meat through this special distribution include: Home bound seniors and elders, Seniors or elders that did not have relatives pick up meat for them, Seniors or elders that did not receive meat because the distribution ran out of supplies. If your name is on the list from the November 19th distribution, you do not qualify for a share of meat through Senior Services.
