This is an important update regarding school meals. We want to thank all our students and families who have participated in our school meals program during the COVID-19 school closure. To date, we have served over 40,000 meals to our students. It has been our privilege to serve our students during these challenging times.

Week of June 8
The week of June 8 will be our last week of bus delivered meals. We will serve meals Monday-Thursday this week as we have done at the bus stop locations and at Hayes and Fridley High School. On Thursday, June 11, we will provide 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches to each child. 

Beginning Monday, June 15
Starting on Monday, June 15, we will serve curbside meals at Stevenson, Hayes, and Fridley High School from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM, Monday-Friday. Please pick up your meal from the main entrance at Stevenson or Hayes, or by door 15 at Fridley High School. There is no charge for meals and any child age 1-18 years-old can receive a meal. Parents can also pick up a meal for their child/ren. We will be serving individually packaged lunch and breakfast meals. There will be daily choices of a hot or cold entrée and all meals will include a fruit, vegetable, milk and grains. Please remember that meals will not be consumed on site, so once you pick up your meal, you may take it with you. 

We look forward to serving our students and community during the summer. Please check out our Facebook page for weekly menus. 

Thank you and have a great summer!

Fridley School Board member Mary Kay Delvo, who has served on the Board since 2012, has announced her intent to resign effective June 30. She has been serving as Board Chair since January 2020. 

Citing a growing business, Delvo said that she is grateful for the growth, but acknowledged that the demands of her full-time job would impact her ability to give the Board the full attention that it deserves.  

“I love this school district and community, so this was a difficult decision,” said Delvo, adding that throughout her tenure, she has experienced and been involved in many positive changes that she knows benefit students every day. “I made this decision with a deep sense of appreciation that the district has an incredible leader in Superintendent Dr. Hiel, who, together with her administration, will continue to work hard for our students and families.” 

Superintendent Dr. Kim Hiel said Delvo’s leadership has been appreciated. “As a Board member, Mary Kay’s leadership, and skills in strategic planning, have greatly supported the work of the district,” said Dr. Hiel.

Delvo joined the Board in 2012 and has since served in multiple leadership roles, including three times as Board Chair, and as the Board representative for the teachers, custodial and nutrition services bargaining groups. She also represented Fridley on the Northeast Metro 916 Intermediate School Board for three years, Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD), and was the legislative delegate for the Minnesota School Board Association (MSBA).

Reflecting on her 8-year tenure on the Fridley School Board, Delvo shared that one of things she is most proud of was leading the superintendent search in 2018.

“The most important responsibility of a School Board is to hire the right leader for their school district,” said Delvo. “As the Board Chair who ran the search in 2018, this is one of the accomplishments I am proudest of because we nailed it when we hired Dr. Hiel. We (the School Board) felt her experience and expertise were exactly what Fridley needed. Based on what has been achieved under her leadership over the last two years, the Board chose well.” 

Additionally, Delvo is proud of several district achievements that have been accomplished during her tenure, which include a Board-approved equity policy; the addition of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Career-related Programme that allows students to immerse in career related programs while still in high school; and two referendums that were approved by the Fridley community. 

“The Fridley community has been a steadfast supporter of our schools,” said Delvo. “And the trust and confidence our community has in the district, and our administration’s ability to meet the needs of our students, is always humbling and appreciated.”  

With Delvo's resignation, a new chair will be voted in at the July 21 school board meeting.  The School Board will appoint a new member in the coming weeks who will serve on the board until a new member is elected in November to serve out the rest of Delvo's term. 

We thank Board Member Delvo for her many years of service to Fridley Public Schools and wish her the best in her career.
