Free Meals for Students (English) (Spanish)

SB Unified is providing grab-and-go breakfast and lunches to students ages 18 and younger Monday through Friday 11:30am to 1:00pm at these GRAB-AND-GO-SITES. We will continue serving lunches throughout school closure. Students do not have to be present. Their parent/guardian may pick up a meal on the student’s behalf. 

Our Technology Department is prepared to offer telephone assistance during this time. If we cannot answer, please leave a voice message, and we’ll contact you as soon as possible. Our team can offer assistance in Spanish.

  • WiFi: Thanks to a partnership with Cox Communications, we are offering assistance to our families who need WiFi to access online learning. Call 805-696-2700 for support in English/Spanish with this process.
  • iPads: We have iPads for every 3rd-12th grade student and are working to get all PK-2 students one as well. If a student's iPad is broken or lost, we can supply you with a new one. Call 805-696-2700 for support in English/Spanish.
  • ParentSquare: We communicate with our families in both English and Spanish through Parentsquare. If a parent has any trouble with this, they can call us at 805-696-2700.
