The Gilbertsville-Mount Upton Central School District will deliver food to families with students in its free and reduced-cost meals program while school is closed.

GMU started food deliveries today (March 18, 2020), to cover student needs Wednesday through Friday this week. Beginning Monday, March 23, five days' worth of food will be delivered to qualifying students every Monday during the closure.

GMU will follow all standard operating procedures and safety guidelines related to food deliveries. Should school resume Tuesday, April 14, as scheduled, no deliveries will take place Monday, April 13.

Food deliveries come at no cost to families. Those who need assistance providing meals for their children during the closure should call the school at 607-783-2207 for help.

Students who need items from their lockers or classrooms are allowed to enter the school from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. today through this Friday. Students should use the main entrance and must follow all social distancing and hygiene rules while inside the school building.

Please note that plans can change at any moment, especially if state or federal mandates are enacted. Further updates, if any, will be shared via our website (, our social media pages (@GMU Central on Facebook and Twitter) and telephone calls.
