Summer lunch program begins June 8th!

Our summer lunch program begins Monday, June 8th, with meals served at various sites around the school district. The program runs Monday through Friday for eight weeks, ending on Friday, July 31st. For more information about the program, including a listing of sites, the schedule of meal deliveries to each one, and daily menus, please visit our Summer Lunch Program website. Please also keep in mind that we will be maintaining COVID-19 social distancing requirements at each site, which means participants do not have to remain at the site to consume their meals.

Cross Country a great athletics option

The ZHS and ZMS cross country teams welcome all interested athletes seeking a sport where you always get to participate. High school runners compete at 3.1 miles (5 kilometers) and middle school runners compete at 2 miles.
