Some employees are getting up to $2,500 handed to them on Friday, and it's not just teachers who are getting the bonus.

"Bus drivers that were initially delivering the meals to our students, our food workers that were out at the campuses when everyone was at home," said a district official. "Everyone in the district has gone above and beyond this past year more than ever."

School officials say the program has been so well received they are already planning future distributions.
