Dallas County this week ordered a shelter in place, requiring all individuals to shelter at their residences except for certain essential activities. This order does not prohibit Garland ISD from continuing to serve meals to students during school closures.
GISD will continue to offer curbside meal sites, which will be open from 8-9 a.m. for breakfast pick-up and from noon-1 p.m. for lunch pick-up.
According to the Garland ISD Student Nutrition Services Facebook page, the district served nearly 27,000 curbside meals to their communities during the first week of the COVID-19 school closures.
Families can stay in their cars to pick up meals curbside at the front of designated campus sites. One meal will be provided for each child who is present and under 19 years of age.
Any GISD student under the age of 19 who attends any campus in GISD may pick up a meal.

Back Elementary, 7300 Bluebonnet Drive
