Free Meals Offered For Children Ages 1-18 In Saltillo ISD Community
Saltillo ISD today via their official Facebook page announced school will remain closed until April 3, with all extracurricular activities and practices canceled as well, due to COVID-19 concerns. The district also will be implementing a meal program for all children in the Saltillo ISD community ages 1-18 starting Monday, March 23.
While Saltillo ISD is scheduled to remain closed until April 3, the SISD Board of Trustees will meet April 2, to reevaluate the situation to determine whether classes will resume at the school campus. Updates regarding Saltillo ISD will continue to be made via the school app, Facebook, and the school phone messaging system.
Saltillo ISD will also provide a daily breakfast/lunch combo to those who want to participate. The side awning will be used as a drive-thru meal pick up location. Those who are unable to pick up meals may call the school to try to assist families. Any child between ages 1-18 years, who resides in the Saltillo community, is eligible for free meals.
Parents may make a request for meals for each of their children daily by emailing [email protected] or [email protected], calling 903-537-2386 or texting 903-951-8552. Parents are asked to make the request each day between 7:30 and 9 a.m. for their children. While not required, this will help the Saltillo iSD child nutrition department better plan each day.
Meal pick up will be 9-11 a.m. beginning Monday, March 23.
“Your child MUST be with you to receive a meal. State law mandates that the child/children are present during meal pick-ups. The Texas Education Agency has asked for a waiver for this requirement, however, it had not been approved as of March 18, 2020. If this changes we will let you know,” SISD stated in their announcement for the meal program.
The district Facebook page due have an option for people to contact Saltillo ISD officials via messenger.
