Beginning Monday, Nov. 2 all Round Rock ISD students will receive breakfast and lunch at no charge for the duration of the school year. The transition to no cost meal service comes as a result of the District applying for a waiver issued nationwide from USDA allowing the Seamless Summer Option to operate during the 2020-2021 School Year. This waiver provides the choice for Texas contracting entities to operate the National School Lunch Program or the summer feeding program.
Free meals will be offered to all on-campus and virtual learning students. Additionally, any child age 18 and under may also pick up a free breakfast and lunch at any of the curbside locations during meal distribution.
Round Rock ISD will continue curbside meal distribution for virtual learners and children under 18 until further notice. Meal service time will remain from 7 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Starting Nov. 2, Curbside meal distribution sites are:
Round Rock High School, 201 Deep Wood Dr., Round Rock
Cedar Ridge High School, 2801 Gattis School Rd., Round Rock
Stony Point High School, 1801 Tiger Trail, Round Rock
Westwood High School, 12400 Mellow Meadow Dr., Austin
McNeil High School, 5720 McNeil Dr., Austin
Deerpark Middle School, 8849 Anderson Mill Rd., Austin
C.D. Fulkes Middle School, 300 W Anderson Ave., Round Rock
Hopewell Middle School, 1535 Gulf Way, Round Rock
Walsh Middle School, 3850 Walsh Ranch Blvd., Round Rock
In alignment with the District’s Academic Calendar, meal distribution sites will not be open on District scheduled breaks and holidays.
As a result of a waiver approved by the U.S Department of Agriculture, children are no longer required to be present to receive a meal. However, as stated by the Texas Department of Agriculture, parents or guardians must provide proof for each child in order to receive the meal during each visit as districts are required to verify the number. Acceptable methods of proof include an official letter or email from the school confirming the child’s enrollment, individual student report cards, attendance records from the parent portal of the school’s website, birth certificate, or student ID cards.
Although meal service will be at no cost for the remainder of the school year, families are still encouraged to submit the application for the Free and Reduced meal program. Approved applicants receive benefits, such as waived college application fees, waived SAT fees and discounts on online SAT courses. It also helps ensure that campuses receive additional funding and that during next school year that students will be able to take advantage of the 30 day benefits carryover period, allowing families more time to submit their yearly application.
