Harlingen CISD continues to provide breakfast and lunch meal pick up for all children 18 and younger.
Parents and guardians of any child 18 years old or younger may pick up the grab-and-go breakfast and lunch at any of the district’s eight distribution locations. These free meals are offered to all children.
All campuses and meal distributions will be closed in observance of the Easter holiday break on Friday, April 10, 2020 and Monday, April 13. Upon our return on Tuesday, April 14, HCISD will be consolidating the meal distribution to eight sites and two days. Our HCISD families will receive multiple meals for the entire school week during the two-day distribution process.
After Easter break, meals will be distributed at Memorial Middle School, Vernon Middle School, Vela Middle School, Gutierrez Middle School, Harlingen High School, Harlingen High School South, Lamar Elementary, and Treasure Hills Elementary.
For the week of April 14 through April 17, meals will be distributed Tuesday and Thursdays.
Beginning April 20, meals will be distributed on Mondays and Wednesday.
Harlingen CISD mailed official letters to each parent and guardian within the district outlining our updated food distribution process. While children are no longer required to visit feeding sites, parents or guardians must provide proof for each child that qualifies for meal services during each visit. The letter serves as a valid form detailing each child’s enrollment in the district. Other acceptable forms include students report cards, attendance records from the parent portal of the school’s website, birth certificates for children not enrolled in school, or a student’s school identification card. No documentation is required if the student is present.
HCISD essential staff working to distribute the meals will be located in areas to ensure they practice social and physical distancing as recommended by the CDC. Fever checks are conducted throughout the day to ensure that no essential staff member is displaying symptoms of illness.
HCISD continues to stress the importance of limiting social interactions for the safety and continued health of families and the community.
