South Texas Independent School District (STISD) is committed to the nourishment of children within the local communities, and the district continues to serve meals for children 18 and under.
The district will be modifying its curbside pick-up schedule for meals the week of May 25, 2020. For that week only, the district will serve bundles of meals to the community on Tuesday, May 26, and Thursday, May 28, only.
Packs of grab-and-go breakfast and lunch meals will be available for pick-up by parents between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. each day. Families will receive enough breakfast and lunch meals to serve their children Tuesday through Friday.
The following week, the district will go back to serving meals on Mondays and Wednesdays only. These meals are provided at no cost to the family, and children do not have to be enrolled within STISD to receive meals.
STISD will continue the curbside pick-up process at the four campuses where meals are currently being served:
Edinburg: Gateway to the World Library parking lot- located between South Texas ISD Preparatory Academy and South Texas ISD World Scholars (510 S. Sugar Rd., Edinburg)
Mercedes: South Texas ISD Health Professions (100 Med High Drive, Mercedes) - loop between Health Professions and Science Academy
Olmito: South Texas ISD Medical Professions (10650 N Expressway 77/83, Olmito) - south side parking lot of the campus, first entrance off of the frontage road
San Benito: South Texas ISD Rising Scholars Academy (151 S. Helen Moore Rd., San Benito)- parking lot off of Paso Real, in front of cafeteria
To allow for the packaging of several days’ worth of meals, the district will serve meals that can be refrigerated and warmed up. Instructions for storing and reheating will be provided along with each meal.
