Student Meals EMS ISD will be serving “grab and go” meals for students throughout the closure. Beginning Tuesday, March 17, EMS ISD Child Nutrition will be providing breakfast and lunch meals for students ages 18 or younger. Meal bags will be served as a curb-side pickup at the following locations:

  • Northbrook Elementary
  • Gililland Elementary
  • Saginaw Elementary
  • Dozier Elementary
  • Highland Middle School
  • Marine Creek Middle School

Child nutrition staff will bundle lunch and breakfast together for pick up between 11 am- 1 pm on weekdays so that students get lunch for the current day and will already have their breakfast for the next morning.  

Due to federal program requirements, a student must be present to receive a meal. Additionally, the health department requires school-based meals to be prepared and served by certified child nutrition personnel, and our EMS ISD Child Nutrition staff is fully prepared to make sure the children in our community are well fed during this school closure. We know that families may have additional needs and we are grateful for other community organizations such as Community Link Mission and local churches and faith-based agencies that are providing meals, food, and other necessities. If you have questions or recommendations for support, please contact any of these organizations or the EMS ISD Child Nutrition Department, 817-232-0880.
