The office of Rep Ana-Maria Ramos is working closely with local & state officials to provide the community with the most up-to-date info about the COVID-19.
School District Closures
To reduce the health risk to staff preparing and serving meals, as well as parents and students picking up meals, RISD meal service sites are now operating three days a week, while still serving enough meals to feed students Monday through Friday.
Garland wants to make sure all students have access to meals during the district’s closure, so they will be providing meals three times a day.
While Dallas ISD is closed for the summer break, students will continue to receive grab-and-go meal service at no cost through, at least, through June 30. Discussions to extend meal service beyond June continue to develop, and more information will be provided when available.
