Lake Travis ISD and Eanes ISD started the 2020-21 school year Aug. 19 with all students learning from home until at least Sept. 8 in accordance with Travis County orders.

Though students are not permitted on campus, both districts resumed meal services through a drive-thru method organized at four campuses.

Packaged breakfast and lunch will be available for pickup Monday through Friday from 8:30-10:30 a.m. at Lake Travis Elementary School, Serene Hills Elementary School, Bee Cave Middle School and Lake Travis Middle School.

EISD will also offer lunches from 11:20 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the Forest Trail Elementary School bus drop-off location.

Students at both districts will be charged in accordance with the district’s standard food and nutrition services pricing, with the exception of students eligible for free or reduced lunch.


Following a U.S. Department of Agriculture decision March 26, children are no longer required to be present for a parent or guardian to obtain the meal. Previously, children would have to be present in order to receive meals.

With guidance from the USDA, parents are now able to present a child’s school identification, attendance record, report card or official school application to obtain the meals.

According to a statement from LTISD Food and Nutrition Services, parents or children will need to exit their vehicles to make food selections in person. However, visitors will be required to follow school protocols for face coverings and social distancing.

EISD parents are instructed not to leave their vehicles, according to district information.
