With Round Rock ISD classes beginning 100% virtually Aug. 20, the district announced Aug. 10 it will also resume its curbside meal services for students on the first day of school. For services provided during the first three weeks of the school year, families are asked to fill out an online meal form and request services by Aug. 17.

If 100% virtual learning continues past the anticipated three-week time frame, families will not be asked to fill out an additional meal order form. Distribution sites for virtual learning students may change as in-person learning resumes, the release added.

Parents who do not fill out an online meal form for their student are still allowed to pick up meals and must have their student's ID or a district document that includes their child's ID number available during the pickup process.

Meal distribution services will be held Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.-noon, per the email. Meal distributions will provide lunch and breakfast for the following day as part of the process. Families are asked to write their student's ID on a piece of paper and place it on their car's dashboard during the pickup process.

Families that do not qualify for free meals will be required to pay for meals, according to the release. Breakfast and lunch fees for students who qualify for the reduced program are listed at $0.30 and $0.40, respectively.


For families that are not part of the free and reduced meals program, the following prices will apply to their meal distributions: $1.50 for breakfast at all levels, $2.80 for elementary school lunch, and $3.05 for middle and high school lunch.

Funding can be added to a student's lunch account here as well as via cash and check payments made curbside.
