Lewisville ISD will offer free curbside meals on weekdays while its campuses are closed through Jan. 30 because of a staffing shortage related to the COVID-19 surge.

Six campuses will be open for meal pickup from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 26 through Jan. 28 while the district is closed, according to the district. The meals are available at Vickery, Mill Street, Lewisville, Southridge, Camey and Polser elementary schools.


If a student is not present at the time of meal pickup then a student ID card or other identification must be provided, according to the district. Other forms of identification include an official letter or email from the school listing the child’s enrollment, a student report card, an attendance record from the parent portal, a birth certificate or student ID card.

Children 18 years old and under who are not students at LISD qualify for the free meal, according to the district. Those students must either be present to pick up the meals or identification documents must be provided.
