Cy-Fair ISD Superintendent Mark Henry announced today that students can pick up curbside meals at several campuses located throughout the district starting Monday, March 16, while schools are closed because of coronavirus concerns.

  • Breakfast will be available from 7:30-9:30 a.m.

  • Lunch will be available from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

These campuses include:

Goodson Middle School will be added to the list starting Tuesday, March 17. Children 18 and younger will be able to pick up meals at any campus listed no matter which school they attend.

While schools are closed next week, extended learning resources will be available at www.cfisd.net, according to Henry’s statement.

Parents will also be able to access any of their children’s medications that may still be on campuses by contacting CFISD’s police department at 281-897-2373.

UIL contests are suspended through March 29 with plans to complete the competitive season for academics, athletics and fine arts later this spring, Henry said.


The annual Superintendent’s Fun Run & Festival scheduled for March 21 has been canceled. Donations made will still benefit student scholarships, and Henry said T-shirts purchased would be distributed at a later date.

Officials with Cy-Fair ISD announced March 12 that all district campuses and facilities would be closed next week as a precautionary measure in the wake of coronavirus. This announcement comes a day after Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo signed an emergency declaration for the county.

“Although there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in CFISD, in an abundance of caution, CFISD, along with most neighboring school districts, will close all schools and facilities next week,” Superintendent Mark Henry said in a statement March 12.

All before- and after-school care programs, extracurricular activities and field trips for students are canceled effective immediately. District employees are being asked not to report to work effective at 4 p.m. March 13. All buildings, including the Berry Center, will be closed to outside rentals during this time.

As of the March 12 announcement, district officials plan to resume normal operations on Monday, March 23, but said they are actively monitoring the situation and are in communication with local, state and federal officials.

“It is paramount that we protect the health of our students, our staff and our community,” Henry said. “It takes all of us working together to ensure healthy learning environments.”
