Tomball ISD announced in a letter to families June 22 that its final curbside meal distribution of the summer has been canceled for June 24 out of an abundance of caution.

"The decision to cancel was due to several factors, including a confirmed COVID-19 case within our school community, rising cases across the area and potential threat of inclement weather," Superintendent Martha Salazar-Zamora wrote. "Tomball ISD has worked hard to make sure proper protocols are put in place to ensure the health and safety of our staff and families during curbside meal distribution over the last several months."

TISD has been serving meals to families since mid-March, when school facilities closed to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Since April 1, meal distribution has happened every Wednesday at Tomball High School.



Families can visit the U.S. Department of Agriculture's website to find where free meals may be offered near them.


Magnolia ISD announced earlier in June that it would extend its curbside meal service through Aug. 11, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
