Socorro ISD to adjust meal service to increase social distancing

Officials in Socorro ISD announced Saturday a change to the way meals are distributed throughout the district, so as to keep parents and students safe from COVID19.

Beginning Monday, April 20 for the distribution of meals at schools in the district, Child Nutrition Services employees will be placing the meals in trunks or back seats of vehicles in order to increase social distancing measures.

“Team SISD is proud to offer the free meal program to children 18 years and younger in our community during the school closure due to the coronavirus pandemic,” SISD officials added.

Please note the following guidelines/notes:

  • Parents are asked to remain in vehicle and open the trunk or back of vehicle.
  • If in a truck or SUV, where back cannot be opened, CNS employees will provide the meal to the family on a tray to lessen unnecessary contact or the meal can be placed in the back seat if unoccupied.
  • If possible, please place a box or bin in your trunk, which will help hold the meal bags upright and keep the integrity of the meal.
