Hempstead ISD Will Offer Free Curbside Meal ServiceHempstead ISD (HISD) and Southwest Foodservice Excellence will prepare and distribute meals for our students starting March 16 to 20 while schools are closed due to COVID-19 concerns. During the week, FREE sack breakfast and lunch meals will be available to any child 18 years of age or under via curbside pickup at Hempstead Elementary from 9:00am-11:30am.Here’s how curbside meal service will work:• Meals will be handed out at the back circle drive at the elementary school, located near the gym.• Please enter from 11th St. onto Peebles. Hempstead Police will be directing traffic.• In order to expedite and provide safe service to all, please stay in your vehicles.• Children must be present to receive the meals; child does not need to be enrolled.• There will not be meals available for adults.This is a rapidly evolving situation and HISD continues to be in constant contact with state and local health officials as well as the Texas Education Agency. We will provide HISD status updates as needed. Thank you for your support as we work together to keep everyone in our community healthy.
