A Message From the Director

Texas Serenity Academy prioritizes Child Nutrition and the well-being of our students. It is our mission to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of each student. With the leadership and guidance from the Texas Department of Agriculture and local health authorities, we are confident that our procedures will afford us the opportunity to continue our food services program, maintain social distancing protocols, as well as focusing on safety and sanitation.

 

Curbside Meals (for enrolled students only)

Students DO NOT have to be present. Parents/Guardians MUST provide proof of identification.

Proof of Identification includes:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Student ID #
  • Copy of report Card (returning students)

We will provide curbside meals on Tuesday and Thursday and the district is working diligently to best service our families. Although we are not able to provide meal delivery at this time, we believe that providing meals during the week is the best course of action and provides our students the opportunity to receive quality and nutritous meals.

Prepackaged meals will be provided during these times. Each pick-up will include both breakfast and lunch which will be labeled for accuracy. Upon arrival, all occupants must remain in the vehicle. An TSA employee or staff will place all designated meals in the trunk of the vehicle.

Breakfast will include the following:

  • One entree
  • One cup of fruit
  • Choice of milk (1 percent or fat-free chocolate)

Lunch will include the following:

  • One entree
  • One-half cup of fruit
  • One cup of vegetables
  • Choice of milk (1 percent or fat-free chocolate)

 

Service Schedule

  • Tuesday: 9:00am to 11am
    • Packages will include meals for both Tuesday and Wednesday
  • Thursday: 9:00am to 11am
    • Packages will include meals for Thursday, Friday and Monday

(*This process may be updated.)

 

Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

Texas Serenity Academy continues to provide meals to students at no cost to families. This is made possible by the The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 provides local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools in low-income areas with an alternative approach for operating school meal programs. Instead of collecting individual applications for free and reduced-price meals, CEP allows LEAs and schools meeting the eligibility requirements to use information from other means-tested programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Temporary Assistance Program for Needy Families (TANF).
