BISD closes indefinitely, changes child nutrition program

Breckenridge ISD announced the indefinite closure of the district and its campuses Tuesday, March 31, in a release from Interim Superintendent Earl Jarrett.

“When public health officials determine that school can safely reopen, the Breckenridge ISD community will be notified with sufficient time to plan to return to school,” the release stated.

The announcement was made shortly after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott extended the closure of school campuses around the state until Monday, May 4.

According to a press release by BISD, “All Breckenridge ISD campuses will continue to provide instruction in the most effective manner possible during the closing.”

The Texas Department of Agriculture has also changed rules and will no longer allow BISD to provide meals during weekends. Effective Monday, April 6, BISD will serve meals out of the back of the high school.

“We will have one feeding site at the back of the Breckenridge High School,” Mark Nelson, BISD Director of Child Nutrition said. “Students are asked to stay inside their vehicles and the food will be bought out to you.”

These are drive-thru meals only and service hours will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday.
