The national school lunch/breakfast program forms will be available 30 days before school begins every year. You may pick up a form at your child’s school campus or at the Administration Building, 700 N. Catherine.


If a new form has not been received in the School Nutrition Office by the 30th operating day after school begins, students will be removed from the program without notice.


Terrell ISD operates a “closed campus” for lunch (all students are required to stay on campus at lunch time). Parents or students may PRE-PAY for meals and/or snacks at any time. PRE-PAID amounts are put on students account. You may PRE-PAY money for several students at different campuses or all at one time, at one campus kitchen, through our Food Service Computer Network.


The School Nutrition Department must have a doctor's statement if your child requires a special diet, this must be renewed every year. If your child has a food allergy, please contact our office at 972-563-7504. For more information about the District's School Nutrition Program or for information about the National School Lunch Program contact Ms. Tidwell at 972-563-7504.
