General information

• Meals: Coupland ISD has relayed information through its Facebook page about free meal opportunities available at Taylor ISD and Elgin ISD. They also advised parents to visit https://txschools.gov and use the MealFinder Map to find locations near them where local school systems are offering free breakfast and lunch for pickup while school buildings are closed because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Launched by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), in partnership with the Office of the Governor and Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), the TXSchools.gov MealFinder Map is designed to help parents and students easily find school meals during the unprecedented disruption to schools caused by COVID-19. Once parents go to the site, they click “Meal Pick-Up Locations” to bring up a map of locations. Parents can type their address, and the map will zoom into meal pick-up locations that are up and running near them.
