Remote and Continuing Learning

During modified business operations, Lamar CISD remains committed to our students' education and success.

We realize no amount of remote education can replace the in-person care and instruction Lamar CISD teachers provide, but our goal is to minimize the spread of COVID-19 while providing continuity for our students.

For the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, Lamar CISD will be providing students with remote and continued learning opportunities. We understand that not every family has access to the internet or a smart device (computer, laptop, smart phone, iPad, etc.). We are prepared to work with families that need additional support. If your family needs assistance accessing these resources, please contact your campus principal by email.

Student Meals

Lamar CISD will offer lunch daily from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Monday – Friday and children will receive one lunch and one breakfast.

We hope this will help the community comply with the stay-at-home order while still receiving necessary meals.

UPDATE: Starting Monday, April 6, children will no longer be required to be present to receive student meals. Due to a change in requirements from the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), Lamar CISD will now allow parents to pick up the student meals without students being present.

Parents must provide one of the following documents:

  • Student ID cards
  • Individual student report cards
  • Attendance record from parent portal of Skyward
  • Birth certificate for children not currently enrolled in school

Without one of the listed items above, parents will receive meals for the number of students present with them, on foot or in a vehicle.

Meals will be distributed at the following school sites:

  • Beasley Elementary: 7511 Avenue J, Beasley, TX 77417
  • Briscoe Junior High: 4300 FM 723, Richmond, TX 77406
  • Fulshear High School: 9302 Charger Way, Fulshear, TX 77441
  • George Ranch High School: 8181 FM 762 Rd, Richmond, TX 77469
  • Lamar Consolidated High School: 4606 Mustang Avenue, Rosenberg, TX 77471
  • Seguin ECC: 605 Mabel St., Richmond, TX 77469
  • Terry High School: 5500 Avenue N, Rosenberg, TX 77471
  • Kendleton Park and Ride: FM 2919, Kendleton, TX

These meals will be available for free for anyone 18 and under regardless of what school they attend. 

This program will be solely for the pick-up of meals, and meals will not be consumed on-site. We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the school site and utilizing social distancing once meals have been distributed. Individuals will not be permitted to enter any campus. 

All food will be distributed near the bus ramp at all locations.
