Cafeteria and Food Service

   

To minimize possible outside exposure and to allow for adequate physical distancing for students during meal times, we are discouraging all outside items, including lunches, from being dropped off at school throughout the day. Food service protocols are:

    

  • Marion ISD Nutrition & Food Service staff use face shields, facial coverings and gloves when performing job responsibilities and are trained to practice health and hygiene regulations 
  • Marion ISD cafeterias are cleaned and disinfected daily 
  • Marion ISD cafeterias, serving and eating areas are cleaned between uses
  • Primary and Elementary students will eat breakfast and lunch in the classrooms 
  • Secondary students will eat in the secondary cafeteria over four separate lunch periods to maximize social distancing
  • Secondary meals will be packaged as “grab and go” to ensure ease of pick up and transport to eating locations.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be available in the cafeteria and classrooms 
  • Parents are encouraged to use the My School Bucks mobile app to provide student meal money instead of sending cash to your child’s campus. 
  • For students that are learning remotely, lunches will be available for pick up from 11:30-12:00 from behind the secondary cafeteria. There will be no meal delivery services available. Remote learning students must provide an ID to pick up their lunches and they will be charged the price of a regularly priced lunch, unless they are on free/reduced lunch, and if so, their account will be charged at that rate. 

 

   

Transportation

    

Per TEA’s COVID-19 guidance regarding transportation, Marion ISD and All Aboard Transportation are implementing enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures between each bus trip. Bus transportation is provided for eligible riders and every effort is made to ensure students are able to socially distance. In addition, TEA and Marion ISD highly encourages families to drop students off, carpool, or walk with their student to school to reduce possible virus exposure on a bus.

    

Additional protocols include:

    

  • All transportation staff required to wear facial coverings
  • All students, grades PK-12, are required to wear facial coverings while on bus
  • Bus seating will be assigned and every effort will be made to maintain social distancing
  • Students and staff required to use provided hand sanitizer upon boarding the bus 
  • Bus windows will remain open to allow for additional ventilation and air flow
  • Buses will be thoroughly cleaned after each bus trip, focusing on high-touch surfaces such as bus seats, steering wheels, knobs, and door handles  
  • Buses will be disinfected daily utilizing the electrostatic cleaner at the end of the day.
