Important Message From Our Food & Nutrition Services Department

On Friday, May 12, Mesquite ISD’s Food & Nutrition Services Department was hit by the worldwide Cyber Attack. As a result, all cafeteria software was affected, causing issues with student accounts. Our Technical Services team is working tirelessly to resolve the problems, but in the meantime, we want to keep you informed on how this situation impacts students and parents. Rest assured that student information and credit card information was not compromised. But in protective measures to keep information from being compromised, the outcome resulted in limited communication between outside systems and our registers on each campus.

Student meal account balances are not available at this time.

  • The online payment system, School Café, has been turned off.
  • Parents will not see accurate information in their School Café accounts
  • Cash or check payments may still be made at the register
  • Free & reduced meal applications must be processed manually; online applications are not available at this time

Mesquite ISD will keep you informed of any updates to this situation. Our top priority is ensuring that all students continue to receive healthy meals while at school. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve these issues.

 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Physical education is the planned sequential instruction created to develop motor skills, physical fitness, and sports’ skills. Through movement, students will experience opportunities to utilize decision making and problem solving skills as well as to enhance mental, social, and emotional abilities. In order for physical education to be effective, it must include a variety of engaging activities, an ongoing assessment, and use of technology. The ultimate goal of physical education is for all students to embrace the challenge of a physically active lifestyle.

Physical Fitness Assessment

As required by state law, the FITNESSGRAM physical fitness assessment will be administered to all students in grades 3-12 who are enrolled in a class receiving physical education credit. Parents may obtain a copy of their child’s physical fitness assessment by submitting a letter to their principal at the end of the school year.
