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.

We are entering the season when inclement weather may cause school closures or delays. Mesquite ISD has a plan in place anytime weather may be a factor. We maintain communication with emergency management personnel and other school districts in the area to ensure we have the most accurate information. In addition, MISD staff members personally drive the roads in all areas of our district to determine whether they are safe for buses and other vehicles. School parking lots are also checked to ensure they are safe for foot traffic and vehicles.  And maintenance personnel monitor our facilities for power outages, flooding, wind damage, etc.


Any decision about a school closure or delay will be announced by 6 a.m. on the day in question. Mesquite ISD uses several methods to alert our families and staff members, including:


  • Calls, texts and emails sent through our emergency notification system
  • KEOM 88.5 FM radio
  • MISD district website
  • Facebook and Twitter
  • Television and radio news outlets
