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.



Mesquite ISD offers the 55 Plus Perks Card (formerly known as the Senior Citizen Gold Card) to all supporters over the age of 55.  The 55 Plus Perks Card enables holders to attend school district activities held in Mesquite ISD facilities, including school concerts, musicals, plays, athletic events, and much more, free of charge.  The only exceptions are high school varsity football games and UIL playoff games.  In addition, Garland ISD and Richardson ISD will honor the MISD 55 Plus Perks Card for free admittance to Mesquite competitions against Garland and Richardson schools (again, with the exception of high school varsity football games).

If you have a Senior Citizen Gold Card, it will still be honored. There is no need to request a 55 Plus Perks Card.

To obtain your personal 55 Plus Perks Card, contact the Mesquite ISD Communications Office at 972-882-7404 or complete the online form below.
