  • 3/19/2020 Update – Changes to Pick Up Lunches: On Monday, March 23, 2020 Thorndale ISD will still be offering pick up meals  @ Thorndale ISD 104 E. Moerbe St. (park where the busses pick up/drop off); Monday - Friday 11:30a- 12:30p. During this time, each student will be given a grab & go breakfast for the next day and lunch for that day. Since Thorndale ISD is a closed enrolled site (which means we only feed Thorndale ISD students) parents and siblings are allowed to pick up the student's meals. The student does not have to be in the vehicle. The parent/sibling can pick up the child's meals, as long as we are able to check off the student's name on our roster. Meal pick up schedule subject to change. Please continue to check our Thorndale ISD website for updates:  

    Thank you for your patience, Jeni Anders
