We are excited to announce that Texas Leadership has joined the ranks of more than 300 school districts across 27 states and has made the decision to partner with Preferred Meals to provide food service for our entire district. With over 45 years of experience, Preferred Meals is passionate about serving nutritious, well balanced, and tasty food. All meals are kid-tested and approved and also meet state and federal dietary guidelines.

Virtual Learning Parents & Students,

 

This is for all TLCA San Angelo students including Elementary, Junior High and High School.

TLCA will be offering meals for students learning virtually in a drive through Grab N Go line each school day from 8:00am- 8:20am. Parents will need to preorder their meals each day, the day prior by 1pm using the link provided below.

 

We will have one Grab N Go line on the side of the TLCA Jr. High campus, on Colorado Ave.

The first day you go through the line you will be provided a sign to display in your car window as you drive through to help the cashier identify your student. You will need to know your student’s ID number. As you reach the cashier please pop your trunk, if possible, so the cashier can place your meals there to limit direct contact.

 

You will be given 1 breakfast and 1 lunch, both frozen with directions to heat at home. Please note: your student’s meal account will be charged for each meal given per day. If you have any questions please call Serina Marturano, serina.marturano@tlca-sa.com 325-653-3200 x 7023 or Lola Ojeda, lola.ojeda@tlca-sa.com 325-653-3200 x 7117.
