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.



Each month, the Board of Trustees receives an Effectiveness Report from one or more district departments or programs. These reports detail the achievements, goals, challenges, budgets and other pertinent information about each department or program.
