Rice CISD Instructional Announcement

Now that the Governor has extended the closure of public schools, plans are underway to continue the delivery of instruction to students regardless of how long this closure may last.   In the next few days, staff members of the district will be reaching out to all families to gather important information needed for us to prepare to continue instruction for all of our students.  Please expect communication from your child’s teachers so that we can move as quickly as possible.   It is our goal to have instruction delivered to all students by Monday, March 30, 2020.  While all of this is new territory for all of us, we intend to make the best possible scenario of education available to our students.  Your support and patience is appreciated.  We will be in touch in the near future!

RICE CISD Food Service Announcement

Rice CISD will begin providing food for all individuals between the ages of 0-18 effective Monday, March 23, 2020.  Pick up points will be at Eagle Lake Intermediate School, Garwood School, and Sheridan School between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  In order for an individual to receive a meal they must be present as no meals are allowed to be distributed unless the individual is present.  Rice CISD employees will hand meals out to all age qualifying individuals outside the building and no admittance or dining in will be allowed.  Both a breakfast and lunch will be provided in a single pick up daily.  If you have questions, please email for further information.

Lunch Rumor Update
Misunderstanding:  There was a misunderstanding regarding lunch services during the Coronavirus School cancellation.  At this time, there are no lunch services for our students.  Contrary to what has been reported, there is no lunch service at Eagle Lake Intermediate School. District administrators are discussing possible food service options for our students.   Please check back with the district website and our social media pages for official updates.
