Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD will continue to provide "grab & go" meals to students Monday through Friday.

Keller ISD will do the same through its food service provider, Sodexo, to students under 19 years old.

The University Interscholastic League also told Texas public schools that games and contests would not resume before May 4 at the earliest.
