Dear Parent or Guardian:
In an effort to keep you informed, the Child Nutrition Department is sending you this correspondence to update you on the new School Meal Program for next year.
Meyer Elementary and Woolls Intermediate will be piloting a new School Meal Program for school year 2014-2015. Students attending either Meyer or Woolls will receive one Free Breakfast and one Free Lunch daily, and will not be required to have an application to receive meals free of charge. However, all other campuses will be required to fill out an application to participate in the Free/Reduced meal program.
All students registering for school to attend a secondary campus will be provided with an application for Free/Reduced priced meals annually at the beginning of the school year. Only 1 application per household is necessary. Households wishing to receive Free or Reduced meals will need to fill out the application unless the household has received a pre-qualification letter from the district. All children living in the household, and registered with the district, must be included on one application. The completed application will be reviewed and the parent will be notified within ten days of receipt of the application. Pre-qualified families will receive notification before school starts in August. New students entering the district will be given an application when they register.
On August 14, 2014, HISD Child Nutrition Services will hold a Forms Night from 6-8 p.m. at Woolls Intermediate School Cafeteria. At this time, you can fill out and turn in your family application for the Federal School Meals Program, Account Restriction Forms, Special Dietary Needs Form (Exhibit B), and deposit funds into your student’s accounts. All forms will be available on Forms Night or you can download it from the district website beginning in July. Please contact Barbie Dickinson, Child Nutrition Director, for more information at (830) 426-7600 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A parent cannot provide any food item to another child, even with parental permission. We highly encourage that beverages sent with lunches should include a choice of milk, 100% juice, or water.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
