Meyer Elementary, Woolls Intermediate and McDowell Middle School will be participating in the CEP School Meal Program for school year 2016-2017. Students attending these three campuses 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, students attending Hondo High will be required to fill out an application to participate in the Free/Reduced meal program.

 All students registering for school to attend HHS campus will be provided with an application for Free/Reduced priced meals annulay 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 to attend HHS will be given an application when they register.

All forms will be available for download from the district website beginning in August. 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.  Please contact Barbie Dickinson, Food & Nutrition Services Director, for more information at (830) 426-7600 or via email at bdickinson@hondoisd.net.
