September 21, 2020 Email: Hays CISD Breakfast & Lunch Will Be Free to All Students

Posted by Tim Savoy on 9/21/2020 8:00:00 PM

Dear Hays CISD Family,

We are happy to announce that the district has been awarded a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) block grant that will allow us to provide breakfast and lunch to all students, districtwide, at no cost to the students or their families.

Starting Monday, September 28, 2020, all in-person meals (breakfast and lunch) served on a Hays CISD campus will be free to students who are 18-years-old and under. Additionally, the district will continue its curbside grab-and-go meals service at select campuses at no cost to students or families.

We anticipate that the block grant will allow the district to offer no cost meal service to students through the end of December.

Please see the online flyer (in English and Spanish) for details:

Stay Safe!

Sincerely,
Tim Savoy
Chief Communication Officer

Note: You still want to fill out the free and reduced meal service application (https://www.hayscisd.net/Page/311) to see if you qualify. Once this block-grant runs out, the district will have to start charging again for meals either at a full or reduced price; and will only be able to offer free meals to students who qualify.
