Dear Parents and Guardians,
As you know, the Spring Independent School District has been able to offer lunch at no cost to students at your school regardless of their family income. This benefit was provided by the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) through a partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
At the end of the school year, Spring ISD’s participation in the CEP program changed. This change requires the district to formally notify you that your campus will no longer receive funding from the program, which is part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
Although this type of funding will end, your student may be eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals for the 2016-17 school year. To determine if your family qualifies, you must complete the Free or Reduced-Price Meal Application for next school year. Forms will be available at all back-to-school activities and events. The form will also be posted online at mealapps.springisd.org after . All information collected, including student eligibility, is kept confidential.
Students at every campus will be served breakfast free of charge. Lunch prices for elementary students is $1.75 and secondary students can purchase lunch for as low as $2. Please visit www.springisd.org/nutrition to see upcoming menus, make online payments and learn more about the meal programs offered across the district.
We appreciate your support of our meal programs and will continue to work hard to offer a variety of nutritious meals to our students.
