As the 2021-2022 school year is rapidly approaching teachers, administration, staff, students, and parents are working diligently to prepare for the year. From school supplies to school clothes to school registration the demands of starting a new year can be a challenge. FISD appreciates the efforts of our parents and students in preparing for the new school year and setting each year up for success.
As part of the registration process parents are asked to complete some of the same forms year after year. One such form is the Meal Application for free or reduced lunch. While the monotony of completing the meal application year after year can feel pointless, the ramifications of filing the Meal Application can bring benefits to both families and the district.
The results of the Meal Application can affect district funding, family’s access to pEBT benefits, the costs of the SAT and ACT tests for students, provide families discounts on home internet service, and more.
Students will receive the Meal Application on their first day back to school, but the are also available at either cafeteria. If you have any questions about the Meal Application for you can contact Mrs. Madge at 903-876-5954.
