The School Zone: News


Beginning September 8th and continuing through December 31st or until further notice by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Spring Branch ISD will provide meals at no cost to all students in SBISD.

The USDA has extended several flexibilities through as late as December 31, 2020, for Child Nutrition Programs across the country.
 
Please see below for additional details:
 
How will this change affect meal service during In-Person learning?
  • The only change will be that students will no longer be required to present a district ID badge when receiving breakfast or lunch.
  • This will allow students to more quickly return to their designated eating areas. It also eliminates the need for the exchange of cash, which will further reduce time spent in serving lines.
How will this affect students who have opted in for the Distance Learning model under the LearnSBISD Plan?
 
Grab & Go Meal Service will continue as planned for distance learning students in the same manner as it exists now.
 
Parents wishing to pick-up meals for distant learning students who arrive without their child/children present will be required to present proof of enrollment for each child in order to receive a meal.
 
The criteria to prove enrollment has expanded to include one of the following items to receive a meal. Verbal-only identification cannot be accepted curbside.
  • Official Letter/email from school listing children enrolled (every family in SBISD has already received this letter and/or email.)
  • Individual student report card
  • Attendance record from parent portal of school website
  • District issued Student ID card
Where and when will meals will be distributed for Distance Learning students?
 
Meals will be distributed every day, Monday through Friday, from 4:00pm until 5:30pm until further notice:
