As everyone knows, voluntary, remote instruction is no longer an option for JISD students. Therefore, as published previously, the delivery of meals to individual homes has ceased. However, it is also understood that students may have to learn remotely due to specific, involuntary circumstances. In those cases, meals will be available for pick-up at the school (breakfasts and lunches). The pickup site is at the Junior High campus where the buses drop off students at the front of the school. Meals will be available for pickup between 9:00 am-9:45 am each weekday.

DISTRICT-WIDE FREE MEALS FOR STUDENTS
The Jefferson Independent School District is proud to announce a district-wide change in policy of serving meals to children under the National School Lunch Program and National School Breakfast Program for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Jefferson I.S.D. is now eligible to operate the Community Eligbility Provision (CEP), which provides free breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminates the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. The approach reduces burdens for families and school administrators and helps ensure that student receive meals.
