The Sulphur Springs Independent School District, Child Nutrition Department, is announcing its policy for serving meals to children served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for AUSTIN ACADEMIC CENTER, SULPHUR SPRINGS MIDDLE SCHOOL, DOUGLASS ECLC, BARBARA BUSH, BOWIE, ROWENA JOHNSON, TRAVIS AND SULPHUR SPRINGS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. These schools qualify to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program and will provide breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.

Sincerely,

Veronica Arnold

Director of Child Nutrition
