Media Release for Seamless Summer Option
Free Meals in School Year 2021-2022

Denison ISD announced its policy today that this school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.

 

While no application or eligibility determination is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, income eligibility requirements will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year for grades 7-12 only. As such, Denison ISD will process household applications during School Year 2021-2022 to ensure student eligibility for free or reduced-price meals during the first 30 days of the 2022-2023 school year while 2022-2023 applications are being processed. Each school/site or central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed upon request.

 

Starting on 08/12/2021, Denison ISD will begin distributing letters to the households of 7-12 GRADE children in the district of Denison about these 2022-2023 eligibility benefits and actions households need to take to apply. Applications also are available online at: https://www.myschoolapps.com and your 7-12 GRADE child’s school office or the Food Service Office at 1201 S. Rusk Ave, Denison, TX 75020.

PARENTS! Stay informed...

Parents are strongly encouraged to continually monitor their child’s meal account balance for negative balances.  This can be done by setting up an account in the My School Bucks on the Food Service department link on the DISD website, or by checking with your child’s cafeteria department. At the point a student’s account has a negative balance, the district will send out negative balance notices and may begin calling the parent.  Charging is never allowed on a la carte items, such as chips, ice cream, etc.

DISD Meal Account Refund Policy

Unused meal account money of $5.00 or more left in an inactive account is available for refund for the current and up to June 15 of prior year and may be requested by a child’s parent/guardian. 

 

Any unused balance can also be transferred to a sibling’s account upon request.  All requests must list the child’s full name and student ID, and will be processed as quickly as possible. The form must be printed, completed and returned to the Denison ISD Food Service department.  DOWNLOAD THE FORM
