The Child Nutrition department recently held an awards ceremony for all employees to recognize outstanding service, teamwork and increases in production. Golden spoodles were presented "Hollywood style" to schools that went above and beyond in each category. The schools awarded were Wagner High, Judson High, Judson Secondary Alternative, Woodlake Elementary, Park Village Elementary and Salinas Elementary. The ceremony was held in conjunction with National Child Nutrition Employee Appreciation Week.

 

Child Nutrition Employee Appreciation Week

This week is dedicated to Child Nutrition Employees!  These men and women help make sure Judson ISD students are receiving healthy and nutritious meals, so they can better focus on education while in the classroom.  Thank you for all the hard work you do and for always doing it with a smile!

School Meal Charging Announcement

May 1st is an important deadline to remember when it comes to lunch for all elementary and middle school students.  Just like every year, meal charging will end so that any unpaid meal charges can be collected before the end of the year.  So, starting on May 1st, if students do not have money in their meal accounts and they do not have a way to pay for lunch – they will automatically be given a sandwich, fruit and milk.  Typically, students are offered a “grace period” where they can still receive a hot lunch even without money, sort of like an I.O.U.  But, that will end on May 1st.  Again, this only pertains to students who do not have money in their meal accounts.  Students on free lunch are not affected.

Lunch Prices to Increase Per Federal Mandate

Per federal mandate, student lunch prices will be increasing by 5 cents for the 2012-2013 school year.  Judson ISD, like all districts that participate in the National School Lunch Program must increase meal prices in order to comply with the mandate.  The School Board approved this increase during the April 18th Board Meeting. 

So, for 2012-2013, elementary lunches will cost $1.50 and middle and high school lunches will cost $1.75. 

The reduced lunch program is not affected by this.
