During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are NOT authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, Thrall ISD must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility.
Starting on August 2, 2022, Thrall ISD will begin distributing letters and applications to the households of the children in the district about eligibility benefits. Families are encouraged to complete the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, available here and return the completed form to any school office. Only one application needs to be completed per household. The application will determine a child’s eligibility for free and reduced-price meals and may assist in the determination of eligibility for other state or federal benefits.
