Wellness Policy

White Oak ISD has developed a Wellness Policy that focuses on improving the health of our students.  The policy was developed by the School Health Advisory Council that is comprised of teachers, administrators, parents, community members, and a district nurse.

The deadline to apply for P-EBT food benefits has been extended to August 21. Did your child receive free or reduced-price school meals through the National School Lunch Program during the 2019-2020 school year? If so, your family may be eligible for this one-time food benefit. Visit hhs.texas.gov/pebt to learn more about P-EBT. For questions regarding eligibility or if you need help applying, contact the P-EBT Call Center at 833-613-6220. The public charge rule does not apply to P-EBT benefits. If a family thinks their child was incorrectly denied P-EBT benefits, they need to contact HHS within 15 days of receiving their denial notice by calling the PEBT Call Center or by email at AES_PEBT_Complaints@hhsc.state.tx.us. They must provide proof they received free to reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program, to get P-EBT benefits. Proof includes the award letter that is sent to parents when their children become eligible for the National School Lunch Program. If children attend a CEP or P2 school, a school ID or report card can be used.   

White Oak ISD allows students to charge 3 meals (about $7.50) in their lunch account.  (Extras are not allowed to be charged at any time, just a complete meal.)  An alternate meal will be offered once this charge limit has been met.  This allows the parent sufficient time to get money into the students lunch account.  Automated low balance and negative balance phone calls go out on Monday and Thursday evenings.
