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.

White Oak ISD will offer free meals to all students in the 2021-2022 school year. The decision to serve free breakfast and lunch through the coming school year comes after the USDA announced it would be extending free meal benefits through June 2022. Schools nationwide will be allowed to serve meals through USDA’s National School Lunch Program Seamless Summer Option (SSO), which is typically only available during the summer months.

White Oak ISD is excited to offer healthy, delicious meals at no cost to all families, regardless of their household income. Free school meals will help expand food access in White Oak while also providing comfort for students and convenience for families.

The free meals will be one (1) complete meal off the serving line. Additional meals, extra entrée items, snacks, and drinks (other than milk) will be at an additional cost. Your student will still use their lunch accounts and lunch ID numbers. They may use their lunch accounts for purchasing the extra items and you will still be able to send money or pay on-line to add money to their lunch accounts.

With the uncertainty of the extension into the 2022-2023 school year, families are encouraged to fill out a Free/Reduced Lunch Application for the 2021-2022 school year even though all meals will be free. We will need these applications on file for any additional P-EBT benefits as well as the 30 day carry over of statuses for the 2022-2023 school year.

You will be required to go to the Lunch Application page before you will be able to complete your on- line student registration. If you received a Direct Certified letter to your household within the past 2 weeks you will not have to complete the application. If you did not receive a Direct Certification Letter and you choose not to fill out the application, you need to understand that the school’s disbursement of federal funds and accountability rating may be affected by your choice to decline filling out the
application.

If you received a Household Letter of Predetermination, please do NOT complete a household meal application.
