The Hondo Independent School District announced today it will continue its policy to operate the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program
and School Breakfast Program for the 2019-2020 school year at Meyer Elementary School, Woolls Intermediate School and McDowell Middle School. Schools qualifying to operate CEP serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.
