Dear TISD Families, Of Tarkington ISD’s student enrollment of 1,800+ students, approximately 60% benefit from the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and receive a free or reduced-fee breakfast and lunch every day. To qualify for this program in the past, families have had to complete an application but due to the pandemic and subsidies from other government agencies, ALL students at TISD are receiving free meals for the 2021-2022 school year; however, because several other government agencies provide services to families based on the NSLP application (such as summer feeding programs, etc.), it is still very important to complete the application to ensure your family qualifies for other forms of assistance and/or programs. In addition, families who qualify based on the 2021-2022 application will remain eligible for the first 30 days of the 2022-2023 school year. In an effort to support our students who may qualify for these other programs, TISD would like to remind families that this form is available online via the SchoolCafe link (https://www.schoolcafe.com/) found on our website (https://www.tarkingtonisd.net/), and we will also be mailing out hard-copy application forms to families who have not already completed one for this year. If you have questions on creating an account or completing the online application, please call Karen Blum at 281-592-8781 x219 or email her at kblum@tarkingtonisd.net If you complete the paper application, please return it to the front office at any campus or the administration building. Only one application per family is needed.

Our TIS students are sharing smiles and samples of their small-group phonics lesson with Ms. Broussard. Direct, explicit instruction and small-groups are instructional "best practices," and we appreciate our TISD staff for their professionalism in best practices--and for making students smile :) #capturingkidshearts #readingbydesign #itsagreatdaytobealonghorn
