Our Houston County School District wants to ensure that all of our students have access to school meals. Students enrolled in Houston Virtual distance learning are eligible to receive meals through our School Nutrition Program. All eight of our middle schools will serve as meal pickup sites for our Houston Virtual students. For safety and convenience, students will be able to pick up multiple meals at a time, one day per week on Wednesdays.
Nineteen schools in our district qualify as Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) schools and thus provide meals at no charge to their students. The 19 schools are: C.B. Watson Primary, Centerville Elementary, Huntington Middle, Lindsey Elementary, Miller Elementary, Morningside Elementary, Northside Elementary, Northside High, Northside Middle, Parkwood Elementary, Pearl Stephens Elementary, Russell Elementary, Shirley Hills Elementary, Thomson Middle, Tucker Elementary, Warner Robins Middle, Warner Robins High, Westside Elementary and WIN Academy.
Schools that are not a CEP school will charge for meals based on the student’s eligibility. Students who are approved for free meals will receive the meals at no charge. Students who are approved for reduced meals will receive the meals for $0.30 per breakfast and $0.40 per lunch. All other students will be charged the paid meal price depending on their grade level. In order to qualify for free or reduced price meals, an updated meal application must be on file with the School Nutrition department. A new application is easy and quick to complete and submit.
