We have been informed by the State Department of Education and the United States Department of Agriculture that due to the recent flood, all Tangipahoa Parish School System students will receive meals at school for no charge for the period of August 24 - September 30, 2016. If any student paid for meals today, August 24, his or her lunch account will be credited. Parents should complete their online meal application so that when this special program ends on September 30, those eligible for the continuation of free or reduced meal benefits will not have their benefits interrupted. If there are any questions, please contact Kendra Reed, Director of Child Nutrition, at Kendra.Reed@tangischools.org

SPECIFIC TO DISPLACED STUDENTS
The Tangipahoa Parish School System is committed to provide instructional leadership and a safe and orderly environment for all students. In the aftermath of the recent severe flooding in our area, families that have been displaced and are now without permanent housing may be assured that their students will be enrolled in our schools immediately and offered services in accordance with the rules and guidelines of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. To enroll students who are temporarily displaced, parents should report to the school to complete the McKinney-Vento forms. Staff members will be prepared to assist these parents at our schools.
