Grab & Go Meal Program Update / ActualizaciĆ³n para el Programa de Recoger y LLevar
04/03/2020

Effective Monday, April 6, Seguin ISD will comply with new free meal guidelines set forth by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

 

Parent Meal Pickup without Student Present

In order to ensure program integrity, the Texas Department of Agriculture is requiring one of the following items be presented at meal pickup (when the student is not present):

 

Official Letter/email from school listing children enrolled

Individual student report cards

Attendance record from parent portal of school website

Birth certificate for children not in school

Student ID cards

 

If students are not in the car during meal pickup, parents/guardians can present one of these items for each student meal needed. The district does not need a copy, so parents can reuse their documents each day. These documents can be presented for any child from any school district, not just Seguin ISD. If the child is not enrolled in school and not present during meal pickup, parents will need to present a birth certificate. You may only visit one site for meals each day.

 

Additionally, TDA and the USDA have clarified expectations for weekend meal service. The free meal program is designed to feed students who would normally have access to meals during regular school days. Therefore, based upon this guideline, Seguin ISD can no longer provide free weekend meals beginning Monday, April 6.

 

Government assistance programs such as SNAP are available for parents and other adults. These programs provide public assistance benefits through an application process. Individuals can receive more information and complete an online application for programs (including SNAP, TANF, and Medicaid) by going to www.yourtexasbenefits.com, or by calling 2-1-1 or (877) 541-7905.

Efectivo el lunes, 6 de abril, El Distrito Escolar de Seguín va a cumplir con l0s guías y reglamentos puestos por el Departamento de Agricultura de Texas (TDA) y el Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos (USDA).

 

Recogido de Alimentos sin la Presencia del Estudiante

 

Para poder asegurar la integridad del programa, el Departamento de Agricultura de Texas (TDA) está requiriendo que presenten uno de los siguientes artículos al recoger alimentos cuando el estudiante no esté presente.

 

Carta oficial o correo electrónico de la escuela que muestra que el estudiante está inscrito/a

Boleta individual de calificaciones del estudiante

Registro de asistencia del portal de padres en el sitio de red de la escuela

Certificado de nacimiento para niños que aún no están en la escuela

Tarjeta de identificación del estudiante

 

Si el estudiante no está en el carro cuando recojan el alimento, los padres/guardianes pueden presentar uno de estos artículos para el alimento necesario de cada estudiante. El distrito no necesita una copia, así es que lo padres pueden volver a usar el documento cada día. Estos documentos se pueden presentar para cualquier niño/a de cualquier distrito escolar, no nadamas para del Distrito Escolar de Seguin. Si el estudiante no está inscrito en una escuela y no está presente durante la recogida de alimentos, los padres van a necesitar el certificado de nacimiento. Usted solamente puede recoger alimentos de un sitio y una vez al día.

 

Adicionalmente, TDA y el USDA han aclarado las expectativas para el servicio de alimentos del fin de semana. El programa de alimentos gratis no está diseñado para alimentar estudiantes que normalmente tendrían acceso para alimentos que regularmente reciban durante los días escolares. Así es que, basado sobre estos guías, el Distrito Escolar de Seguín ya no podrá proporcionar alimentos gratis los fines de semana empezando el 6 de abril.

 

Programas de asistencia del gobierno, como el SNAP, están disponibles para padres y otros adultos. Estos programas proporcionan beneficios de asistencia pública y un proceso de aplicación. Individuales pueden recibir más información y completar una aplicación en línea para programas (incluyendo SNAP, TANF, y Medicaid) al ir a www.yourtexasbenefits.com, o al llamar 2-1-1 o (877) 541- 7905.
