All of our school campuses participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The NSLP is a federally assisted meal program that provides nutritionally balanced, low cost or free meals to qualifying students.
Hondo Valley has been designated as a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school. Because of this designation, all students receive a free, reimbursable meal for breakfast or lunch. There is no need to complete an application to receive this benefit. For more information, please review this CEP letter.
Did you know that breakfast increases your child’s brain power? Our bodies convert breakfast food into energy for use by our brain. When children skip breakfast, they must rely on the energy from their last meal to fuel their brain. Without breakfast, kids typically have a gap of twelve hours or more between dinner and lunch. This can make kids tired and restless.
Our school breakfast ensures your child starts the school day well-nourished and ready to learn. Breakfast starts at 7:45 a.m.
