class="ExternalClass09DFBE87A409424C8C0A4D1056BBC0E4"><p>​<span style="text-align:justify;">Katy Independent School District announces its policy for providing free and reduced-priced meals for children eligible under the current guidelines found at </span><a href="http://www.squaremeals.com/" style="text-align:justify;">www.squaremeals.com</a><span style="text-align:justify;">.</span><span style="text-align:justify;">  </span><span style="text-align:justify;">Parents can begin their new application process for the 2018-19 school year beginning the first week of August 2018.</span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Children living in households whose income is at or below the federally approved levels based on household size may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals.  Transfer students approved for the program from another school district may either complete a Katy ISD application or provide documentation of their eligibility status from that same school year.  Foster children who are the legal responsibility of a welfare agency or court may also be eligible for benefits regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside.  Children with status as homeless, runaway, migrant or displaced by a declared disaster also qualify for meals.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Nutrition and Food Service Department encourages parents in all eligible households to complete an <a href="http://www.katyisdfoodservices.com/">online application</a> which will be available two weeks before the start of the new school year.  Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Service Department is working with local agencies to identify all children who are program eligible.  If a student receives a letter of approval on the first days of school, there is no need to complete a new application for the 2018-19 school year.  If a child was on the program at the end of the previous school year, they are eligible for the same benefit for the first 30 operating days of the new school year or until a new application is processed.  A new application per household is required each school year.  For families that do not receive a letter and believe they should have or for those missing students in the letter received, they can contact the Nutrition and Food Service Department at 281-396-6240.  Staff is also available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the

The actions of these two officers were instrumental in saving his life. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Every day there is an abundance of heroism displayed by our officers throughout our campuses," said Chief Jinks.  "Although we don't often witness these acts of bravery, the work our law enforcement officers conduct at our schools proves to be a life-changing one," added Jinks. </p><p>The <em>Chief's Meritorious Citation Award</em> is presented to recognize and reward the actions of law enforcement officers and staff for their meritorious service to our school district.  This recognition reflects a commitment to the Katy ISD Police Department's core values which are <em>Integrity First, Service before Self and Excellence in All.</em><em>  </em>All three officers will now wear the merit pin as part of their uniform. </p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Christopher%20Pickering.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Christopher Pickering.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Christopher Pickering</p><p><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Jose%20Gonzalez%20-%20smaller.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Jose Gonzalez - smaller.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Jose Gonzalez</p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Michael%20Seiss%20-%20smaller.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Michael Seiss - smaller.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Michael Seiss</p><p><br></p></div>
