Visitors to Hewitt-Texas

When you visit us at Hewitt-Texas between 7:45-3:45, we ask that you use the main entry. In efforts to keep our students safe, all visitors are greeted at the front door through out intercom system. Mrs. Trapp will welcome you inside.

You will be asked to stop at the office to register as a visitor and receive your visitor badge.

The first time you visit, you will be asked for a driver's license as part of our security procedures. Subsequent visits will not need a driver's license.

Thank you for your help in keeping our students safe.

2022-2023 Meal Prices

As you are aware, all students were able to enjoy free breakfast and lunch last year due to a federal grant. That opportunity has now ended, which means that we will once again need to charge for all meals. You are welcome to deposit money into your child's PayPams account.

Here is the pricing, set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), for this upcoming 2022-2023 school year:


Elementary Students: $1.50

Middle School Students: $1.75

High School Students: $1.90

Staff/Visitors: $2.50

Milk Carton: $0.45


Elementary Students: $2.85

Middle School Students: $2.95

High School Students: $3.10

Staff/Visitors: $4.75

Please know that free and reduced meals are available for qualifying students. If you would like to see if your students are eligible, click here to access the application.



Students who qualified for Free or Reduced meals from the previous school year

( 2021-2022) based on an income application, should check to be sure that their parent/guardian has completed a new meal application for the current school year. The 30 day carry over period or “roll-over” for meal eligibility is set to expire on Oct 13, 2022. After that date, any student(s) who is currently receiving FREE OR REDUCED meals based on an income application from LAST SCHOOL YEAR, will become full pay if no current meal application is approved and on file. See Paypams (www.paypams.com/onlineapp) to complete an online meal application to see if you qualify for FREE or REDUCED Meals.

Negative Meal Accounts

  • School Messenger messages will be sent out to all households to let you know if your child’s meal account balance is negative. Please send money with your child in a prepayment envelope that includes your child’s name. This envelope can be given to the kitchen staff at your child’s school. Parents may visit www.Paypams.com to create an online account for your child where you can add money to their meal account using a credit card as well as view purchases made.

  • Middle School and High School: Ala carte privileges are suspended once the meal account goes negative, a reimbursable meal only may be charged on a negative account,until the account reaches a negative $20.00; at which time the student will need to bring a cold lunch meal from home until the negative balance is corrected or cash is brought in to pay for the hot lunch meal that day. No student eligible for a free or reduced meal may be denied a lunch, even if the student has a negative account balance greater than negative $20.
