Message from the Superintendent

The summer vacation is coming to an end. In just a few weeks, the students will return to school for a new school year, and what an exciting year it will be! We can't wait to see everyone back on August 12!


We are ready to go with full In-Person Instruction! We will continue to limit visitors and be very diligent in cleaning the facilities and handwashing but we can't wait to have everyone back! We will allow parents/guardians to eat lunch on Fridays this year. If you are interested in joining your student for lunch, you must call the school before 9:00 am to reserve a meal. If you do not call, we can not guarantee a meal will be available for you.


We are also very excited about the new website design and school App that was developed for Texhoma ISD. The App is available for Android and Apple devices. Please download the app and allow for notifications. You will be able to see the lunch/breakfast menus, supply list, school calendar, and events that are happening on campus via the app and school website.


Have a great rest of your summer and can't wait to see everyone on August 12th.



Sincerely,

Mrs. Yates

Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ESSER)


ESSER

Texhoma ISD has the opportunity to apply for Federal Grant money. This money was authorized in three pieces of legislation. ESSER I, ESSER II and ESSER III. These funds are to assist schools with the Coronavirus Pandemic and the effects it has had on our school districts and students.


ESSER I was authorized in Title VIII, Division B of the CARES (Coronavires Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act. This money was awarded to those schools that were classified as Title I in the 2019-2020 school year. Unfortunately, Texhoma ISD was not eligible for these funds.


We are however eligible for the ESSER II and ESSER III funds which were authorized by the CRRSA (Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations) and ARP Act (American Rescue Plan). If awarded these funds, Texhoma ISD will have up to $189,000 to assist with learning loss resources needed due to the Pandemic, technology, and structural updates.


We would like to thank all of our parents, community members, and staff who participated in the survey this summer. We were able to gather great data on the needs of our students and community.

2021-2022 School Meal Program

Texhoma ISD will be participating in the SSO program again for the 2021-2022 school year. Typically students must qualify for free or reduced meal prices, but the USDA has issued guidance allowing schools to offer meals to students at no cost for the current school year. The Free/Reduced meal application will not be required for the 2021-2022 school year, but will most likely resume for the 2022-2023 school year. Adult visitors will still be required to pay for their meals if they join a student on Fridays. Adult meal prices are as follows: Breakfast $2.50 and Lunch $3.75. If you have any questions about this program, please feel free to contact Danielle Harland at 806-827-7400.
