A Note from Mrs. Williams

Hello Schluter Families!


It has been a wonderful full week of school! Our students and staff are definitely getting into the swing of things for this year! Today, our Kindergarten students received a wonderful gift from the Northwest Education Foundation (NEF). Each Kindergarten student at Schluter and in NISD received a book to keep. Our students were so excited when we shared this exciting news with them today! These will be coming home with our Kindergarteners today. Thank you NEF!!


Next week will be our final week of no visitors for lunch, so be on the lookout for our lunch sign up in next week's newsletter! Thank you for your patience as we help our students adjust to campus expectations at lunch time.


I hope to see many of our families who are interested in volunteering this year at Volunteer 101 next week. This is an annual requirement for volunteering, so even if you attended last year, you'll need your update for this year. Please see the info below.


I hope everyone has a great weekend!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Williams

Interested in volunteering at school?  Adults must attend Volunteer 101.  August 31, 7:45 AM  In person and virtually!

walker and biker dismissal map

Please review the map when making a ride change for your students. Intermediate walkers dismiss out the 4th/5th grade hallway and exit to Prairie Breeze while Primary walkers dismiss out the Kinder/1st grade hallway and exit to Mesa Crest near the park. Your students grade does not indicate which exit they need to take, just where you meet them.

- WHAT'S HAPPENING -

The ParentSquare logo, featuring a box with four colors followed by text saying ParentSquare
Schluter and other Northwest ISD campuses have begun using ParentSquare to communicate with families, and so far we’ve heard great feedback! One question we have heard is how can families change how they get communication, such as only receiving text communication and not emails.

To change your preferences, just log into ParentSquare and click your name at the top right of the screen. From there, click “My Account,” then “Notification Settings” on the left sidebar. The instant feature will send you all communication as soon as it’s posted by a staff member (this will result in more communication received), and the digest feature will send you an email at 6 p.m. with all communication from our campus (resulting in fewer messages at one time, unless a staff member has opted to send important information instantly). It’s all up to you how you receive our communication!

School Meal information for 2022-2023

Campus Menus


All Northwest ISD students can charge up to 5 breakfast and lunch combo meals. Adults and children not enrolled in the district are not allowed to charge. After the charging limit has been reached, NISD students will receive a courtesy meal. A breakfast courtesy meal includes two pieces of toast with the students’ choice of milk, juice, and/or fruit. A lunch courtesy meal includes a sunflower butter & jelly sandwich with the students’ choice of milk, juice, and/or fruit. Courtesy meals must include fruit and meet combo meals guidelines.


Menus for every school are available on the Nutrislice website, which families can access by clicking “Find it Fast” at the top of the Northwest ISD website and then selecting the “Menus” button. School cafeterias continue to accept cash and check payments, and families can load funds into their students’ accounts at www.myschoolbucks.com. Information about meal prices is available at this webpage.

Finally, if you meet certain economic requirements, be sure to apply for the free and reduced-price meal program. With federal funding no longer available to provide free meals at elementary and middle schools in Northwest ISD, it’s imperative that families in need apply for this program to keep receiving benefits should they qualify.

Free & Reduced Lunch Program

While the federal government subsidized a free meal program that Northwest ISD implemented for all elementary and middle school students last year, this program was not funded for 2022-2023. This means families who meet income requirements should apply for the free and reduced-cost meal program if they believe their children should qualify for these meals.


Students in this program receive one breakfast and one lunch combo meal daily for their free or reduced-cost price. Families can apply online or print out a paper copy of the form. Those who previously were accepted into the program will have a 30-day grace period to reapply.
