We need your meal application! Despite all students currently receiving free breakfast and lunch, each student needs to return a completed meal application to their campus. This will ensure that there is not a lapse in meal funding later this year for your child as well as to help our district obtain additional funding for the instructional needs of our students. Our meal applications are significantly down. We encourage all households to complete a meal application, even if you plan on sending lunch from home for your student. If you have any questions, please contact Food Services at 830-875-3191. You can access the application at the link below, or contact your child's school for a paper copy to be sent home. https://www.luling.txed.net/page/home-food-services

Not only does Coach Bullock have the coolest mask ever, he was purposefully grouping his students as they entered the classroom today at Gerdes JH.
