RE:  Supporting Documentation for Summer Feeding Waiver 2019

Hudson ISD is requesting a waiver based on the following:

Alternate Providers have been contacted and have tentative plans to operate these 7 sites.

Lufkin ISD:

        Lufkin High School – 11 miles from Hudson ISD

        Lufkin Middle School Basketball Camp – 8 miles from Hudson ISD

        Herty Primary – 12 miles from Hudson ISD

        Slack Elementary – 9.7 miles from Hudson ISD

        St. Cyprian’s Lion Camp – 6 miles from Hudson ISD

        St. Patrick Catholic School – 7.9 miles from Hudson ISD

        First Christian Church – 8 miles from Hudson ISD

        Jones Park – 7.9 miles from Hudson ISD

        Kiwanis Park – 7.6 miles from Hudson ISD

        Chambers Park – 6.5 miles from Hudson ISD

Hudson ISD understands and supports the efforts of the Texas Department of Agriculture in providing healthy meals to children in the summer.  However, we believe our rural location does not provide a conducive site for children to be able to attend.

A link will be posted on the HISD website (Administration-> State Required Posting -> Health-> Summer Waiver) for public viewing.

We ask that Hudson ISD be granted a waiver for the summer of 2019.
