  • Back to Student Meal Rates - Nutritious School Meals 
    Schools will transition back to requiring family applications for free and reduced-price meals to meet USDA requirements.

    In the 2022-2023 school year, schools are required to return to charging for school meals on the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) based on program eligibility.

    ALL INCOME ELIGIBLE FAMILIES SHOULD COMPLETE THESE STEPS:

    • As soon as possible, complete the NSLP Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals by visiting https://www.lunchmoneynow.com/lmnhal/.
    • Contact your district for where to access an application
    • Return the form to the school office or submit online if available electronically
    • Watch for notification of eligibility in the mail or in an email
    • Familiarize yourself with how your school accepts payment in the cafeteria for meals and a la carte items
    • Ask questions! Contact your district with any questions, your school nutrition department is excited to serve you and your student(s). 
    • Please contact: Pam Talley 903-668-5990 ext. 5552 or Charlie Combs 903-668-5990 ext. 1407

     

    WHY AREN'T MEALS FREE TO ALL STUDENTS AT MY CAMPUS?
    During the pandemic, schools were able to offer no cost meals to all students due to temporary program flexibilities provided by the federal government. These flexibilities have expired, and the U.S. Congress did not provide funding in this year’s budget to allow schools to serve free meals to all students in the 2022-2023 school year. 

    Your school nutrition team looks forward to serving healthy, balanced meals to every student in the new school year. These meals offer a good source of nutrition for children.

     

    WHY ARE MEALS FREE TO ALL AT OTHER CAMPUSES?
    Certain campuses are eligible to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The CEP is a federally funded option that allows all students to eat breakfast and lunch during the school day for free.

  • Hallsville ISD Names Lone Finalist for Superintendent
    Hallsville ISD Assistant Superintendent, Mr. John Martin, has been named the district’s lone finalist for the job of Superintendent. The announcement was made at Monday night’s regular school board meeting. After the mandatory 21-day waiting period, the board will vote to hire Martin as Superintendent. He will replace Mr. Jeff Collum, who recently accepted a position in Arkansas.


    Martin is a 1987 graduate of Hallsville High School. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Texas A&M University, a Master of Education Degree from the University of Texas at Tyler, and his Superintendent Certification from Lamar University. Martin began his career in education with Jacksonville ISD and went on to serve in various roles at Hillsboro ISD, Waskom ISD and Pine Tree ISD before coming back home to Hallsville ISD. He has served as a coach, assistant principal, campus principal, Chief Administrative Officer and for the past five years, Assistant Superintendent for HISD.


    Martin and his wife, Sherri, an ESL teacher at Hallsville Intermediate School, have three daughters, Bayli, Brilee, and Brinley. They also have two grandsons, Bryant and Brenham. “I have been blessed beyond measure to have spent more than half of my career at Hallsville ISD, and I am truly a “Bobcat for life.” It has been my honor to serve and give back to our students for the past 13 years. I look forward to carrying on the tradition of excellence in education and I am excited about what the future holds for HISD,” said Martin.

  • Use of Cell Phones and Personal Electronic Devices During STAAR Tests
    Maintaining the security and confidentiality of the Texas student assessment program is critical for ensuring valid test scores and providing standard and equal testing opportunities for all students. The Texas Education Agency is required by law to create policies to ensure the security and confidentiality of these exams. As a district, it is our responsibility to make sure that we have procedures in place to comply with these policies. One of these requirements is that districts must ensure that students do not have access to electronics during testing. Please review the attached document which outlines the practice of each Hallsville ISD campus on a testing day: 2020-2021 Hallsville ISD STAAR Cell Phone Letter

  • All Students to Return to In-Person, On Campus Instruction
    Since schools are not required to offer remote instruction per TEA, the administration has been reviewing student performance and attendance data from the first marking period. The data revealed that virtual online instruction has not been successful for the majority of our students and the added burden placed on our teachers is unsustainable. At this time, we believe that it is in the best interest of all students to return to in-person, on campus instruction. Read more...

  • Seamless Summer Option - Free Meals in School Year 2021-2022 - PEBT

    Hallsville ISD announced its policy today that this school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year. Each school/site or central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed upon request. While no application or eligibility determination process is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.

Since the passage of the 2009 Bond, Hallsville ISD has grown by more than 900 students, or an average of 100 students per year.
