Administrative Assitant Child Nutrition
To contribute to the well-being of every student by providing nutritious, appealing meals in order for each student to learn and perform at the highest level.
The Ennis ISD School Nutrition Department participates in the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program. Our team of food and nutrition professionals is dedicated to providing quality meals to students, staff, and visitors, and support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, snacks, and beverages sold or served at Elementary and Intermediate meets the requirements of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act and the Smart Snacks in School policy. We encourage students to make healthy meal choices by providing access to a variety of healthy menu options, and daily choices of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Cafeterias & Student Nutrition
If allowed and deemed safe for students, cafeterias will be open to serve breakfast and lunch daily. The physical setup for the cafeteria and the schedule will be adjusted to reduce the number of students in the cafeteria at one time. Each campus cafeteria space will be evaluated to ensure social distancing. Some students will be eating in the cafeteria, spaced according to the recommended guidelines, and other students may eat in the classroom if necessary. All school meals will be served by employees, meaning student self-serve tables will not be used.
REMINDER: If your child is eligible for free or reduced lunch, please be sure to fill out the Free and Reduced Meals Application. We must receive a new meal application every year.
