  • Free Meals Now Available for All Students

    The United States Department of Agriculture has approved a waiver for all Ponder ISD students to receive breakfast and lunch meals at NO COST beginning today (11/2/2020) through through the last day of school (5/27/2021). This waiver is due to COVID-19 and will be in effect as long as funding is available by the USDA. If the waiver is cancelled, all student accounts will return to their current eligibility status immediately.

    In-person learners will use the cafeteria in the same manner to receive their meals at no cost. Virtual learners and non-student household siblings under 18 yrs. of age may participate in curbside pickup to receive free meals. This service must be pre-ordered via this Google Form to guarantee meal coverage.

    **Please note that this only applies to regular student meals, as any a la carte items – including second meals, extra side items, snacks and beverages – will keep their regular costs.

    Any current funds on lunch accounts will remain untouched and available for use in the future. If a student has money in their account, they will be allowed to purchase a la carte items, unless not permitted by parent/guardian.

    If you have any questions, please contact Jeannie DeLange by phone at 940-479-8308 or jdelange@ponderisd.net.

  • Returning & NEW Student Registration is OPEN for the 2020-2021 School Year!

    Ascender Parent Portal is LIVE 

    The new Ascender Parent Portal is now live and has replaced txConnect. This solution now allows for online registration which has been a feature often requested by our community. Letters were mailed to parents/guardians on June 3, 2020 which contain instructions on how to begin using this new parent portal. The parent letters were intended to be delivered in May, but due to technical problems the letters were held until the developers were able to release software updates to make the system work properly. We apologize for the delay, but hope that you will find it worthwhile.

    To fiind out more details about how to complete the online registration process, vist our online registation information page.

    PJH Staff will be on duty at 7:30 a.m.

    The building will not be accessible until that time.

    If your student is dropped off before 7:30 they will need to wait under the front porch until staff arrive.
