  • Meal Icon 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.

  • Ascender Parent Portal is LIVE- Returning & NEW Student Registration is Available

    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, visit our online registation information page.

  • EZSchoolPay Available To Parents
    Once again this school year parents can view purchase and credit details online for their child's cafeteria transactions via a service known as EZSchoolPay.  Through this portal, parents can see the quantity and types of items students are purchasing both at breakfast and lunch as well as view their child's account balance.  Additionally, parents can also choose to have a notification email sent whenever their child's account balance drops below an amount specified by the parent.  Both of these services are free.  As always, if a parent chooses to make deposits online, a service charge fee is incurred.  For more details, view the EZSchoolPay information page.
