Charging Policy: No charging allowed

Paris ISD is participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). This is a special provision that provides an alternative approach for offering school meals to schools that meet the qualifications as specified in the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act that allow ALL STUDENTS to eat a no cost breakfast and lunch without having to submit an application for free or reduced price meals. The CEP uses information from other programs, including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Temporary Assistance Program for Needy Families (TANF) instead of the traditional paper applications. Students attending the Paris Independent School District qualify for the Community Eligibility Provision and all student will be provided a no charge breakfast and lunch.


New Employees are allowed to charge until they receive their first paycheck. When the paycheck is received, the new employee is asked to pay off their charges at that time. Unpaid employee charges are submitted to the business manager on a monthly basis.


Returned checks – Checks returned by the bank to the school food service account will be credited back to the account in which the check was deposited with an additional $2.00 fee.  An attempt will be made by the food service director to contact the parent/employee informing them of the returned check.  If contact cannot be made, a letter will be mailed to the home address listed on the student’s school record.  No other checks will be accepted until the returned check and fee are repaid in cash.


Inactive Accounts with Positive Balances

A student who leaves the district may request a refund of a positive balance up to $19.99 at the time of withdrawal or with a positive balance in excess of $20 may request a refund by check within 30 days of withdrawing or graduating.

Quick Tip Information

Quick Tip is a support system that allows students to communicate with school administrators. While the district already has many programs to help students deal with challenges such as bullying behaviors, stress, peer pressure, and family problems, Quick Tip helps break the code of silence often experienced by students because it allows them to report concerns to administrators anonymously.

Submit from App
SchoolMessenger Quick Tip app is available for both iOS (iTunes App Store) and Android devices (Google Play). Download SchoolMessenger Quick Tip App. When launching the app for the first time, you will be prompted to enter the school district code. The school district code is paristx.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a crisis line. In cases of emergency, the site will direct students to call 911!
