Meal Assistance Program

The cafeterias of Highland Park ISD are owned and operated by their respective PTA/PTO. No federal funds are accepted for the student meal service operation. Any lunch assistance given to a Highland Park ISD student is a gift to the student from the Cafeteria PTA/PTO campus in which the student is attending. Funding for the Meal Assistance Program is done independently at each campus through parent donation or outside funding. For more information, please refer to the district Meal Assistance Program Policy.
