    SNAP Benefit Replacements Due to Winter Storm

    On February 19, 2021, Governor Greg Abbott announced that the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) has received federal approval to allow Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients to apply for replacement benefits for food lost or destroyed due to the severe winter weather by dialing 2-1-1.

    SNAP recipients who have had food lost or destroyed due to the storm need to apply for replacement food benefits for regular SNAP allotments and SNAP emergency allotments that were provided in response to COVID-19.

    SNAP clients are encouraged to stay home and request their replacement food benefits by dialing 2-1-1 and selecting option 2. Alternately, recipients can download Form H1855 (Affidavit for Nonreceipt or Destroyed Food Stamp Benefits) on the HHSC website. To limit exposure to COVID-19, recipients are encouraged to mail or fax the completed form to HHSC instead of visiting their local offices. Completed forms should be mailed to Texas Health and Human Services Commission, PO Box 149027, Austin, TX, 78714-9027, or faxed to 1-877-447-2839. For more information, please visit www.hhs.texas.gov.

    SNAP Purchases for Hot Foods

    On February 21, 2021, Governor Greg Abbott announced the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) received federal approval to allow Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients to use their food benefits to purchase hot foods and ready-to-eat meals due to impacts from the severe winter storm.

    SNAP recipients can now use their benefits for hot foods and ready-to-eat foods, such as rotisserie chicken or grocery store deli foods, at retailers that accept SNAP anywhere in the state.

    HHSC received federal approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service. The waiver allows SNAP recipients to purchase these ready-made foods with their Lone Star Cards through the end of March.

    Administered by HHSC, SNAP is a federal program that provides food assistance to approximately 1.6 million eligible, low-income families and individuals in Texas. Texans in need can apply for benefits, including SNAP and Medicaid, at www.YourTexasBenefits.com or use the Your Texas Benefits mobile app to manage their benefits. To find local resources in your area, such as food or shelter, please call 2-1-1 and select option 1.

  • CISD Virtual Instruction Update

    Every student needs to be engaged in lessons and attend school each day to be a successful learner. CISD’s virtual learning options provide many families an opportunity for children to learn remotely. While there are some virtual students who have been successful, a significant number of students are not performing to our academic standards.

    CISD is committed to providing every student the greatest opportunity to learn. Therefore, virtual learning options will continue for students who have demonstrated success, or who have a medical exemption from the campus environment.

    Online students who are failing one or more classes and/or have three or more unexcused absences will be required to return to campus. Campus leaders are reaching out to parents with information about their child’s return-to-school plan. There are many reasons that contribute to student achievement. We believe that our face-to-face instruction is the best option to help our at-risk students be successful.

    More information will be coming from your campus. Additional information regarding this recent Virtual Instruction Update can be found here.
