Hays CISD parents may see another price increase as the the Hays CISD board of trustees considers raising the price of a cafeteria lunch meal by 10 cents.

During Monday’s trustee meeting, Chief Financial Officer Annette Folmar said to receive federally funded free and reduced lunches, the district must increase meal prices if the price charged for the meal is less than the difference between the price paid per meal by federal government rates for free and paid meals.

The current prices for a lunch meal are $2.60 at the elementary schools and $2.80 at the middle and high schools.

In the past, the district increased lunch prices by ten cents in both the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years. Breakfast prices are not affected.

The school board is scheduled to vote on the lunch price increase at its April 23 meeting in the Lehman High School cafeteria.
