During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, El Paso ISD Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility.
Current and former Silver Foxes united with El Paso ISD officials Friday morning to celebrate the official opening of the new state-of-the-art Jefferson/Silva High School.
The 2022-23 school year is off to a great start. The first day of school marked the return of 48,000 students and the opening of three new prek-8s, a new middle school and a renovated Jefferson/Silva High School.
