LaCasa Summer Lunch Program

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:
It has been our pleasure to offer breakfast and lunch to our students and their siblings during the Covid 19 school closure.  However, after Friday, May 22, Portales Municipal Schools will no longer serve the meals.   Instead, as with every summer, the La Casa Summer Food Service Program will begin to serve breakfast and lunch to all children 18 years of age and under.  They will serve meals from every school site in Portales between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 12:00 noon. They will begin the program on May 26th, and after that serve meals Monday through Friday.   On the 22nd, each person served  by PMSD will receive a lunch and breakfast for Monday, May 25th as well.  PMSD will not serve on May 25th.  Because the La Casa Summer Food Service Program is separate from the schools, the first time you go to pick up meals, you will need to take every child in your household who wishes to receive a meal to the meal site.  You will receive a card at that time that provides for how many eligible children you have in the family, and after that you will only need to provide the card to their staff and pick up the meals.  Your children will not have to be present after you receive your card.  Please see the attached letter from La Casa for more information.
Again, it has been a pleasure serving you.  Please stay safe and healthy.
With best regards, 
Johnnie Cain
Superintendent, Portales Municipal Schools

Parent COVID 19 School Start Survey
Schools across the state are making plans to reopen schools in August. Currently, there is little guidance from the New Mexico Public Education Department. With that in mind, as this District continues to plan for a safe start to the new school year, it is important that we understand the thoughts, advice, and wishes of this community. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. This will help our District to better plan for the coming school year.
