The kids are officially back in school...well, except the high schoolers. They go back Wednesday.

You've got everything on the school shopping list knocked off, or at least you think you have, and now it's off to school with them!

Did you remember to send them with a lunch? "Nah, they get it for free at school," you say. Well, surprise! They don't any longer. Panicked yet?

I know, there are always SOME little surprises that creep up on us, and this is probably going to be the biggest one that gets ya.

Since the kids started going back to school after COVID, there was a program that was allowing schools to provide those school lunches to our kids for no charge. Unfortunately, those programs are pretty much all gone now that the pandemic has slowed significantly and people are getting back on their feet.

AISD and CISD are now back to charging for breakfast and lunch at school, and that means if they're going to eat school lunch, you'll need to fund their accounts this year.

Now, it's not like it's super expensive. CISD has lunch prices set at $2.35 per lunch for elementary students (pre-k-4th grade students), and $2.55 for secondary students (5th-12th grade students). Breakfast is $1.55 for all students.

Yes, parents can still go and have school lunch with their kids if they wish. It'll run adults $4 if you're eating school lunch with them.

Over at AISD, the lunch prices are a touch more, but not bad at all. Elementary students will be charged $2.40 for a complete meal, middle school and high school students come in at $2.65 per student. There is an entree-only option checking in at $2.20 for students of all grades. Breakfast is only 90 cents for elementary students and $1.00 for middle school and high school students.

Adult lunches at AISD are $4.25 should you choose that option.

Check Out The Original Names For These Amarillo Streets

It's hard to imagine these well-known Amarillo streets as any other name. Try to imagine giving directions to someone while using their original names. Gets tricky, doesn't it?

The new names (that we currently know them by) came mostly from associates of Henry Luckett, who drew the first map of the area. When this took place exactly, records do not show, but the street name revamp is covered extensively in 'Old Town Amarillo' by Judge John Crudgington, published in the Plains Historical Review in 1957.
