FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH
We are excited to announce breakfast and lunch will be provided free to every scholar at all of our schools beginning the first day of school, July 31, 2019.
Wayside Schools has qualified to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), a program of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. Through CEP, families no longer need to complete paperwork to qualify for free or reduced price meals. Instead, breakfast and lunch will be available to ALL scholars for free regardless of income.
Breakfast will be served at all schools beginning at 7:10 a.m. Lunch will be served according to your school’s schedule. Breakfast and lunch menus can be found at http://www.preferredmealsmenu.com/. Scholars are still welcome to bring their own lunch, if they choose.
If you have a meal account balance from a previous school year, please contact Carrie Sandlin to arrange a payment plan. She can be reached by email at email@example.com. The previous online payment system is no longer available.
Before school begins, make sure to attend Meet The Teacher to see your classroom, meet your new teachers, and pick up your schedule (for MS & HS). Drop in anytime during the following sessions:

What is a "Campus"
Wayside has five schools spread across three sites. To ease confusion, we refer to these sites as "campuses." Our campuses are:
- Bradshaw Campus (10704 Bradshaw Road, Austin, TX 78747): Home of Wayside: Altamira Academy & Wayside: Sci-Tech High School
- William Cannon Campus (6405 S. IH-35, Austin, TX 78744): Home of Wayside: REAL Learning Academy & Wayside: Sci-Tech Middle School
- Eden Park Campus (6215 Manchaca Road, Austin, TX 78745): Home of Wayside: Eden Park Academy
Wayside will continue its popular shuttle service between campuses in 2019-2020. Our shuttles operate between Bradshaw Campus (home of Wayside: Altamira Academy and Wayside: Sci-Tech High School), William Cannon Campus (home of Wayside: Sci-Tech Middle School and Wayside: REAL Learning Academy) and Wayside: Eden Park Academy each morning and afternoon.
To sign up for this free service, click here for English, or click here for Spanish.
All Wayside elementary schools have after-school care available.
Wayside: Eden Park Academy, Wayside: REAL Learning Academy and Wayside: Altamira Academy work with Extend-A-Care to provide this service. To sign-up, contact Extend-A-Care at 512-472-9402 or visit them online at www.eackids.org.
For older scholars, Wayside: Sci-Tech Middle & High School offers several after-school clubs and activities. From board games to gardening, we have clubs for every interest. Find out more about these clubs and how to sign up when school begins.
