Mrs. Valerie Trujillo, Superintendent



Questa Independent School District is participating in a Universal Lunch and School Breakfast Program for the current school year (2016-2017). If your children attend Alta Vista, Questa Junior High and Rio Costilla, breakfast and lunch will be available to them at no charge. All students enrolled at this school may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge to them.

Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing lunch to all children at no charge, we are hoping to create a better learning environment for our students.

The school breakfasts and lunches that we serve follow U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The School Breakfast and Lunch Programs cannot succeed without your support; please encourage your children to participate in the school meal programs. Meals will be served to all students at no charge regardless of the eligibility status.

If you have any questions about the program please feel free to contact us at (575-586-0421).
