Lewisville ISD (LISD) announced Oct. 19 the new Blue Lunch Special program to be rolled out across the district effective immediately. The program is an initiative to invite police officers to enjoy a free lunch with students at any of the district’s campus cafeterias.
“The integration of police officers on campus has proven to be an important part of safety within the district,” said Matt Garrett, the Director of Safety and Security for LISD.
“This program will not only increase their presence, but it will also encourage conversation between our students and staff and the officers, creating a friendly environment for them to ask questions and learn new things about law enforcement.”
The Blue Lunch Special is available within LISD to all uniformed officers from any police department. Police Officers can enjoy a lunch for free provided by the school, or are invited to bring their own lunch, while spending time and interacting
“Dr. Rogers and the LISD administration have done a fantastic job introducing the Blue Lunch Special program and our officers are looking forward to utilizing it,” said Police Chief Andy Kancel of the Flower Mound Police Department. “This program, in conjunction with other programs in our department, will help increase our positive exposure to the youth of Flower Mound.”
With safety a top priority for LISD, the Blue Lunch Special serves as an opportunity to increase casual police presence and visibility on campus, while also encouraging positive community relationships with law enforcement, school officials said.
