Dear Parents/Guardians: On May 16, 2022, the Brenham ISD School Board approved changes to the Child Nutrition Department meal charge policy. The new policy states: Students may charge meals up to the equivalent of three breakfasts and three lunches. An automated phone call will occur when students reach a negative balance on their account and daily until a negative balance is resolved. If a student’s account exhausts the grace period/ charge limit, the student will receive a “value meal” consisting of an entrée of choice and milk at breakfast and lunch. Ala carte items are not available for charging. This policy was adopted to prevent students from accruing large negative balances. In addition to the meal charge policy, when a student accumulates five (5) consecutive value meals, their information will be shared with their campus Administration to follow up with the household. We hope that providing additional communication with families will reduce the amount of student debt and keep everyone informed of extenuating circumstances. We encourage you to check your child’s account balance and add funds if necessary either online at SchoolCafe.com or download the School Café app for free . Messages for low and negative lunch balances began on August 18th through calls, texts, and email. During the pandemic, schools were able to offer no-cost meals to all students due to temporary program flexibilities provided by the federal government. These flexibilities have expired, and the U.S. Congress did not provide funding in this year’s budget to allow schools to serve free meals to all students in the 2022-2023 school year. If you feel that your household may qualify for no-cost or reduced-price meals, we encourage you to complete a household application either online at SchoolCafe.com or download the School Café app for free. If your household qualifies for meal assistance, that assistance will begin immediately upon processing the application. Parents must have their student(s) ID number to submit an application. Until you receive notification of approval or denial, you must provide your child(ren) with lunch or lunch money . Students who qualified for free or reduced-price meals during the 2021-2022 school year will only have benefits for the first 30 days of school, those benefits will expire on September 29, 2022 , unless a new application is submitted. Our Child Nutrition team looks forward to serving healthy, balanced meals to every student this school year!

ParentSquare, the new communication platform, allows parents and guardians in Brenham ISD to receive all of their communications from the district, schools, classrooms, and school activity groups in one unified app and service. Brenham ISD has launched ParentSquare—a simple and unified school-to-home communication platform—to reach and engage every parent, helping ensure all parents have the opportunity to actively participate in their children’s education. ParentSquare is now available for staff and parents to use on their computers or mobile devices. By unifying multiple tools into one communications app and service, ParentSquare provides a seamless experience for parents and staff. Parents will be able to keep track of news, activities, and events from all their children’s schools in one place. Brenham ISD hopes that ParentSquare’s intuitive, two-way platform will foster greater communication and family involvement. With ParentSquare, parents can enjoy photos posted by teachers, fill out forms and permission slips, sign up for parent-teacher conferences, check grades and attendance, and much more. School staff and parents can engage in both one-to-one and group messaging with real-time language translation. “Effective school-to-home communication has never been more important, which is why Brenham ISD adopted the ParentSquare communication platform. We’re looking forward to reaching 100% of our families no matter where they are, unifying all our communications tools across our district, and adopting a more eco-friendly approach by reducing the amount of paper used to send important communications,” said Brooke Trahan Communications Coordinator. Brenham ISD’s partnership with ParentSquare will enable stronger engagement between school and home, and help empower everyone within the school community to stay connected and informed.
