Any vandalism on school grounds is taken seriously, and students will be disciplined. Brenham ISD has a zero-tolerance for this type of behavior.

Fortunately, in Brenham ISD, our Cubs have demonstrated that their campuses are a place of pride. We take pride in having the best learning environment possible. In the halls that fill our campuses are students getting creative and working hard to fill the learning space with Cub Pride. However, we do want to take this time to encourage parents to talk about social media and the seriousness of this type of behavior and its consequences.
