Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, Alton Elementary School will no longer be considered a Community Eligibility Program campus, and will return to regular participation in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs.
This means that the campus will no longer provide a free breakfast and lunch daily to all students.
For the past 4 years, Alton has been classified by the Texas Department of Agriculture as a CEP campus, providing a free breakfast and lunch daily to all students.
As a result of the Computerized Selection Process implemented by Brenham ISD in the 2016-2017 school year, the percentage has dropped below the threshold and is expiring for the coming school year at Alton Elementary School.
Any household seeking meal assistance must complete a free and reduced meal application and be approved to receive meal assistance for the 2018-2019 school year. The application will be available on August 1st, and may be accessed electronically on the BISD Child Nutrition website at http://brenham.healtheliving.net/ or in paper form at the Child Nutrition Office located at 1301 Niebuhr, Brenham.
A special reminder that fourth grade students at Alton Elementary School who are moving to fifth grade will also need to complete an application in order to receive free and reduced meals at Brenham Middle School.
If you have questions regarding this change, please contact the Brenham ISD Child Nutrition Department at 979-277-3750.
