Burton ISD has been approved for each student in the district to receive free breakfast and lunch, starting Monday.
The Burton ISD Child Nutrition Program has received a waiver from the Texas Department of Agriculture, which will allow all students to receive a complimentary breakfast and lunch each day for the remainder of the school year.
This does not apply to any extra or a la carte food items, which will still be available for purchase.
Students with balances remaining on their child nutrition payment accounts can use that money for a la carte items and any food in addition to the regular breakfast or lunch. If at the end of the year there is a remaining balance, it will be carried over to the next school year.
Part of this waiver allows Burton ISD to provide breakfast and lunch to any individual age 1 to 18, regardless of if they are a Burton ISD student, as well as during any virtual instruction.
