Determined free and reduced-price meal eligibilities are valid only during the current school year and for the first thirty (30) school days of each new school year. The Free and Reduced flyer provides more information on available benefits. Visit the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition webpage for the Child Nutrition Programs Income Eligibility Guidelines.

  • 2023-2024 MEAL PRICES  

    Breakfast and lunch prices are based on student eligibility (except at CEP campuses where all meals are free). Meal prices for students have not been raised. Adult meal prices are based on USDA guidance. 

    The 88th Texas Legislature approved funding as part of the General Appropriations Act so that students who qualify for reduced-price school meals can eat breakfast at no charge for the next two years. Students who meet eligibility requirements for reduced price meals must be offered breakfast at no charge by Texas school districts that participate in the School Breakfast Program. 

    Meal prices are as follows:    
    Meals Pricing                
     
    Customers will need money in their School Café accounts or have cash to purchase a la carte items. Students may charge meals as per the following policy and their household will get an automated negative balance call until the negative balance on the cafeteria account is paid.

  • MEALS CHARGE POLICY   

    District charge policy allows students without meal money to receive the menu meal choice for a limited time with the expectation the parent will reimburse all meals charged. 

    Meals Charge

    Parents will be alerted when their child charges for a meal by receiving a courtesy call and/or email through the district automated call out system, if the district parent information is correct and up to date. Parents are responsible for monitoring the amount of money in their child’s account and paying back any borrowed money in a timely manner. If a student owes money on his/her account, he/she will be allowed to purchase snacks and/or a la carte only with cash in hand for that purchase, or once the student’s negative account is paid in full and funds are available to cover additional purchases.

  • SMART TAG ID SYSTEM- 2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR

    SmartTag Logo
    This school year, a new SMART Tag bus rider ID system will be rolled out across Katy ISD school buses to help monitor the ridership of eligible bus riders. The system will enable parents, bus drivers, and school administrators, to review in real time, when and where a student is picked up or dropped off by a school bus. Student identification (ID) cards for eligible riders will include the SMART Tag ID information. Buses will be equipped with a tablet that will read each student’s ID every time they enter and exit their bus. Parents and guardians will also have access to the SMART Tag Parent Web Portal — a cloud-based platform that will enable them to monitor their student’s ridership and bus route. Parents and guardians of eligible bus riders will receive additional information about the Smart Tag ID system via the email address they have on file with the district.

  • #KatyISDSafety: CAMPUS EXTERIOR DOORS SAFETY SIGNAGE 




    All campuses' exterior doors have safety signage indicating that exterior doors must remain closed and locked. The purpose of the signage is to reinforce and remind all staff and students to take the extra precaution of ensuring that doors are closed and locked at all times, and to not open a door for anyone trying to enter. All campus exterior doors already have signage directing all visitors to utilize the main entrance for access to campuses and not side entrances.  These stickers should be left in place, with the new yellow sticker above placed inside over this sticker, allowing the external message to remain outward.  All staff and students should avoid allowing anyone without a district identification badge to “tailgating” or following them into a district facility.

  • NATIONAL CHILD ID PROGRAM

    During the last legislative session, Senate Bill 2158 was passed, which requires the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to provide parents with an inkless, in-home child fingerprint and DNA identification card for children in grades K-8.  If ever needed, parents may submit this kit to federal, state, tribal, or local law enforcement to help locate and return a missing or trafficked child. On behalf of the State of Texas, Katy ISD has distributed these in-home child identification kits to junior high and elementary campuses. Please understand that there is no obligation to use the kit, but if you choose, this will allow you to have a set of fingerprints and DNA for your child that you can keep at home and turn over to law enforcement in case of an emergency. Please do not return the kits (used or unused) to your child’s school.
