The district charge policy states that a scholar will be allowed to charge a maximum of three (3) meals to their account after the balance reaches zero. After that, the scholar will receive an alternative lunch meal. This meal will consist of a Sun Butter and Jelly sandwich or a cheese sandwich. However, we will continue with regular lunch meals served to all scholars, regardless of reaching the charge limit, until September 1, 2022.
As a CHISD parent you have a few options for your child’s lunch meals:
Send your child to school with a nutritional sack lunch from home
Complete the free and reduced lunch form to see if your child qualifies for free lunch at school. You can access the form here. CHISD will take applications and use family income to qualify scholars for free, reduce-price, or paid meals.
Allow your child to purchase their lunch at school. You will need to create an account on MyPaymentsPlus and add funds to your child’s account. You can access MyPaymentsPlus here.
Cell Phone Usage
Please make sure your scholars are not texting or calling out during classtime. Scholars may have their phones out during morning arrival, lunch, and dismissal. Teachers may confiscate phones if they are out without permission.
