Campus Expectations for ID Cards and Tardies
Please remind your son or daughter to bring his or her ID and wear it each and every school day around his or her neck. Our campus and Katy ISD expectation is that all students will wear IDs to school and throughout the school day. Additionally, IDs are needed to go through the cafeteria line daily and to check out materials from the library.
It is very important that our students are on time to class each and every class period. When a student is not in the classroom when the tardy bell rings, then he or she is marked tardy by the classroom teacher. Student consequences will begin once a student accumulates 4 tardies.
Reminder for game day meals--have your son bring a sack dinner, drop off dinner at front office, or order Jason's Deli.
7th grade ordering link--will take orders up to 24 hours before the game
8th grade ordering link--will take orders up to 24 hours before the game
All parents and students must purchase tickets online. They will not be taking cash at the gate. https://www.katyisd.org/PNG/Pages/PayNGoTix.aspx
One last note for game day: All Jaguars are expected to travel to the game as a team. A bus will be taking the boys home after their game back to WMJH for parent pickup.

Student Password Resets
Katy ISD uses the MyKaty Cloud single sign on platform that allows students to access all District applications with one User ID and one password. In order to promote a safe and secure online learning experience, secondary students (grades 6-12) are requested to rest their password by September 15 by visiting the Katy ISD Password Self-Service webpage. After that, secondary students will be prompted to reset their single sign in password once every 180 days (about twice a year).
Campus Advisory Team Volunteers Needed
Are you interested in learning more about the planning and organization of the school? Would you be interested in being a member of the Campus Advisory Team? This group meets only four times a year for about an hour. The purpose of this group is to serve in an advisory capacity by being involved in decisions in areas of planning, budgeting, curriculum, staffing patterns, staff development and school organization. We need parent and community representatives. Contact Mrs. Corn if you are interested or have questions. (281) 237-6406 or email@example.com.
Free and Reduced Meals and Socioeconomic Forms
In preparation for the new school year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced on April 20 that all schools will be allowed to serve free breakfast and lunch to all students, regardless of eligibility, through June 30, 2022. While meals are free to everyone, it is important to still fill out a Free and Reduced Meal Application, as you may qualify for other benefits and discounts. Additional benefits may include:
Use of musical instruments for band and orchestra
Career and Technical Education certification exams
Summer school tuition
Advanced Placement exams
SAT and ACT test fees
College application fees
Career and Technical Education fees
Free and Reduced Meal Benefit Applications are available online at SchoolCafe.com. To deposit funds online for a la carte purchases, please visit Pay N’ Go.
In addition, to ensure Katy ISD qualifies for eligible funding from the state during the extended free meal period through June 2022, Katy ISD is asking all parents to complete the Socioeconomic Income Form two-part questionnaire in the Annual Student Update. Submitting the questionnaire information will support Katy ISD in qualifying for additional state dollars to support our students’ continued academic and personal success during the upcoming school year.
The following updates are examples of content that has been added to the Safe Return to School Plan.
