Crowded Lunchroom

We are so glad so many of you choose to come visit your student during lunch. We hope you understand that we have limited space for visitors, and visitors MAY NOT sit at the regular lunch tables due to safety concerns. You might want to consider visiting on days other than Mondays and Fridays as these days seem to be especially crowded.


Also, district policy states that only parents and grandparents, and non-school aged siblings are able to visit during lunch. Unfortunately, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends are not able to attend. We appreciate your support.

The Bethke Parent Handbook

We are still waiting on official publication of the Katy ISD Parent Handbook, but we wanted to share the Bethke pages with you. This information and lots of other helpful information can be found on the Bethke Website. It can be found here: http://www.katyisd.org/campus/cbe/Pages/default.aspx


The link to the parent handbook for Bethke can be found here:

Track your child's Bus!

The Katy ISD Transportation Department is exited to communicate that all 2019 – 2020 route buses will be equipped with GPS systems. With the new GPS systems, parents, campuses and Transportation personnel will be able to track buses in real-time through a downloadable application from Edulog. Parents and patrons having children riding buses in Katy ISD, the link below contains information on how to download the application. We look forward to working with our parents and campuses as we continue to find new ways to improve safety, efficiency, and responsiveness within the Transportation Department.

Your school’s GPS district code to use in the application is : 52697930
