Child nutrition introduces new balance check kiosks at BJHS and BHS

Students at Brenham Junior High School and Brenham High School have a new opportunity to self-check meal account balances on campus. New balance check kiosks in each cafeteria will allow students to scan their school ID card to check account balances before entering the serving line. Students will see a green check mark if they have enough money for breakfast and lunch, or a red X if they need to add money to their meal account.  

Brenham ISD Child Nutrition Director Sandra Baxter says this is just one more way the child nutrition department can service students and families. “The kiosks are in addition to our online portal ( and will hopefully provide students with a discreet way to ensure their meal accounts have sufficient funding for breakfast and lunch,” said Baxter. Baxter also explained that students are afforded a charge limit of 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches before they are provided an alternate meal. Students who are within the charge limit will also see the green check mark.

The kiosks will be live when students return to school on Tuesday, January 8.
