COVID-19 Update: Staff Diagnosis

Brenham ISD has been informed that a food service staff member has received a positive diagnosis of COVID-19. This staff member most recently worked at Brenham High School on Tuesday, May 12 and Wednesday, May 13, but was not involved in the distribution of the boxed meals. All members of the food services team who worked with this employee are quarantining for the next 14 days and the food preparation area at Brenham High School is being cleaned and sanitized. Meal distribution will continue at the school with a new preparation and distribution team.

Safety is paramount as our food services team works to ensure our students have what they need throughout the school closure. All items included in the boxed meals are pre-packaged.

Our certified food service staff members wear gloves and masks to prepare meals and the food preparation area is sanitized after each use. Social distancing protocols are followed at all times. 

“The Brenham ISD child nutrition department has been on the frontlines throughout this pandemic,” said Superintendent Dr. Walter Jackson. “Words can’t express our gratitude for these staff members, whose work and dedication enable us to continue to deliver a critical service to our students during this uncertain time.”

Brenham ISD will continue the distribution of boxed meals each Wednesday as part of the summer feeding program. Distribution will continue at Brenham High School from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at Goodwill Missionary Baptist Church from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with a final distribution on Wednesday, June 24.
