Posted: April 4, 2020

We are now entering week four of the school closure and have been given better directives from our partners at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and ARAMARK on how to proceed with implementing social distancing and verification of age of those receiving meals at our school-based meal sites.

Any child that is 18 years old or younger can still receive a meal at any of NBISD’s locations at no cost regardless of their eligibility status. Students not currently enrolled in NBISD also qualify for meal service at no cost. Additionally, the child does not have to be present to receive the meal but now a new verification process has been put in place.

Beginning Monday, April 6, any adult that comes to a meal site without the child who will receive the meal must provide one (1) of the following items as documentation per child. 

  • Student ID Badge

  • Report Card

  • Student ID number

  • NBISD issued iPad

  • NBISD pick-up tag (elementary students only)

  • Copy of birth certificate

  • Child’s state ID

  • Child’s driver’s license

  • Copy of the NBISD letter about these new guidelines (with student name emailed 4-4-20)

Once the child’s age is verified, the staff will issue the adult a car tag for use moving forward. Please place the car tag in your vehicle dashboard when picking up meals.

The following pick-up procedures will also take effect on Monday, April 6 to honor social distancing guidelines:

  • remain in your vehicle

  • get your pick-up tag or be ready to show proper documentation

  • maintain 6-feet distance

  • open your trunk & wait for an employee to deliver food

  • if you don’t have a trunk – an employee will deliver the food on a cart for you to remove

  • the food and place in your vehicle

Through our partnership with the Texas Department of Agriculture, New Braunfels ISD is able to provide curbside meals for pick-up only. Since our schools are closed, the meals will be packaged to-go. 


Each “to-go” meal will come at no charge, regardless of the student’s meal eligibility status. Your child can go to any of the sites to receive a free meal even if they don’t attend that particular campus. 


Families are asked to remain in their vehicle when picking up meals. No one will be allowed to enter the building during meal pick-up times. Families that walk to the school will also be served a meal to go.


For questions regarding the meal service, email cvanderbrook@nbisd.org or call 830-627-6743.

    Where can I find menus?
    You may find menus at https://nbisd.nutrislice.com/.

     

    What does a full meal include?
    Breakfast menus offer a variety of entree, fruit and milk selections daily and when
    offered a choice students must take at least ½ cup fruit and 2 other items to make a meal.

    Lunch menus include entrée choices ranging from hot feature items, grill
    favorites, hearty salads, and sandwiches that provide meat/meat alternates and
    grains plus milk, fruits and vegetable sides. Of the 5 components offered, students MUST take at least 1/2 cup of fruit OR vegetable and a minimum of 2 other foods for a reimbursable meal when a choice is offered.

    Is NBISD a peanut free school district?
    Yes, the food served is peanut free and prepared in a peanut-free environment. We understand and are sensitive to allergies that students have today. We take great precaution with students who have allergies. If your child has specific allergies, please contact your campus nurse or the Child Nutrition office 830-627-6745.

    Is breakfast available for my child?
    Yes, breakfast is available at all NBISD campuses. Please visit http://www.nbisd.org/page/nutr.menus for menus.

    Can I pay for my child’s lunch online?
    Money can be added to your child’s account at any time by sending cash or a check made out to “NBISD Food Service Program” in an envelope. Your child should give this envelope to the lunch cashier before school.

    Remember, the envelope should be clearly marked “Lunch Program” with the child’s name, amount, teacher’s room, and parent contact information in the event of any questions. If the payment is for more than one student in the same campus, indicate how the money should be split (for example, Johnny = $10.00 and Sally=$15.00). 

    Payment can be made in any amount to best suit a family’s budget. We cannot split payments for siblings or students that attend different campuses.

    Payment can also be made online at www.myschoolbucks.com. More information is available on our Web site under “Parents”. Your child can also pay on a daily basis.

    How can I find out what my balance is in my child’s account and his or her
    purchase history?

    The easiest way is to create an account with myschoolbucks.com. Your child’s
    purchase history is available one day after the account has been created This site will even enable you set “low balance reminders” that will generate an email to you when your child’s account falls below your preset amount. Or you can contact the Child Nutrition office at 830-627-6743 or your child’s specific campus cafeteria.

    What happens if my child forgets his or her lunch?
    If your son or daughter happens to forget their lunch from home, they may
    choose from the meal plan and you will subsequently be charged.

    My family qualified for free/reduced-priced meals last year. Do I need to do
    anything for this school year?

    Yes, every year a new application needs to be completed. Students are grandfathered in from last year for the first 30 calendar days of the school year. To avoid disruption in your child’s status, a new application must be received by the Child Nutrition office by 10/8/2019.  For more information please visit our Free/Reduced Meal Program page.
