Important Information

Dear Parents,

Thank you for choosing Tomball ISD Child Nutrition Department to provide nutritious meals for your child. We consider it an honor to serve our students every day and play an active role in their daily nutrition.

Each TISD student is provided a student ID when enrolled in the district. This number also serves as their meal account number. Students are required to use their ID numbers for every cafeteria purchase. By using ID numbers, our system will capture all the account’s activity, allowing parents to view the items purchased. Please encourage your child to learn their ID number to help us provide faster service to all our customers. Starting 2020-2021, the district will issue ID Badges for multiple uses, including the cafeteria.  ID Badges will be scanned for a TOUCH-FREE transaction. 

Money may be deposited into student accounts with cash or check in the cafeteria, or online at  Advanced payment is not necessary. However, this process is convenient for parents, and a child is always ensured a nutritious cafeteria breakfast and lunch. This unique school year, our cashiers will encourage all change from cash transactions to be applied to student accounts preventing the potential spread of the Covid-19 virus. Contact either your school cafeteria manager or the Child Nutrition Department for information or questions regarding the above payment procedures.

Students may charge meals up to the value of two breakfasts and two lunches (Elem/Int. – $7.50, JH - $8.50, HS - $9.50).  An automated phone call occurs when a negative balance appears on a student’s account. If a student account exhausts the grace period/charge limit, the student must select a peanut butter and jelly or toasted cheese sandwich entrée for lunch and/or a cereal entrée for breakfast until the negative balance is paid. A la Carte items are not available for charging.
We look forward to serving your students during the 2020-2021 school year. If you have any questions, concerns or comments please feel free to call our office and discuss them with our department.
