The Burton ISD Child Nutrition Program has received a waiver from the Texas Department of Agriculture which will allow all students to eat school breakfast and lunch at no charge for the remainder of the school year.
Beginning, Monday, March 1, all Burton ISD students can receive a complimentary breakfast and lunch each day. This does not apply to any extra or a la carte food items, which will still be available for purchase.

For those students with balances on their child nutrition payment accounts, that money can still be spent on a la carte items and for any food in addition to the regular breakfast or lunch. If at the end of the school year there is a remaining balance, it will be carried over to the next school year.
Part of this waiver allows Burton ISD to provide breakfast and lunch to any individual age 1 to 18, regardless if they attend our schools as well as during any virtual instruction.

Our Executive Director and our Board of Directors are careful stewards of the generous donations provided by our community, the funding provided by the Town or Round Top, and the grants we receive from wonderful foundations and organizations. A 10 year maintenance program allows us to anticipate and manage major facility repairs. A vibrant group of volunteers allow us to operate the library with just 4 part-time employees.  We are incredibly grateful to the group of generous donors who came together to help us expand the library campus and space by almost double – without putting the library in debt. 
These are concerning times and we may not be as successful with our annual fundraiser as budgeted, Please consider a gift to the library this year to help us meet our budgeted needs.Click Here to Donate

We love our special library treasure and hope we can continue to count on your support and patronage!
