Meals are being handled differently by some of the districts this year. BCISD elementary campuses will offer free breakfasts and lunches. Middle and high school students will be charged for lunches after two years of free lunches because of the availability of pandemic-related federal funds. Middle school lunches cost $2.60; high school lunches, $2.85.
