Looks like school starts tomorrow for many little children, in my area! My daughter has swim practice at 5:15 a.m., even. There is so much going on about school, and not, it’s crazy and it’s really making my (sweating) head spin. Many of my friends and neighbors are getting their power on. Me, I’m not one of them. I’m working on my 3rd generator in this storm we call IKE. I will have to change the oil tomorrow am. Wish me luck. I don’t have power, but I have the next best thing, a working generator. Ok, onto the “news” on schools. Looks like Humble’s website has a lot going on. I was at Oak Forest today confirming my job for tomorrow (or cancelation) and overheard them talking about the “free” meals. Yes, in deedie, there will be free meals for a short time.

Due to Hurricane Ike, the Humble Child Nutrition Department has received permission from the US Department of Agriculture to provide meals free of charge for all students for a 10 day period beginning on Thursday, September 25th and ending on Wednesday, October 8th. All students, regardless of their status before the storm, will be able to receive a free breakfast and a free lunch at their school during this time period. Any a la carte items selected will be at regular prices. Because of supply and delivery issues due to Hurricane Ike, the menus may not match what is published. Currently our offerings may be limited; we are making every effort to return to our published menu as quickly as possible.

The following campuses do have power and will resume class on Sept. 25.

  • Atascocita High
  • Humble High
  • Kingwood High
