Getting

your annual

mammogram is

still important.

During the coronavirus

pandemic, we are:

Screening all patients,

ensuring only those without

COVID-19 symptoms are

seen in the office.

Houston Methodist West Hospital

can see you safely.

Getting your annual mammogram is one of the most

important steps you can take to stay healthy. That’s why

our Breast Care Centers are taking every necessary

precaution during the coronavirus pandemic to keep

you and our staff members safe.

Wearing masks and other

personal protective equipment

while providing patient care.

HOUSTON ASTROS ALEX BREGMAN CHARITY

DONATES IPADS TO KATY ISD

It was a day to remember for many Katy Independent School District

students, who had a visit from Houston Astros third baseman and

shortstop Alex Bregman and the school received brand new iPads,

courtesy of the Bregman Cares Charity. Four Katy ISD schools, including

Leonard, McRoberts, Griffin and Stephens elementary schools, welcomed

the baseball player to their campus for the donation, all while practicing

COVID-19 safety protocols.

“It feels great to see their smiles,” said Houston Astros Alex Bregman.

“Schools are doing a great job of keeping students safe and also helping

them learn. Katy ISD has done a great job in these tough times and is

helping the kids through their learning. It’s been great to be able to hand

out iPads today,” added Bregman.

The Bregman Cares mission is to provide awareness, support, time and

resources to children locally and throughout the country. For the past

few years, the organization has focused on donating technology devices

and educational resources for students.

KATY ISD PROVIDING FREE MEALS

TO ALL KATY AREA STUDENTS

Through an extended waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture

(USDA) and Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), Katy ISD began

providing free meals to all Katy area students on Monday, September

21 st . Students can receive breakfast and lunch at no cost through

December 31 st or pending available funds through the USDA and TDA.

“All students are eligible for one breakfast and one lunch meal per day per

federal guidance,” said Nutrition & Food Service Executive Director Donna

Pittenger. “Parents can however add funds to their student’s Pay N’ Go

meal account for a la carte purchases or in preparation for when the

USDA waiver ends,” added Pittenger.

For students participating in Katy ISD virtual instruction, as well as

children 18 and under not enrolled in Katy ISD, breakfast and lunch can

be picked up at designated school curbside distribution sites from 4 to

6 PM, Monday through Friday. Meals are packaged to be heated and

eaten at home and are to be picked up a day before the intended use.

Distribution sites include:

· Cinco Ranch High School, 23440 Cinco Ranch Blvd, Katy, TX 77494

· Mayde Creek High School, 19202 Groeschke Road, Katy, TX 77084

· Morton Ranch High School, 21000 Franz Road, Katy, TX 77449

The TDA policy now requires parents picking up meals, without a

student, to present one of the following forms of documentation for

each child: an official letter, email, electronic school application, student

report card, student ID card, attendance records with student’s names

or a birth certificate. Once the waiver expires, Katy ISD will switch back

to the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. Free and reduced

meal applications must still be submitted for the 2020-2021 school year

to determine benefits after the waiver ends. Parents can visit schoolcafe.
