Liberty Middle School
Welcome Back!! We are starting a brand new school year and look forward to seeing all the smiling faces in the cafeteria this year. We serve breakfast and lunch every day. The menus can be found on the County Food and Nutrition link.
The Board policy for students without adequate funds to purchase school meals allows for elementary students to charge up to 5 lunches. Negative meal charges are not allowed for adults, or for any a la carte purchases. Middle school and high school students can charge one meal. Students who have unpaid meal charges will not be allowed to purchase a la carte food items until meal charges have been repaid.
Elementary students who have exceeded the charge limit, as well as middle and high school students without sufficient funds for lunch, will be offered an alternative snack of a cheese sandwich and milk or juice. To prevent your child from being offered the courtesy snack, please provide money for your student's meals each day or prepay for meals in advance. School cafeterias make every effort to inform students and parents when funds are low with notices sent home via student, verbal reminders to students, and apple stamps.
Parents are responsible to ensure that children have an adequate lunch from home or sufficient funds to purchase school meals. To assist parents, student account balances can be monitored any time via www.mypaymentsplus.com regardless of whether you use the online funding option, send cash or checks, or you may call the school nutrition program.
To view a student meal account balance (or to fund their account) go to www.mypaymentsplus.com and create an account. Add your student(s) by entering their student ID# and selecting their school. The account balance displays in the middle of screen. We also recommend that you set a Low Balance Alert ($10 or higher is suggested) using the links on the page to receive an email reminder when funds are low.
Please remember to keep your students cafeteria account funded. Per Board policy, students without adequate funds to cover meal costs will be offered an alternate meal of a cheese sandwich and milk.
The state of the economy has impacted many of our Forsyth County families with loss of jobs or reduction in income. The Free and Reduced Priced Meal Program is available to assist families during times of financial hardship. The School Nutrition Program accepts free and reduced meal applications throughout the school year. The application can be located at http://www.forsyth.k12.ga.us/site/Default.aspx?PageID=394 or a copy picked up at your child’s school, the Hill Center or the School Nutrition Department. Completed applications can be submitted to your child’s school cafeteria any day of the week. Parents can rest assured the information supplied on the form is strictly confidential and student identification is protected with the computer software used at the cashier’s station.
