Other information regarding Food & Nutrition ServicesMeal Charge policy and Courtesy SnackThe Board policy for elementary students without adequate funds to purchase school meals allows them to charge up to 5 lunches. Effective Jan 20, 2015, the Board revised its charge policy to allow middle and high school students to charge up to 1 lunch meal. This charge allowance does not cover the high school upscale grill meal option nor any a la carte purchases. Students who have unpaid meal charges need to repay the meal charge before purchasing a la carte food items. Board policy prohibits adults from charging.Students who exceed the charge limit without sufficient funds to cover a lunch meal purchase, 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 our new online payment program (www.MyPaymentsPlus.com) regardless of whether you use the online funding option, or send cash or checks.
Just create an account for each student, then throughout the year monitor the student meal account balance (or to fund their account). Add your student(s) by entering their student ID# and selecting their school. The account balance displays in the middle of screen. We highly 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.
Charging for any meals will be discontinued during the last three weeks of the school year.
