Important Meal Charge Policy Update

Important Meal Charge Policy Update

(This policy does not affect students on the Free or Reduced-priced school meal program.)

Effective January 1, 2019, when a student's meal account balance reaches $0.00, Nutrition Services Dept. will extend a $10.00 borrowing limit to allow parents time to repay and replenish the student's account. Once the borrowing limit is reached and a student forgets or loses their money for a meal, they will receive an alternate meal.  The alternate meal will be served until the  unpaid meal debt is cleared and the account is brought to a positive balance.  

The alternate meal will still be a nutritionally adequate meal and will consist of the following items:

  • Whole Grain Crackers
  • String Cheese (2 each)
  • Daily Fruit and Vegetable Selections
  • Choice of White or Chocolate Milk   

Alternate meal charges are the responsibility of the parent/guardian and will be billed separtely through the Nutrition Services Department.  To help eliminate the need of alternate meals, Nutrition Services has partnered with mySchoolBucks, an on-line payment service company, to allow for quicker fund deposits into meal accounts.  Please visit and view their check or cash pre-payment options which are also available in the cafeteria.
