ADMINISTRATIVE GUIDELINE 8500D: PROCEDURE FOR THE COLLECTION AND PAYMENT FOR CHARGED MEALS: It is the responsibility of the parents to provide for lunch for their children while at school. However, it is important to provide that children receive the nutrition they need to stay focused during the school day. This procedure shall apply in the event that a child neither has a lunch nor the funds to purchase a meal.
A student may charge up to $30 at which time an Express Meal will be provided to the student consisting of all components of a reimbursable meal at a cost of $1.50. Emails will be sent on a weekly basis informing parents/guardians of food service balance. The district will also mail out information to parents/guardians. Regardless of a student’s meal balance, a meal will be provided to him/her, however, they will not be permitted to choose from the ala carte items.
A student’s parents, teacher and Principal will all be notified of the delinquency in the student’s account each time is is necessary for the student to charge a meal to give the parents time to send a check or cash to school with their child to give to the teacher, office staff or food service personnel.
Parents may also pay for school meals via the internet through the District’s Food Service website.
At the discretion of the Principal, a school or private service fund may be established to pay for student’s charged meals, rather than to offer the alternative meal. The Administrative Assistant will work with the Principal to determine a payment schedule for these meals.
