THINGS TO KNOW
Elementary students can charge 2 meals.
When the charge limit has been
reached students will be given a power bar snack and milk. While middle and high school students cannot
charge meals, middle school students are given a power bar and milk if they
have no money for lunch.
Every effort is made to let parents know that their child(ren) need
money for meals. An automated call
system will be activated and will place a phone call to all families with a student
who has a negative balance. Low balance email notifications are also sent out throughout the week.
Payments are accepted at all schools by cash or check. Phone payments are accepted at the Nutrition Services office via Visa/Mastercard, $10 minimum required for all phone payments or online. Click Family Access Online Prepayments link for instructions on setting up an online account.
Please call or visit the Nutrition Services office and we will be glad
to help with any account or meal status questions.
