Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Food & Nutrition Services department has been accumulating numerous negative balances and inconsistencies due to the fact that we have not had a Negative Lunch Balance Policy in effect for a couple of years. After researching local districts, we are one of the few that did not have a policy in place.
- When a student’s balance is zero, he/she gets two charges.
- A letter will be placed in their teacher’s mailbox by the cashier once a week.
- You are responsible for maintaining a positive balance in your child’s lunch account.
- After two charges, the student will be offered an alternative choice—what the cook manager decides (bagel w/ cream cheese or cereal plus fruit, vegetable and milk) at a reduced price.
If you feel that you may qualify for Free or Reduced Meals, I encourage you to obtain a yellow application at your school office or go to www.lunchapp.com. You can also set up a free lunch account at www.sendmoneytoschool.com to deposit money or view your child’s account. You will need their student ID # (from school office) to set up an account.
Please understand that the Food & Nutrition Department has been very lenient and is having a difficult time collecting money. We know and understand that the economy has been hit pretty hard. Please call if you have questions or concerns.
