Breakfast and Hot Lunch Program and Charging Policy
Every student has their own individual lunch account. When applying money to their account, please send payments to the main office with each student’s name, class and the amount you wish to put in their account.
Students eligible for free/reduced meals also have individual lunch accounts. Money can be applied to their accounts for ala carte items, juice and extra milk. Only the breakfast and hot lunch/salad bar qualifies for the free/reduced pricing.
When your student’s lunch account falls below $0 a negative balance notification will be emailed on Wednesdays. If your student’s account continues in the negative an email reminder will be sent or a phone call from the office will be made. The principal will be made aware of any severe negative balances. *Application for a change in meal eligibility is always available through Mrs. Tourney.
If a student’s account is negative they will be allowed to charge their lunch until payment is made. No student is denied a hot lunch/salad bar. No breakfast, ala carte, juice or extra milk can be charged.
To eliminate end of the year negative lunch accounts, we change charging policy on May 1. Students with negative balances can continue to charge their lunch, but will receive an alternate lunch, consisting of a cheese sandwich, vegetable, fruit and milk.
As we move forward, our goal is to implement paperless communication. Whether you pay online or send your payment to the main office (no cost to you), all families are expected to set up their student’s lunch accounts with MyPaymentsPlus for lunch account viewing. There is no cost to enroll. For enrollment, you will need your student’s lunch ID number which is available in the school office from Shelley Tourney. The software provider assesses a fee of 4.75% for the online payment option, but lunch account viewing is free.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
