Meal Charging Policy

Charging of meals is only allowed at both elementary buildings.  Once an elementary student has charged two meals they have the option of a peanut butter or cheese sandwich and milk.  This option will only be offered two times.  Parents please check with your child and inspect book bags for notices concerning payment.  Any student who brings their lunch and wishes to purchase a drink may do so for $0.50. A student receiving free or reduced meals that chooses to bring their lunch but would like milk must pay $0.50 for the milk. High school and middle school students are not allowed to charge meals or ala cart items: no exceptions.  A peanut butter or cheese sandwich and milk is available to those students who may need a meal.  This option is only offered twice also.  Notices concerning payment are not sent home to parents of high school or middle school students. Meal envelopes are available at both elementary offices and cafeterias.  Cash or checks are accepted. To ensure proper credit to the students account please state students full name on check and meal envelope.  For elementary parent’s convenience, we strongly encourage account payments by the week or month rather than daily. If parents wish their child/children’s account can be blocked from purchasing ala cart items. Once the account is blocked it cannot be changed from the point of sale.
