Informational Documents

Charging Policies​ 

Jr./Sr. High School:  When a student accumulates a negative balance, he/she will be notified by the cashier and parents will be notified.  Students may receive an alternate lunch at the current lunch price.  When a student has reached the charging limit of $10.00, service will be discontinued until payment is made.  Students will not be allowed to charge a la carte items or second lunches at any time.  Payment may be made by cash, check or online using a credit card.

For Staff:  When a staff member reaches a negative balance of $10.00, service will be discontinued until payment is made.  Staff will be notified by email when they have reached a negative balance of $5.00.
 
Any significant lunch account balance (over $5.00) will be pursued for collection before it is determined to be uncollectable, pursuant to School Board Policy #224.
 
A lunch account becomes inactive after nine (9) weeks with no deposits or withdrawals. An inactive lunch account that has a positive balance of $5.00 or less may be receipted back into the school lunch fund where the School Lunch Program funds are maintained. An inactive lunch account that has a nominal negative account balance of $5.00 or less may be offset against the positive balances in the Fund; provided, however, that if the parent requests and can document entitlement to the positive balance in the account, the parent is entitled to a refund of that amount.
 
Once classified as bad debt, non-Federal funding sources shall reimburse the school lunch program account for the total amount of the bad debt. If funds to reimburse the Corporation for this bad debt are not available from another source, such as school or community organizations (like the PTA) or any other non-Federal source, the funds to reimburse the school lunch program shall be transferred from the Corporation Operations Fund or other State or local funding to make that reimbursement.

1. Sodium limits are still in effect with no additional salt available to students.  We offer several flavors of no salt seasonings that students can add to their food to enhance the flavor and taste.

We continue to meet requirements set forth in the usda healthy hunger-free kids act of 2010 which includes requirements in these five (5) food components:  meat/meat alternate, vegetables, fruits, grains and milk.  We follow an offer vs serve program which means students have to select three (3) out of the five (5) components offered, with a fruit and/or vegetable required, to make a complete meal.
