In order to provide students and parents with the best possible
service, clarity, and accountability surrounding the school lunch
program, the following procedures regarding lunch account balances is
1. Lunches are expected to be ordered and paid for in advance.
2. The lunch program works within a strict budget and the
number of meals planned and prepared each day is carefully determined.
In order to ensure that sufficient food is available to those who have
paid, we can no longer provide the full menu to students who have not
preordered lunch. If a child does not have a cold lunch from home, an
alternative lunch that complies with USDA requirements (sandwich or
cereal, fruit and milk) will be offered in place of the regular hot
lunch. The parent will be notified and charged for the alternate meal.
3. Parents with a balance
due of more than $10.00 will be notified in writing. Once the
balance notification has been sent out, parents will have five (5) days
to pay or make arrangements to pay outstanding balances.
4. If no action is taken, parent will be contacted by phone.
Students will be unable to participate in the lunch program (orders
will not be processed) until the balance is paid or a payment agreement
is made with the principal.
