Lunch Policy

Download Order Forms:



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 in effect:

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 (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.
