The school district operates a lunch and breakfast program. Students may either bring their own lunch to school or purchase a lunch which includes milk. Monthly menus can be found on the district website or in the district newsletter.
Students are expected to observe proper behavior and good manners during breakfast and lunch. The students are expected to keep the noise at an appropriate level.
Breakfast will not be served on late-start days. A computerized “meal tracker” system is installed in the school district so that students may deposit any amount of money in their account.
Breakfast, lunch, and afternoon milk (for students in grades K2) will be deducted as they use it. Individual tickets are not necessary and parents may, if they so desire, have one “family account” for all of their children, regardless of grade level. Parents are notified when an individual’s account or a family’s account is getting low. A text message/email is sent to the parent/guardian or a notification of the account balance is sent home with the student. This awareness gives approximately one week to deposit money into their account before reaching a negative balance.
If the account is negative, a student is not allowed to receive ala carte items. See the Student Fee Chart below for a listing of breakfast, lunch, and milk charges.
Negative lunch balances are not encouraged however, students will be allowed to charge school meals on their account until the balance reaches a negative $25 for individuals or negative $50 for family accounts.
If an account reaches the negative balance limit, the family will be sent a letter and an email indicating the school district, after five school days, will not be able to provide a hot lunch or breakfast until the account balance is reduced under the designated limit.
Notes will also be sent home with elementary students.
Should the account not be funded by the date indicated, parents/guardians should be prepared to send a sack lunch with their child or children until the balances are back under the designated limits.
For questions or concerns, please contact the Superintendent’s Office at (712) 629-2325.
