Children may be fed according to the previous year’s eligibility for the first 30 days of school while the new application is being processed. If a parent has not submitted a new application by September 28, 2018, the child reverts to full pay status.
Elementary students sometimes forget their lunch money or lose it. As a courtesy to these young students, Food and Nutrition Services allows a child to charge one lunch. After that, the child is given a replacement meal. Typically the replacement meal consists of a cheese or jelly sandwich and a cup of fruit or milk.
