As a reminder, the Food and Nutrition Services department procedure allows each elementary school student the opportunity to charge one lunch meal. Charging at middle schools is at the discretion of each school based administration. No charging of meals is allowed in high schools. A plan for an alternate meal for the student should be available, providing the opportunity of a replacement meal for the student. Your Food and Nutrition Services Manager will contact you to develop a plan for alternate meals for students who have exhausted their meal charge. The Food and Nutrition Services department reached out to parents this summer regarding outstanding meal charges. The department will continue to provide parents the opportunity to pay past due accounts.
