Food Services Charge Policy

Minimize

Cafeteria Charges

Students not participating in the free and reduced-prices meal program shall only be allowed to charge up to a maximum of $25.00 in meals (breakfast/lunch) per student.
Charge balances of $.01 to $9.99 will be sent home weekly with each child.

Once the charge balance reaches ten dollars ($10.00), parents will be notified by Food Service personnel and asked to settle the account. A free and reduced price meal application will accompany this letter. Notices will be sent weekly until the account is settled.

If the account reaches $20.00 the parents/guardian will be asked to meet with either the Food Service Director, Family Resources liaison or School Administrator to establish a plan of action to settle the account.

Should the account reach $25.00 in meal charges, no more charges will be allowed.
Parents/guardians will be responsible for sending breakfast/lunch with their child until the balance is paid in full.  Parents will be given one final (5) day notice to pay the account in full.

After final notice is given, the account will be deemed as uncollectible and forwarded to DISTRICT COURT for collection. Any court costs incurred will be the responsibility of the student’s parent/guardian.

Ala Carte or extra item charging will be limited to beverages for students who do not have a drink with their meal. (Example: students that bring meals from home or those who are not feeling well and only want to purchase a beverage.)
