Meal Prices/Charge Policy/Refund Request Form
Charge Policy on Meals for All Schools

Families play a key role in this effort and are responsible for purchases made by their child in our school cafeterias. Because we are a self-funded program and unpaid meal debt is not reimbursed by the State or Federal government, the following procedures have been established:

All students (TK-12) will be allowed to charge reimbursable breakfast and/ or lunch meals to their school lunch account Charges will not be allowed for adult meals, non-student meals, second meals, a la carte purchases, and milk.

Letters Home: Letters will be sent to the household of student(s) who owe money on their meal account. 

Phone calls: Phone calls will be made to the parent/ legal guardian of the student lunch accounts that have a negative balance at least twice a week by the school site cashier or automated message.  Daily, automated, phone calls will be made to meal accounts that have a negative balance of $20.00 or more.

Automated emails: Emails will be sent to the parent/ legal guardian of student meal accounts that have a negative balance every day after the first charge.

If a student has not paid for five or more previous meals, the school will:

  1. Determine whether the student is categorically eligible for free meals;

  2. If no application has been submitted for the student to determine his or her eligibility for free or reduced-price meals, make no fewer than two attempts to contact the student’s parent or guardian to have him or her submit an application; and

  3. Have a principal, assistant principal, or school counselor contact the parent or guardian for the purpose of

    1. Offering assistance with completing an application to determine the student’s eligibility for free or reduced-price meals;

    2. Determining whether there are any household issues that may prevent the student from having sufficient funds for school meals; and

    3. Offering any other appropriate assistance.
