Unpaid Meal Charge Policy
If a student does not have money to purchase their meal the following steps will be taken:
Students will be able to charge one (1) reimbursable meal to their account. Only meals will be charged – no a la carte items will be charged.
Once their account has incurred a negative balance equal to one (1) reimbursable meal, the student will be given an approved alternate meal until the balance is paid down. The alternate meal will be 8oz of milk, cheese sandwich on a whole grain roll, and their choice of fruit and/or vegetables.
Parents are made aware of their child’s negative account balance by:
- Discreetly cafeteria staff will remind students regarding their negative meal account when their meals are charged to their account.
- Weekly automated emails and phone calls to households
- Food and Nutrition Services may contact households by phone.
If a household is unable to pay for their child’s meal, they are strongly encouraged to apply for free and/or reduced meals. Applications are accepted at anytime throughout the year.
