Student Handbook » Cafeteria



Payment for Meals: Students are required to prepay their lunch account.  Students should prepay BEFORE school starts each day. Students are allowed one “charge” lunch when their account becomes negative. Students will not be allowed to “charge” (going into the negative on their lunch account) further than the cost of ONE breakfast and/or lunch meal (one day’s worth of meals = $4.60). Students must maintain a positive balance at all times for their school meals.  

It is the student’s responsibility to alert parents of the status of their lunch account. Automated alerts are sent out throughout the district, however, and students are told every day as they go through the lunch line if they need more lunch money in their account. If a students does not have money to deposit into their lunch account, they are encouraged to pack a lunch from home.


Lunch Prices: Breakfast is $1.75 and will be served from 7:20 am until 7:40 am.  A lunch, including milk is $2.85. Balances listed on PowerSchool are not always accurate. The Mealtime program interfaces with PowerSchool once per week – making the totals listed on PowerSchool accurate only once per week. For accurate account balance information, please call the office at 789-8096.


Free and Reduced Lunch Forms: Each school year a new application is required for the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program unless the family receives a letter in the mail during the summer stating that a student was pre-approved through the Food Stamp Direct Certification Program.  If a student was on the Free and Reduced Meal Program on the last day of the 2017-2018 school year, that status (free or reduced) will NOT be carried over into the new school year.  Please re-apply early to insure those students will not be dropped from the program.  If you are eligible for free or reduced lunch, PLEASE FILL OUT the forms and return to the school as soon as possible. You will be responsible for any lunch charges incurred during the approval process.
