Nutrition Service - Meal Charge Policy
The district has a “no charge policy” for all students and adults. The superintendent and the director of nutrition services will develop a procedure for collection of money when a student's account has a negative balance. Part of the procedure will be to provide the parent with a free/reduced lunch application for them to complete to determine if they would qualify for free or reduced-price meals. If the child qualifies for free or reduced-price meals the negative balance will still be required to be paid in accordance with Federal Guidelines. Parents can send lunches with the student but the negative balance will be required to be paid. During the process to recover the meal account charges, students will continue to be served a Type A school lunch if a sack lunch is not provided by the parent/guardian. When children are not provided lunches by their parents/guardians, they are considered children in need of care and the Social Rehabilitation Services will be notified.
