    Charging

    February 2020
    Nutrition Services is revising the current district charging policy. The current policy states that elementary students are able to charge 2 lunches, while middle and high school students are able to charge 1 lunch before receiving a gratis lunch. Currently, charges for breakfast are not allowed, but will be allowed moving forward.

    Students will now be allowed to charge 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches before receiving a gratis meal. This equates to the elementary students (K-4) being able to have a negative balance of $17.25 and the middle and high school students (5-12) being able to have a negative balance of $21.25. The intent is to decrease the amount of gratis meals district wide and also give those parents/guardians who are having financial difficulties some lenience. The goal is to ensure students are receiving a healthy, sustainable breakfast and lunch every day. This is not meant to increase the negative balance at the end of the school year. Parents are encouraged to use MealTime to pay for meals and/or to track purchases made by their student(s).
