Meal Charges

Elementary Schools

The following guidelines are followed for elementary students with meal charges.

Students are expected to have funds available for the purchase of their meal. Once a student's account falls to a negative balance a letter will be sent home and a message will be sent through ParentLink to notify the parent.

Elementary students that do not have funds in their account will be allowed to charge up to $15.00 to include regular meals only - no extra items may be charged. Once the limit is met students will no longer receive a meal tray but will be offered a snack with a beverage until the account is paid in full.

No meal charges will be allowed beginning in May in order to reconcile all negative balances before the end of the school year.


Middle Schools
