MEAL CHARGE POLICY:
Since parents may sometimes forget to
make pre-payments or send money with their children for school
meals, the School Nutrition Program extends the courtesy of an
occasional meal charge. It is the goal of the School Nutrition
Program to make nutritious meals accessible to all students to help
support their academic success. However, excessive meal charges can
place financial and time burdens on the School Nutrition Program.
The following practices have been established to assist students
when they do not have money to pay for breakfast or lunch meals.
Whenever a student is allowed to charge a meal, it is expected that
his/her parent will repay the charge the following school day.
